Religious Education and Family Ministry at First Parish focuses on engaging with children, youth, and adults with the family – whether the family is a family of one or a family with multiple adults and kids. We create opportunities to provide learning about Unitarian Universalism, spirituality, faith development, and personal growth across all ages. Please explore the other pages in this section to learn more about what we offer and how you can participate.

The RE programming that occurs during Sunday service will move inside. For the health and safety of all, when we move inside, all children will be required to wear masks. All the adults working with the children and youth will be masked. All areas have NEW air purification machines and are properly ventilated. We ask that children enter through the side door and come directly downstairs. After service is over, a parent or caregiver should come to the classroom to get their child.

The programming is traditionally in person. In light of the highly infectious nature of Omicron, all children and youth programming has moved to ONLINE only until further notice. For those who decide that it is okay for their children to attend, we will see you soon. For those who will wait, we look forward to seeing you when you are ready.

If you haven’t enrolled your child(ren) yet, here’s the LINK. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to us at

In the spirit of community,
