Featured Upcoming Events
Worship Service: Community Memorial Day Observance by Rev. Bruce Taylor, First Parish Church and Ken Johnson, Ashby Congregational Church

Sunday, May 28, 10:00 AM

First Parish Church and the Ashby Congregational Church join for this community worship service, to be held outdoors on the Common (if the weather is good) or indoors at the Congregational Church (if it rains).

On Memorial Day, we honor the memory of men and women who died in military service, and our loved ones from past generations who continue to live on in blessed memory. In today's service, the ministers of our two congregations will reflect on the importance of memory in shaping our lives, giving meaning to our past and to our future.

Worship Service: "Healing Moments" by Rev. John Pastor, UU Society of Gardner

Sunday, June 11, 10:00 AM

When I was a Chaplain Intern in a hospital I was told, "You can heal but you cannot cure." During my time in the hospital I learned what this meant. Many of the world's spiritual traditions have stories of healing. How can we be healed today? I will be offering Reiki during this service.
