Featured Upcoming Events
Outing: "A Year with Frog and Toad" Musical

Friday, March 6, 7:00 PM

Arnold Lobel's characters, Frog and Toad, have made numerous appearances in Rev. Bruce's services in his Stories for all Ages. In honor of Frog and Toad's connection to our church, we're having a church outing to see A Year with Frog and Toad, a children's musical being presented by the Nashua Junior Actorsingers.

Tickets are $14 for adults and $12 for students and seniors.

Carpools will leave Ashby Common at 4:30 pm so there's time for dinner at Agave Azul before the performance beginning at 7:00 pm. If the carpool plan is not convenient for you, you can meet us in Nashua for dinner about 5:15 pm or the show at 7:00 pm.

Spring Forward or you'll arrive at church for coffee hour

Worship Service: "What does 'Free Church' Mean to You?" by Rev. Bruce Taylor

Sunday, March 8, 10:00 AM

Unitarian Universalism is part of a larger, free-church tradition. As such we are self-governing and self-supporting. As we approach the annual stewardship drive, now is a good time to ask ourselves: what does it mean to be a free church? What is this freedom to which we aspire, and how does it transform lives?

Boston Gay Men's Chorus Concert in Groton

Sunday, March 8, 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Back in November 2011, a group of us attended a performance by the Boston Gay Men's Chorus, sponsored by the First Parish UU Church of Groton. They're bringing the BGMC back to Groton. All net proceeds will be donated to the Gay Straight Alliances in several local high and middle schools.

See the Calendar for information about all Sunday services and other activities at First Parish Church.
