Featured Upcoming Events
Visiting the UU Church of Winchendon – "UnPresidented" by Pastor Inanna Arthen

Sunday, February 26, 10:30 AM

Once a month during snow season, we attend a worship service at a nearby UU church.

This month, we're visiting the UU Church of Winchendon.

In February we honor the birthdays of two former Presidents of the United States: George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. We see our Presidents as larger than life, and attach all kinds of stories and legends to them, positive and negative. What can we fairly expect of our Presidents, and what is our responsibility in choosing them and following their leadership?

Carpools leave Ashby Common at 10:30 am for the service beginning at 11:00 am.

Worship Service: Enough ... Enough! by Loretta CR Hubley

Sunday, March 5, 10:00 AM

It is a relevant topic for our times that the secret of happiness is both Gratitude and Perseverance.

musicians: Lizards in the Hayloft

Worship Service: "Redemption Song" by Rev. Jeanne Nieuwejaar, UU Congregation in Milford

Sunday, March 12, 10:00 AM

The word redemption may have an archaic ring to it, but it is, in fact, a principle that is central to our liberal religious faith.

In this service, we will look in particular at the challenge of reclaiming the value of the lives of those who are serving time in prison, reflecting through the lens of our faith on this very troubling issue.

Potluck Lunch after the service

Sunday, March 12, 11:30 AM

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