Worship Service: "A Black Christ" by Rev. Colin Bossen

Social Justice Working Group meeting [new date]

Wednesday, February 21, 7:00 PM

One of the goals identified for this church year is to plan a series (of talks, plays or concerts) for the spring around a theme, which for this year will be Social Justice.
A number of ideas have been floated for the series. We would appreciate your input.

Worship Service: "The Concept of Namasté" by Wil Darcangelo, First Parish Church UU of Fitchburg

Sunday, February 25, 10:00 AM

Namasté is a choice to read between the lines. To listen honestly. To engage with another human on the basis of an assumption that they are a remarkable and utterly divine being before they even open their mouth. And holding on to that belief once they have. It's a faith that everything they say is pure divinity, filtered through the difficulty of being human. But still very much divine.

hospitality: Catherine Dart

Potluck Lunch after the service

Sunday, February 25, 11:30 AM

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