Home Helping Out at First Parish


“Wherever you turn, you can find someone who needs you. Even if it is a little thing, do something for which there is no pay but the privilege of doing it.

Remember, you don't live in a world all of your own.” 

Albert Schweitzer


First Parish offers many opportunities to deepen our commitment to each other and the wider world by sharing our individual gifts and talents.  Much of what has made our community into a very special place is through broad participation of members and friends.If you would you like to lend a hand, check out these links for current opportunities where you can help out:
