Introduction to Unitarian Universalism

If you are new to First Parish, we’d like to invite you to participate in our Introduction to UU  sessions.  These overviews, offered on a rolling basis to newcomers, are part of an  exploratory process, providing an opportunity to share in dialog with our Minister and to get to know others new to the First Parish community.  You will discover options for finding community, spiritual growth and service within First Parish.
