Feeding the Mind, Body, and Spirit

Women's Alliance Women’s Alliance

The Women’s Alliance of First Parish is a branch of the UU Women’s Federation, which is headquartered  in Boston. The Alliance meets the second Monday of each month at noon, from September through June for lunch, business and a program.
During the year, the Alliance sponsors the Treasure Shoppe at Pies-on-the Common, receptions for memorial services, luncheon speakers, the Holiday Boutique, and activities based on common interests. All women of the parish, members and friends are welcome to attend Alliance meetings and to participate in our events.

Wellspring Wednesday

This program meets on the second Wednesday of the month at 6 pm for a potluck dinner in the Huntley Room in the Parish House for fellowship. The dinner may also be followed by a program or film. All members, friends and visitors are welcome to participate.

Spanish Conversation Club

If you would like to speak Spanish with others, to keep in practice or for the love of the language, join us in the Servetus Room (downstairs in the Parish House) on the third Sunday of the month at 11:30 am.

Men’s Club
The First Parish Men’s Club has been meeting regularly since 1946 with the objective of helping First Parish men to know one another better. The Club holds about several meetings between September to May. Meetings consist of a social time, a catered dinner, and an interesting speaker, all at a nominal cost. Men's Club dinners are open to both men and women.

Dinner Discussion Group
Now in its twelth year, the highly popular Dinner Discussion Group attracts up to 25 people for a potluck dinner and discussion about a pre-determined topic. The group meets on the third or fourth Saturday of a month, at an individual’s home. It provides opportunity for socializing, sharing, and getting to know better other parishioners and friends.

Coffee and Muffins
The Coffee and Muffins Group is an open gathering of First Parish members, friends, and guests who meet regularly in the Huntley Room on Thurday mornings from 8:00 to 10:00.
The group is intentionally unstructured and informal with its sole purpose to provide an opportunity for attendees to get better acquainted and to discuss any topic that might be raised by anyone in the circle. There is no agenda and no sign-up required. People are invited to attend whenever they choose and may leave early if desired.
The group asks only for a voluntary donation for the coffee and muffins. Everyone is welcome to give it a try.

Coffee Hour
Coffee Hour is a natural extension of the worship service. It is the time when parishioners can informally gather each week for refreshments and conversation, in Scott Hall. Twice a month, the junior and senior youth groups host the refreshment table. Any donations given for the baked goods they provide benefit their annual project.

Newcomers are invited to visit the Newcomers Table for nametags and informational material, and to meet members of First Parish. All parishioners are urged to visit church committee tables or bulletin boards that provide information about their current programs and projects.

Special events, such as the Women’s Alliance Holiday Boutique or the Guatemalan Jewelry and Crafts Sale  also take place during Coffee Hour.
