Worship Schedule

June Ministry Theme - Blessing the Journey

Sunday, June 2, 2019: Challenge Sunday: Our Unitarian Universalist community has a long commitment to the journey youth undertake in learning to articulate what they have given their hearts to. The coming of age years include an active exploration of world religions, beginning with the Neighboring Faiths curriculum; faith-based sexuality education is offered next in the Our Whole Lives curriculum; and completing the spiritual inquiry offered in Challenge. The culmination of these Coming of Age years is Challenge Sunday – a multi-gen worship service in which the Challenge class presents their faith statement!

Sunday, June 9, 2019: Blessings on Our Journey: This church year we traveled together as a congregation, through good times and challenging ones, celebrations and sorrows. We join together in our sanctuary once more, to bless our journey together with songs, stories and sharing a meal. In our service we’ll formally introduce members of the Boston Sai Center, who rent our space each Sunday afternoon and also honor graduating high school seniors with our traditional “Bridging Ceremony.” We cap it all off with our annual BBQ and Strawberry Fest – please join us! Rev. Lisa preaching.

Sunday, June 16, 2019: Summer Services Begin at 10 am in Lyon Chapel: How does our Unitarian Universalist faith handle guilt and shame? What counsel is offered for those of us who carry these heavy emotions on our hearts? Please join Kristen and Elizabeth McIntire and Emily Cherry on June 16th as we explore answers to these questions.

Sunday, June 23, 2019 at 10 am: Join Jody Leader and Lily Marcelin for a Summer Solstice service in Lyon Chapel.

Sunday, June 30, 2019 at 10 am: Called to Accompaniment The First Parish Immigration Justice Committee and Patricia Montes of Centro Presente will offer a service focused on accompanying our neighbors who are navigating U.S. immigration policies that include family separation and ICE incarceration. We think of accompaniment as a spiritual, community-building undertaking of love and accountability where the ask is, in the words of the Beyond Network, to "fight for one another as family, because we are." Music by Robson Goulart.
