New to First Parish in Framingham? Welcome!
Welcome to a liberal church supporting a free and responsible search for truth and meaning, social justice, and respect for the interdependent web of all existence.
We need not think alike to love alike. Most of the members of First Parish in Framingham were not born Unitarian Universalists (UU). Ours is a chosen faith. We come from many faith traditions; and some from no religion at all. We come in search of answers to questions like these…
- How can I lead a deeper spiritual life?
- How can I be engaged with something beyond day to day, secular life?
- How can I be part of a community of meaning and purpose?
- How can I (with others) help change the world?
For those of you who are already Unitarian Universalists, we bid you warm welcome, and offer a place from which to continue exploring your spiritual path and living your social justice commitments.
Plan Your First Visit (Online)
During this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, and while we are adhering to CDC Guidelines, all Worship Services, seminars, meetings, special events and Covenant groups are meeting virtually on Zoom or outside.
Sunday morning Worship meets at 10:00 a.m. In-person services, when available, may have limited seating. There will always be a seat for visitors! The link for our streaming online service is: https://www.uuframingham.org/worship/live-stream-worship-service/
Parents, please note that the Worship service includes a “Time for All Ages” — stories focused for our children and youth.
After Worship services, there is a fun Coffee Hour that meets every Sunday on Zoom and congregants get a chance to be together virtually. Feel free to come to Coffee Hour every Sunday to get to know the committed people in this community. Newcomers will have the option of joining a breakout room with the Membership Coordinator so you can get your questions answered.
The link for the Zoom Coffee Hour is emailed out each week to those who have asked to be included. If you complete the new visitor form, you can ask to be contacted as well.
Keep an eye out on the home page of website for our events listings such as the Spiritual Book Group, Climate Action Team meetings, special youth activities like the stuffed animal sleepover.
Thank you for visiting and we hope to see you at the Worship service on Sunday or maybe in the Coffee Hour or at a meeting of one of the vibrant programs at First Parish in Framingham. Filling in the New Visitor Form and checking to receive theweekly newsletter will keep you informed of the wonderful work of this congregation.
