Adult Education


Have you ever taken the time to create a Sacred Vision Board  (often referred to as a soul collage). The beginning of the year offers a great opportunity to delve into this creative journey. Winter offers us a time to go within and do some spiritual soul searching.

Starting January 17th, Kathy Cronin will be offering a Sacred Vision Board class for adults, for five weeks on Tuesday evenings from 7:00-8:30 p.m. in the Window Room at the Parish House. The class is limited to 8. Our time together will include music, poetry, art, an occasional inspiring TED talk, and sharing.  You do not have to be an artist but rather see yourself as an artist creating your future.  To sign up email

Church School

The purpose of the Church School is to provide a religious home and learning environment for the children of The First Parish.  We seek to nurture their religious growth and to help them learn about themselves and their place in the world as religious persons.  Our curriculum familiarizes the children with Judeo-Christian teachings and with the liberal religious traditions here at The First Parish. We also emphasize respect for the many varieties of religious experience and practice throughout the world.  In our sanctuary and in Children’s Chapel, children learn the language of worship, are invited to ponder the mysteries of creation, life and death, and to explore images of God.  Working together on service and social outreach projects, our young people have occasion to reflect on ethical concerns and to strengthen personal values.  During the year of learning, worshipping, working and celebrating together, we form a youthful religious community that is a vital part of the larger community of The First Parish.
