Jars of spring water are not enough anymore.
Take us down to the river.
First Parish Church of Groton is a founder of the Groton Community Dinners program.
We are a community of adults, youth, and children seeking to deepen spiritually, to take care of one another, and to be a blessing to the world.
We are a school for compassion, gratitude, and generosity.
These are some of the things we care about at First Parish Church: We value spiritual depth, spiritual growth, and spiritual maturity. We value service to others, especially to those outside the walls of the church and to those in need. We value generosity and view increasing generosity as part of the spiritual life. We value being a “permission granting” church. By this we mean saying yes to new ideas and possibilities which are consistent with and further the mission and values of the church. We value taking care of each other. We will be asked to take care of the members and friends of our community who are in need. We will receive care when we are in need.
As a member congregation of the Unitarian Universalist Association, we affirm and promote the principles of the UUA. As a Welcoming Congregation, we actively welcome gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people as full participants in the life of the church.
In other words, our congregation and our Unitarian Universalist faith are engaging, participatory, and inclusive. All are welcome at this table. Join us!
