Welcome to the Religious Education program at First Parish Church of Beverly. Our historic Sunday school has a long tradition of offering children and youth a safe and caring environment in which to grow spiritually while exploring the rich heritage of western religions and UU traditions that form the basis of our faith. As the director of Religious Education, it is my responsibility and joy to coordinate our church school program as well as to assist and offer support to parents, teachers, the Religious Education Committee and our minister, Rev. Kelly Weisman Asprooth-Jackson.

Our core religious education program is offered on Sunday mornings from 10:00-11:15 a.m., from early September through the second week of June. In addition to Sunday morning classes, we offer a middle school Our Whole Lives (OWL) class and a Coming of Age class for high school students.

If you would like to chat with me about our Religious Education program, please feel to email me or reach me by phone at 978-509-1825. I look forward to welcoming you into our church family.
