Summer service at Dane Street Beach

For many, “Religious Education” conjures images of children sitting in a Sunday School classroom. While First Parish does that (and if that’s what you’re looking for, visit the Sunday School page), we also believe in the importance of lifelong spiritual growth among a community of caring hearts, helping hands, and open minds. That’s why our religious education opportunities include not only our weekly Sunday School classes, but weekly evening classes for adults.

Our spirituality courses vary from season to season. You might find us studying sacred texts from Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Islamic, or Jewish faith traditions, or you might find us studying writings from some of our favorite Unitarian Universalist theologians–maybe even the musings of curious science fiction authors or thought-provoking artists. One thing is for sure: it won’t be boring! Come prepared to learn, to listen, to question, to grow, to challenge yourself, and to reflect.
