We Offer You a Heartfelt Welcome!

Are you "shopping" for a church? Are you searching for a community where you can seek your truth while holding on to your beliefs and traditions, and gather with like-minded folks in friendship and service?

Church in the Spring

We are ready to welcome you! We suggest you attend our services until you are comfortable with us. You don't have to be a member to attend worship at First Parish or join many of our activities. Please join us for worship services on Sundays at 10:30 and summer services at 9:30 am. We invite you to stay for Coffee Hour after church. We would like to get to know you and have you know us.

We are a small and growing congregation of members plus friends. We offer coffee hour after Sunday service. Church members and the Minister welcome newcomers and are happy to answer questions and provide more information. Review our frequently asked questions (FAQs) page.

Worship Time With Us

Sunday services are well attended given the size of the congregation. It is a time for gathering, with plenty of music, a sharing of joys and concerns, ending with us all in a circle holding hands. Children are with the congregation at the start of the service and are then “sung out” to their RE classes after a story or other focus in the service geared toward them. We prefer intellectually stimulating sermons that include a little humor along with insight into spirituality or practical philosophy. We are not dogmatic and appreciate independent thinking but have a very strong sense of community.

This is a place that values music as an integral part of worship and as a way of making connections with each other. Our wonderful choir has high member participation and a talented and loved music director. Many members of the church are musicians and share their talents at church events and services.

Fellowship and a sense of community continues to be the top reason we gather, followed by intellectual stimulation, spiritual growth, our music program, the minister and our Unitarian Universalist beliefs. Coffee hour after the service is always well attended and a great place to make connections with each other.

The Facility

Our historic sanctuary is upstairs above our meeting hall, library, and parlor. This sanctuary is wheel chair accessible and we provide hearing devices for those who require them. Staff offices and kitchen are also on the first floor. On the second floor you will find a youth chapel and Religious Education rooms.

If you would like more information or have specific questions, please call email our Minister, at (207) 985-3700 or our Administrator will lead you in the right direction depending on your question. We know it can be a little intimidating to join or explore a new group, please let us make that transition comfortable and fun for you.
