October 1, 2017 - Is Membership for Me?
An informational gathering for those who wish to explore what it means to be a member of First Parish Church Congregational. We will talk a little bit about the church and have the opportunity to share with each other our own life and faith experiences. This gathering will be held in front of the church after the service----about 11:15ish.
Anyone expressing interest in membership will be invited to join with other prospective members for two short informational meetings to learn more about Congregationalism as well as First Parish Church, its history and activities in the community. It is an opportunity to meet not only the minister but representatives of the various committees and governing organizations of the church and members of the Membership and Growth committee who will help you establish connections with other members.
People join our church through:
- Transfer of membership
- Statement of faith
The church welcomes into the membership any person who believes in the Lord Jesus Christ and who proposes to love God with all one's heart, mind, and strength, and to love one's neighbor as one's self. Members are expected to regularly attend services of this Church, to give conscientiously for its support and its charities, to share in its organized work and to extend its fellowship.
To learn more contact the church office at 978-526-7661 or firstname.lastname@example.org
You may also speak with any member or directly with the Minister.
