What may I submit for publication in First Parish communications?

The MHN, Sunday News and FP Announce are reserved for events at First Parish, events sponsored by First Parish or something that falls under a staff member or First Parish Committee or Group. We hold to this policy, but if you feel your event deserves special consideration or are not sure whether your announcement fits in this guideline, please contact the appropriate staff member for clarification before you submit your message. If your submission does not fall within this guideline, the church office would be glad to print your write-up for the First Parish bulletin board. Please email or drop off a printable final form to the church office. We are glad to help as best we can.
