You are welcome here! First Parish in Concord is a welcoming Unitarian Universalist congregation that seeks ways to deepen spiritually, build community, and make a positive difference in the world.
Our youngest children (0-4 years) play in a caring environment known as Little RE with time for making friends, reading stories, playing outdoors, and craft projects. Caregivers will be able to bring children to the Milldam Nursery School fifteen minutes before the Sunday service begins (9:45 a.m.).
This Fall we are offering Little OWL for Kindergarteners, 1st and 2nd graders on Sundays 10:00- 11:15 a.m.. Little OWL is an age-appropriate sexuality education program that embodies our UU values. The sessions explore important topics like bodies, safety, families, relationships, and babies.
Our 3rd to 5th grade group will learn about our UU Principles. Each Sunday will explore one of our Unitarian Universalist principles through stories, hands-on activities, and conversations. Our goal is to create a fun engaging environment for children to feel accepted and explore together.
We are excited to introduce Crossing Paths for our 6th to 8th graders! This is an updated multi-platform version of our beloved Neighboring Faiths program. We look forward to learning more about our identity as Unitarian Universalists while gaining appreciation for our sibling faiths.
What else are we looking forward to in 2022- 2023? Rock n’ Roll Bingo, Parents Night Out, comprehensive sexuality education for 5th graders and 8th graders, Coming of Age, and High School Youth Group.
If you have any questions about our program or community, please be in touch!
