“Racial Justice is Justice for All”

Led by Rev. Rahssan Hall

The Social Justice Committee will host the service next Sunday (April 29) when our guest preacher will be the Reverend Rahsaan Hall of the African Methodist Episcopal Church. Reverend Hall is the Director of the Mass ACLU’s Racial Justice Program. He will preach on the topic of “Racial Justice Is Justice For All”. In a nation with a history of racial oppression — and in the face of persistent injustice — we are charged to pursue racial justice.” 

168th Annual Summer Fair

Save the Date!!! 

Saturday June 16th-8:30am to 2pm

 

Held on the front lawn of First Parish Church, the Summer Fair is a pop-up tent extravaganza featuring an incredibly eclectic collection of donated items sold to ultimately support our vibrant church community and year long activities. Numerous and generous donations of books, jewelry, collectibles, plants, toys, white elephant treasures, sports equipment, household items, and furniture, donated from both church members as well as caring people in our surrounding communities bring treasure hunters from all over the South Shore.

The Auction is a highlight of the Fair, where one can purchase fine furniture and other large items at great prices.   You will also find handcrafted treasures and edible treats made by our members.

Attending the fair is fun for young and old alike, and the dollars spent help to fund the programs and activities that make First Parish Church the vibrant and educational community it is.

Come join us. All are welcome!

After an extensive search process, the First Parish Search Committee and the FPC Board are thrilled to introduce you to our new Assistant Minister of Community Life and Learning, Alix Klingenberg!
Alix's Bio-
I grew up in central Illinois and was lucky to be raised as a member of the Unitarian Universalist church of Bloomington Normal. As a young person in our tradition I was very active in youth group, cons, camps, and worship life. But like so many raised UU’s, I found myself drifting away from church during college. After graduating with a degree in visual art from Oberlin College, I spent twelve years as an artist and wedding photographer, creating and running a successful business from the ground up.

When I returned to the UU fold as a young adult, I became a youth advisor at Unity Temple in Oak Park. After three years there, I began a Wednesday night small group worship that I called “Campfire Ministry” to address some of the emotional and spiritual needs that weren’t being met during our large group meetings. It was through this group and through my education at Meadville Lombard that I (re)discovered my passion for ministry and faith formation. I spend a lot of time thinking about how we can serve all ages in worship and in faith formation and I am excited and thrilled to continue this journey with the Duxbury congregation!

I earned my Master in Divinity from Meadville Lombard and was recently welcomed into Preliminary Fellowship by the UUA. I have spent the past two years living in San Diego, working first as the Intern Minister at the First UU church of San Diego and then as a Chaplain with Sharp Home Health. I will be bringing my husband of 10 years, John, our three year old son, Quillen, and 2 black cats with me to Massachusetts.

As a spiritual leader, I am committed to the values of empathy, compassion, social engagement, and honesty and strive to put these at the center of my ministry. I try to bring a creative spirit to all that I do, and I cannot wait to see what we can create together!
