It's Our birthday Year!
See our 375th Anniversary page for more details!
Your 375th committee has many events planned.
What is a “cottage meeting?” It’s simply an open invitation for all to gather in a small group session. The Parish Committee, along with a few other key church committees, would like to solicit your feedback regarding crucial topics and issues relating to FPN. We are planning to hold four of these meetings over the next couple of months, asking the same questions at each one, so there is no need to attend more than one of these sessions. Anticipated time for each meeting would run up to one hour.
We still have three more cottage meetings slated for discussing growth, financial contributions and our covenant of right relations on Wednesday, February 15, Sunday, February 26, and Friday, March 10. Please plan to attend one as we want to hear as many voices as possible on these topics. We’re starting to gear up for our annual pledge drive and will have Stewardship Sunday on March 12, followed by Commitment Sunday and lunch on March 19.
Next scheduled meeting: Tuesday, February 21 at 7:00 pm in the Church Office Would you like to find out some of the reasons behind gun violence and how we as a UU community can help PREVENT GUN VIOLENCE? Join our CHALICE SJC on Preventing Gun Violence which meets the third Tuesday of every month at 7:00 pm. We meet for an hour or so and try to find common ground on this very serious issue. We started off the year by trying to education ourselves on what our current Massachusetts gun laws are and to encourage stricter enforcement of those laws. We are looking for ideas from you. If you are interested, please sign up on the rolling bulletin boards in the Parish Hall or let Rev. Lise, Deane Howard or Mary Nickerson know.
On Sunday afternoon, March 12 at 3 pm, we will be hosting Fred Small at First Parish of Norwell to sing songs rallying us to protect our environment at our “Union Sunday Celebration.” Our choirs will still sing together, as will all of us with Fred Small, and we’ll have an opportunity for conversation and snacks afterwards. I’ve never heard Rev. Small perform, but the few people in our congregation that I’ve mentioned this event to seem very delighted. So, mark your calendars, Sunday, March 12 at 3 pm!
