It's Our birthday Year!
Your 375th committee has many events planned.
FPNUU FAMILY PHOTO: Here, at First Parish, we are about to close out this part of our exciting 375th birthday celebration year. Keeping with that celebration we would like to get a picture of our entire congregation together during our service on Sunday, June 18. That Sunday is an Outreach Sunday, and our CHALICE Social Justice Committee on LGBTQ Issues will be involved in the service. We will be having speakers from SShAGLY (South Shore Alliance of Gay and Lesbian Youth).
What better way to show support for:
1) Our beautiful and beloved church here at First Parish of Norwell. This picture will proudly stand next to our other group pictures from our 1992 (350th), 1967 (325th) and 1942 (300th) birthday years!
2) Our church's commitment to being a "Welcoming Congregation" and "Standing on The Side of Love."
We need your participation in this! Wear either red, orange, yellow, green, blue or purple (shirts, blouses or sweaters). Varying shades of these colors are OK too. Wear your 375th FPNUU birthday shirt if you wish (the gray ones are ok, we'll all blend in). Families don't have to wear all the same color, but they could if they want to!
We know it’s the last Sunday of the church calendar, and it's Father's Day, and it's our "End of Year Picnic"… but let's also add "…and it's the Sunday we took our picture for our 375th Celebration!"See our 375th Anniversary page!
Friday, June 9 is our monthly Game Night Potluck where you bring your favorite food and games to share with your First Parish community. The event runs from 5:30 to 7:30, but some folks stay even longer, so don’t hesitate to come over and bring some friends too!
Join us for lots of food, fun and time to gather as our whole community. The RE program (and many other friends and helpers) will provide tons of great sandwiches, salads and treats for all ages, so make sure to stay after church, and bring a friend too! If you’d like to help with setup, or make something to bring, talk with Elizabeth Robey or myself.
