Services are held on Sundays at 10:30 a.m. at 330 First Parish Road in Scituate MA. Everyone is welcome. The Rev. Pamela Barz is our minister. Join us—for reflection, music, and fellowship (and our thriving youth program)!
Sunday June 19  Always Trust the Cape!
For Fathers’ Day, a celebration of super-heroes, Pamela Barz preaching.
Sunday June 26  Worship, Work, and Picnic!
A festive morning for our last Sunday morning worship service of the year before we switch over to our summer worship schedule. We begin at our usual time of 10:30 a.m. with a brief worship service for all ages, led by Pamela Barz and guitarist Peter Mundt, followed by a cleanup of the front yard, and closing with a hot dog cookout sponsored by the SciCohRock Youth Group to raise money for those members who are attending the Youth Empowerment and Spirituality (YES) Conference on Star Island in August.
Summer Worship:  Dinner Church
Wednesdays, July 6 – August 31 at 6:30 p.m.
In July and August, we will again move our worship time from Sunday mornings to a weekday evening. This year, we will use a 'dinner church' format in which children, youth, and adults will gather around the table to sing, give thanks, share joys and sorrows, and to hear and reflect on a wisdom tale.

Baskets from Zimbabwe
First Parish member Jenn Mackey has connected us with the Zienzele Foundation. The organization supports women who are caring for AIDS orphans; their handmade baskets are sold in the US to provide funding for school for the children. The baskets range in size and shape and are priced from $10-$60. Jenn will show them upon request and at our church fairs.

Our Church

First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church of Scituate MA is a vibrant, inclusive community of faith. We are a non-creedal church stressing love, service, and religious freedom. Grounded in our Unitarian Universalist principles and purposes, we affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person, and we support each individual's unique search for truth and meaning.

We welcome you, wherever you are in your search for deeper meaning, to join us in exploring “the big questions” and cultivating ways to live the answers amidst today’s modern challenges. Our congregation seeks ways to build community, guide our children, deepen spiritually, and to make a positive difference in the world. We celebrate the interconnectedness of all things. Join us for sermons, service, or celebrations!
Our coffeehouse events will feed your body and soul! Check Facebook for videos and reviews of our standing-room-only event April 9 that supported Scituate Friends of Music, and for news about upcoming events.
