Investing in Vibrant Community

First Parish is entirely self-supporting and over 70% of that support is contributions from our members.

Our spire is a beacon in the center of Arlington.
  • Energy emanates from every corner of our meetinghouse to our members and the wider community.
  • Our vibrant and welcoming activities have led to over 8% growth at worship this year.
  • Investing in First Parish upholds our values and sustains our spiritual home.
  • Please join our annual pledge drive to support our vibrant community!

  • “Being a member gives me spiritual guidance, a family of caring friends, opportunities to give back, and engagement in meaningful social justice work”
  • “I love that our building is used by so many community groups – dances, music, movies, meetings, events”
  • “I’m thankful for the deep companionship and support from Lay Ministry”
  • We can be very proud of the Sunday evening youth group – SUCH a needed place for youth to explore identity/beliefs – and support each other”

First Parish is self funding:  Your pledges account for almost three quarters of the budget

that we need to pay our staff and all the bills,

which translates to all that makes us thrive.
