Committees at First Parish are how our volunteer-run organization manages everything thing from policy decisions to changing the light bulbs in the sanctuary (a big challenge given the ceiling height). While a few require you to be a member to join, most are open to everyone and tend to meet monthly.
Joining a committee is a great way to become fully involved in life at First Parish. Contact the committees directly or contact the Leadership Development Committee who can give you more guidance on what each one does and the level of commitment required.
The committees below are some of our larger committees that organize and run major programs, address both governance (from policy to property), and support the Sunday service and spiritual and ministerial mission, such as pastoral care, worship, and discernment. Many other committees and groups can be found on the Seeking Community and Volunteering and Helping Out pages.
