Volunteering is a wonderful way to meet people and get involved in the community. Some of the most common ways to volunteer are below. Please indicate your interest in volunteering by completing the Volunteer Form.
A team of 4-6 volunteers typically hosts Social Hour, and everyone is encouraged to take a turn or two each year. This involves setting up Parish Hall, making the coffee, setting out the food and drinks, and cleaning up afterwards. Yes, it involves some work, but it’s also fun, a great way to meet people, and a great service to the community. Indicate your interest on the Volunteer Form or contact the First Parish office.
Many people in the parish volunteer to occasionally help out those in need — whether it be for meals during sickness, rides to medical appointments, or just helping out with the odd task or errand. Indicate your interest on the Volunteer Form or contact Buffy Duhig to get your name on the list of Caring Crew volunteers.
Although our RE program is a parent cooperative, non-parents are also encouraged to get involved. Although teaching RE is a wonderful way to participate in the education and nuturing of our youth, and a great way to meet the children, it is not the only way to help. Other volunteer opportunities might include leading a three-week Neighboring Faiths segment to our 6th graders, serving as a mentor for Coming of Age, reading to the children in class. We would love for you to suggest your own unique talent that might help our youth. Please indicate your interest on the Volunteer Form or contact Mark LaPointe, our RE director.
