Theme-Based Ministry

Themes for the 2023-2024 Congregational Year

Each spring, lay leadership and First Parish staff members carefully consider the next year’s calendar and events, and then brainstorm monthly ministry themes. We have selected ten ministry themes for the 2023-2024 congregational year:

  • September (Welcome)
  • October (Covenant)
  • November (Inheritance)
  • December (Love)
  • January (Generosity & Service)
  • February (Justice & Equity)
  • March (Transformation)
  • April (Wonder)
  • May (Pluralism)
  • June (Interdependence)

Our Sunday services, lifespan religious exploration program, and Small Groups will weave these themes into worship, events, and activities at First Parish. Many thanks to lay leaders from Worship, Small Groups, Music, and RE who helped contribute these themes!
