First Parish of Norwell
First Parish of Norwell is a liberal church in dialogue with the religious questions of the modern world, yet still honoring the best within our Judeo-Christian heritage. Recognizing no distinction of class, sex, nationality, race, age, or sexual orientation, ours is a Welcoming Church that stresses the need for community amidst the impersonality of the secular world. First Parish of Norwell is a member church in the Unitarian Universalist Association. First Parish of Norwell is a distinguished New England congregation serving the area including Norwell, Hanover, Marshfield, Hanson, Hingham, Scituate, Pembroke and other south shore towns for over 360 years.
Sunday Service 10 a.m.
March 9 - Union Sunday - Old Ship Church - 10:25 a.m.
The congregations of First Parish of Norwell, First Parish in Scituate, First Parish in Cohasset, Old Ship Church and Second Parish Church in Hingham celebrate our historic ties with a union service. There will be a special activity for the children. Old Ship Church is located at 107 Main Street (Route 228) in Hingham Square. Please note that there will be NO services in Norwell that day.
March 16 - Getting a Settled Minister
The Ministerial Settlement Representative, Laura Graham, Esq., will address the congregation on the process of calling a new settled minister.
March 23 - Gospel According to Pete Seeger
The service will celebrate the life and work of the Unitarian Universalist.
March 30 - The Maelstrom
Using Poe’s story of a whirlpool in northern Norway, I get to discuss our monthly theme of being vulnerable. I will discuss the concept using the analogy presented by the story.
April 6 - Breaking Bad
Since someone recently mentioned to me that I remind them of a character from the show, I decided to do a service on this successful T.V. series.
