We're organizing a series of Potlucks at First Parish to give people an opportunity to get to know each other in a relaxed setting. Everyone is welcome. Please bring a dish to share (anything is fine -- it's truly "pot luck"). Our next potluck is March 26 (please note that the previously announced January 29 date has been cancelled). All potlucks will be held from 11:45 am to 1:00 pm in the Parlor after Sunday Service. Drop-ins welcome! If you have any questions, please contact Sarah Trilling and Julius Pereli at potlucks @


First Parish Arlington Stands with Muslims, Refugees, Immigrants

Unitarian Universalists affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person. We therefore stand against any effort to exclude, stigmatize, or ban any group of people.

Hundreds of people recently came to a candlelight vigil on our lawn to protest the executive order banning refugees and travelers from seven Muslim-majority countries.  Read more at Wicked Local Arlington.
