Excitement, Warmth, and Commitment
First Parish is a buoyant, vibrant community of more than 400 members and a youth group of more than 80 youth. We are straight and LBTGQ. We are single. We are coupled. We are parents and little ones. Whoever you are, you are welcome!
We love music and have a 40-member choir and many musicians to show for it. We care about living green and responsibly and reaching across race and class.
In the center of Arlington, we have been around since the founding of the town. We have worshipped in five buildings on this site, today’s built after a fire in 1975. Through the generations we have stood for progressive reform.
We are a religious people who grapple with what it is to live and die, and make wise and good choices in our days. We know that living spiritually and intentionally makes for a fuller life and a better world.
Highlights and Upcoming Events
Read to the congregation on Sunday, April 20
On every Easter Unitarians in Transylvania celebrate not the resurrection of Jesus, but the eternal life that is beyond death. For us, the teachings of Jesus are a role model that everyone should follow in order to become a better person. We believe that the Kingdom of God starts in our personal lives, and through our deeds and actions. ► Please follow this link to read the rest of Zoli's Easter Message.
