On Sunday, January 10,  John Schneider of the Next Steps held a forum so the congregation could  learn more about opportunities to help  with the planning for upcoming campaign for accessibility improvements to First Parish.  The Next Steps Task Force will be disbanding, and we will be transitioning to 3 separate task forces to supporting the campaign (three task forces with room for YOU!). 

Preliminary Capital Campaign Slides

 As you know, we held a special congregational meeting on November 8 to vote on the article "To vote to authorize the Standing Committee to establish a capital campaign with a goal of $500,000 to improve the church's accessibility." The final result of the vote, including seven ballots that were mailed to First Parish and counted after the special meeting, was 95 yes and 7 no.

We would like to thank everyone who participated and we look forward to working together to make First Parish more accessible. Please contact the Standing Committee if you would like to serve on either the capital campaign task force or the accessibility design task force--or if you have any questions. You may contact the Standing Committee by:

  • Emailing the committee (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)
