Sunday 12/14 is Take the Elevator to Church Day!

Ever wonder what it like to take the elevator from the Vestry to the Sanctuary? On December 14 we’ll be asking for volunteers to take the elevator up (or down after the service) to experience vertical transportation the First Parish way. Part of a series of activities to help us experience our accessibility challenges, we’ll be hosting a talking circle after the service at 12:15 pm to reflect on the experience and ways to improve accessibility to our building. For more information, contact John Schneider

Standing Committee

The Standing Committee is the Church's governing board. The Standing Committee works to ensure the vitality of our community of faith. There are 10 members of the Standing Committee – nine voting members elected by the congregation and the minister, who is a non-voting member of the Committee. Standing Committee members serve a 3 year term.

The Standing Committee meets on the second Tuesday of the month at 7:00pm. Time is set aside at the beginning of every SC meeting as an open forum for members to bring forward any issues they would like to discuss.

The Standing Committee is responsible for the health and well being of First Parish. This includes maintaining communication among members and committees, managing Church property, and planning for the Church's short and long-term future. And of course members of the Standing Committee develop and manage the budget approved by the Congregation at the annual meeting.
The Human Resources Committee is a sub-committee of the Standing Committee.
