Wouldn't it be nice if we could keep at least some of our First Parish traditions this holiday season? Well guess what - we have a plan. The Standing Committee and COVID task force have given their blessing for our annual sale of Wreaths, Roping, Poinsettias and DONUTS! We are accepting orders until Sunday, November 29th with a pick-up date of Saturday, December 5th between 1 and 3 PM. For detailed information, and to place your order online, please go to https://fpchelmsford.breezechms.com/form/e152d3.
The donuts will be made and packaged in a COVID-safe environment and ordering and pick-up of all items will be contact-less. There is a minimum number of orders we need to get for it to make sense to set up all the equipment. If we do not meet that quota the donuts will not be available this time around. So please indulge yourself and your friends and family - and remember, you don't have to eat your donuts all at once, they freeze quite nicely!
Your purchases will support the work we do in the world in addition to bringing us some of the beauty and magic we treasure this time of year. Thank you for your participation!Healing ConversationsIn keeping with the commitment in our First Parish covenant to care and be present to one another in our joys and sorrows, Rev. Ellen and the Pastoral Care Team offer this grief and loss group on the second and fourth Mondays of the month for virtual check-ins via Zoom to nurture and hold a sacred space to share stories, experiences, and emotions around love, loss and grief in a spirit of mutual care and deep listening. This is an ongoing group that folks in our First Parish community can join during the year, while maintaining it as a confidential and supportive space. The Zoom session will last only as long as needed for people to check in and get support if needed.
If you are interested on joining, please contact Rev. Ellen
