We are a very active church with various events happening all the time. If you would like to know what is coming up please check out our Calendar.
Some of our annual events are as follows:
Fellowship Auction The auction is a new tradition at First Parish. Our members are encouraged to auction off homemade goods or events that are then auctioned off as a fundraiser for the church and used as way for our members to get to know each other better. Some of last years hits were homemade pies & breads, lunch on a sailboat, New England Revolution Tickets and a Sermon!
Providence Gay Men's Chorus We first had the PGMC here for a concert last year and the community fell in love. We are working on turning this into an annual event every spring.
Balloon Sunday Every spring we have a special service to welcome in the warmth & blissfulness of spring. This service is multi-generational and focuses on happiness. After all, what spreads happiness faster than leaving with a free balloon?
Blessing of the Animals At the end of the church year, which falls in Mid-June, we celebrate the beginning of summer by having our service outside with all of our pets and finish with a church potluck dinner.
Church Green Farmer's Market Every Sunday from the middle of July until the end of October we have a local Farmer's Market on the church lawn, with fresh produce & baked goods.
Liberty & Union Every October we team up with Old Colony Historical Society to honor Taunton's history and the church's role in sparking the American Revolution.
Forest of Light Every year we fill our front lawn with Christmas trees that are sponsored by community members & local businesses. We light these trees the same night as Taunton's annual Lights On! Celebration and are on display through the month of December.
