Adult Learning

The Adult Programs Committee plans various adult learning opportunities throughout the church year. Read on to learn about our upcoming events and ongoing programs. Contact us at with any questions or suggestions!

Racial Justice Advocates

Over the course of the last year, members of First Parish have felt the need for ongoing dialogue around the problem of racism and how it shows up in our congregation, community, and larger society. The Adult Programs Committee has formed the Racial Justice Advocates to facilitate these self-reflective and educational conversations, which we hope will be resources for individual and communal growth.

Adult Learning Courses

First Parish offers a selection of courses for adults throughout the church year. These courses are open to the public and feature specialists in their fields as instructors. An FPL Lecture Series may range from two to six sessions and may focus on developing skills or exploring ideas.
