The current First Parish in Lincoln resulted from a 1942 merger of Lincoln’s Congregational and Unitarian churches. That merger is reflected in Christian and Humanist elements of our Sunday services, and also in our intent to be a “big tent” spiritual home for persons of all faith backgrounds.
Our historic roots are quite visible each Sunday as the congregation recites a Covenant and a Call to Ministry.
First Parish’s statement of Values, Mission, and Vision complements and elaborates on the core concepts of the Covenant and Call to Ministry in a way that reflects our big spiritual tent. This statement, which describes what FPL tries to do and hopes to be, follows below.
