At First Parish in Lincoln, outreach and social action efforts are coordinated by the ministers and the Outreach Committee:
The 2023-24 Outreach Committee team: Ralph Smith (chair), Larry Buell, Doug Crosby, Becca Fasciano, Heather Ring, and Jennifer Saffran.
The Outreach Committee exists:
- to research, donate to and partner with outside organizations that serve the needy and promote social and environmental justice
- to administer the annual Jean Wood Preston Endowment grants
- to sponsor congregation-wide activities and events to promote peace and justice
- to oversee the formation and sustainability of Faith in Action groups within the church
First Parish in Lincoln has a long history of charitable giving to support organizations that carry on the work of our Call to Ministry. Each year the Outreach Committee selects organizations representing a wide range of social concerns from local to international. In addition, our Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter offerings are dedicated to aid victims of natural disasters, violence, poverty or injustice.
