Faith in Action Groups

FPL’s Faith in Action groups (FIATS) provide opportunities to serve and promote justice. To volunteer, or for more information, contact Outreach Committee Chair Larry Buell at


The Congregational Garden brings FPL members together to create a nurturing space for growing both nutritious food and connections to one another and the living earth. Evolving organically, the garden is shaped by the lay of the land and the hands of those pitching in. Everyone is welcome to help with the garden, conceived to bring forth growing spaces for individuals and the community.


For more than a decade, the Family Furnishers have been supplying household goods to needy families moving into homes in Dorchester and Roxbury.


FPL’s newest and largest FIAT is a group of two dozen members deeply concerned about the climate crisis and dedicated to doing something about it. Its motto encapsulates its mission: Green Church, Green Lives, Green World. In each area FPL Green develops specific initiatives carried out by the group. Recent achievements include installing solar panels on the Parish House and promoting programs for FPL members to switch to electric vehicles and renewable wind power. FPL Green meets the second Tuesday of each month at 7:30 pm in the Stearns Room. Contact Tom Walker (


FPL’s oldest continuing Faith in Action group prepare and serve two Friday night meals each church year for the 200 homeless and indigent guests of Arlington Street Church in downtown Boston.
