Families with Children

Music performance opportunities. Do children in your family play instruments? Or do you play? First Parish offers a standing invitation to play during worship in a supportive, encouraging atmosphere. Please speak with Rev. MacDonald or Music Committee Chair Virginia Champi to learn more.

We offer Sunday school for children but it is not currently operational due to lack of students.  http://firstparishofnewbury.org/ministries/sunday-school-for-kids/

Our New Eden Organic garden shares provide unique opportunities for families to garden together sustainably with other community gardeners.  http://firstparishofnewbury.org/new-eden-gardens/

The church welcomes volunteers to assist with our food pantry.  This provides opportunities for teenagers earning community service credits as well as parents.
