Our Congregational Life Committee provides opportunities for members to get to know each other better, to support one another in times of need, to reach out to newcomers, and to become involved in the life of the church.
Social Justice Action
Our Social Justice Action Committee organizes and coordinates the active involvement of the Congregation and its members in local, district, national, and international projects for peace, compassion, and social justice. Check the Event Calendar for upcoming meetings and events.
Our Congregation supports the Standing on the Side of Love campaign, a public advocacy campaign of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA). The movement uses community activism, social networking, and media outreach to counter fear and harness love’s power to challenge exclusion, oppression, and violence based on sexual orientation, gender identity, immigration status, race, religion, or any other identity.
Our congregation contributes annually to the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee's (UUSC) Guest at Your Table campaign, an annual fundraiser to support national and world social justice. Our congregation has earned the designation of a “Creating Justice Community.”
Our congregation has been a UUA designated Welcoming Congregation since 2006. We are proud to offer a welcoming and safe home for our gay, bisexual, lesbian and transgender community and families.
UFPC supports our local community by hosting the Prison Book Program, conducting annual collection drives for Interfaith Social Services, participating in the City of Quincy Prayer Breakfast, and responding to timely calls for assistance and witness in our city and the South Shore.
We support the Black Lives Matter movement, locally and nationally. Our members have hosted BLM vigils in Quincy Center and have attended BLM rallies around the country.
United First Parish Church was a founding member in 1996 of the Greater Boston Interfaith Organization (GBIO). Members of our congregation have worked on projects to improve affordable housing, and nursing home and health care reform.
