Our Pledge Drive Is Starting Soon

It’s that time again! We need a Pledge Drive as part of creating our proposed 2024-2025 Church budget for a Congregational vote in early June. As in past years, we will provide multiple ways to pledge: calling or emailing Alan Brooks, online pledge entry, responding to an email reminder, or responding to a phone call reminder. We will provide information on how to pledge in the next week or two. We want to complete the pledge drive by the end of March.

If you have any questions, please contact Alan Brooks at or 508-736-3030.

HOLIDAY GIFT DRIVE for Children in Foster Care

The holidays are just around the corner and we would like to get an idea how many kids our church will be able to sponsor this year in the gift drive. Each person/family who signs up sponsors a child, whose age, gender, or wish list will be available in November.

Please email Tracey Turner, if you would like to participate in this annual First Parish holiday tradition. 

Gifts will be due in by 12/14. The children are under the care of a long term Northborough Foster Family who works with the Department of Children and Families (DCF). DCF, in partnership with families and communities, works to keep children safe from abuse and neglect and toward establishing the permanency and well-being of children by providing supports and services to families at home when it is safe to do so.
