Welcome Back!

Sadly, summer is winding down, but the good news is that the first Sunday service of the new church year is coming soon on September 8th. Like Opening Day at Fenway, there will be excitement in the air as you remember why FP is such a special place. It’s a chance to renew your friendships and your connection with our vibrant faith community. We can’t wait to see you! Love and peace, The FP Worship Committee

First Parish Milton

The office is buzzing with energy, lots to do before the first day of the formal church year. While you are settling back into a routine please take a moment to check out the church website. We have a great “Welcome Back” video put together by our own Darren Durlach and soon you will receive in the mail a welcome back post card from the worship committee.

This is also a great time to inform the office of any personal changes (phone number, address, email etc.). Don’t forget to register your child(ren) for RE and please take a minute to volunteer and sign up for ushering, hosting social hour, donating flowers, and chalice lighting.

We are very excited for the formal church year to begin and look forward to seeing everyone on September 8th.

And don’t forget Pancake Breakfast!!

Our traditional welcome back breakfast served by our youth will take place
September 8th at 9am
