Serving Others

Building relationships, serving others, pursuing justice.

Advocacy at First Congregational

Back Bay Mission Shrimp Boil fundraiserFirst Congregational is a church of action, advocating for social justice on local, national and international levels. We see that social justice encompasses a broad range of issues, including education, hunger, shelter and access to services such as transportation and counseling.

We also further social justice every day by living as a welcoming community, opening our doors wide in the spirit of inclusiveness and acceptance, and engaging in a personal effort to make connections with others, sometimes extravagantly and sometimes in small, quiet ways that make a big difference. Often it is serving together that brings us together.

How We Serve

Offering Our Gifts and Talents

Whatever your gift may be—growing vegetables, carpentry, praying, knitting or musicianship—it is needed for our church truly to live out our calling to love and serve others as God has first loved us. If you have not already done so, please let First Congregational know how you are best suited to serve.
