First Parish Plymouth Unitarian Universalist Church
Freedom of belief is foundation to Unitarian Universalism. We affirm the worth of all human beings and the integrity of individual thought and action. As a liberal religious community, we share the quest for a practical religion based on deed, not creed.
We welcome all who would join with us in the spirit of love and peace. We are a non-creedal church stressing love, service and religious freedom..
Our office can be reached at 508-747-1606
Join us on Sundays at 10:00 for worship.
After church please join us for coffee, fellowship, and snacks in Kendall Hall.
Office hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm.
October 2 Union Service Rev. Ed Hardy
Our Annual “Union Worship” with Duxbury and Kingston will be in Kingston. This year, the emphasis will be on our individual Church Histories and how they are lived out today. The children will be entertained and sing alone with Roger Tincknell. Tincknell is well known in New England and has performed at many UU churches. Those with an inclination are asked to bring something for the coffee hour after the service.

October 16 Joseph Tuckerman Rev. Ed Hardy
Not a very good student at Harvard Divinity School—he just cruised. He didn’t like being a scholar; he wanted to learn from life, from experience. He wanted to live like Jesus. How did he do that?
October 23 What are your core values? Rev. Ed Hardy
Do you have a core value that you have held all your life? Or have your core values changed with circumstance? What is core value now? What are your three Core Values now? How do they conflict? How do they support each other?
October 30 What is All Hallow’s Eve? Rev. Ed Hardy
How do we celebrate it? Do we celebrate the dead? Do we celebrate the Saints? Do we know any Saints? The Separatists called themselves Saints.
