Welcome, Rejoice & Come In

Welcome to First Parish Church! Whether  a guest, friend or member, you are warmly invited to step into our freshly-painted historic building in the center of Beverly. You will find a congregation rejoicing in a diversity of personal spiritual journeys, an outstanding music program, and a nurturing environment for all lifestyles. We seek to lift each others’ spirits through a strong sense of community, caring fellowship, rich educational opportunities for all ages, as well as service outreach.  Come and see what First Parish has to offer. We look forward to seeing you this Sunday!

Wayside Quotes

We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.
- Martin Luther King

It is impossible to struggle for civil rights, equal rights for blacks, without including whites. Because equal rights, fair play, justice, are all like the air: we all have it, or none of us has it. That is the truth of it.
- Maya Angelou

If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude.
- Maya Angelou
