At the Heart of Church and Community.

At First Parish, faith comes neither pre-digested nor neatly packaged.

We are an inquisitive community, exploring our faith in God, Jesus Christ, and The Holy Spirit. 

We are deeply committed to doing good work in this world: social justice, normalizing mental health, and cultivating true connection in our digital world.

Everyone is welcome - no matter your background or beliefs.


We are a part of the Maine Conference of the United Church of Christ and the national United Church of Christ.


Our parish is Open and Affirming.


Our Way of Being

First Parish strives to blend beloved Christian traditions with contemporary interpretations.


We blur the lines between sacred and secular, offering opportunities to explore spirituality in a variety of ways that meet people where they are. 


Practicing the Way of Love

Love is at the core of who we are, what we believe, and how we act.


In a world where hate and division are commonplace, First Parish chooses to follow Jesus in the way of love.
