Unitarian Universalist


Upcoming Events

Puppet Show - Free for All Ages!

"Can Cupid’s Arrow Change A Bully?"

Saturday, February 3, 10 am

Has your child ever been bullied? (Or perhaps is the bully at times?) Newton and Simon can relate. They are bullied by Holly and try to figure out what they can do to stop the bullying without engaging in meanness themselves. Meanwhile, we get an insight into Holly and why she is acting like a bully to begin with. In the end, Newton uses his courage to send his bully a Valentine. With the help of Cupid's arrow and his own inner strength, Newton and Holly just might bring their relationship to a whole new level.


Because this show deals with the very important and timely subject of bullying, I hope children of ALL AGES are able to attend. Its message is applicable for EVERYONE.


Men's Breakfast

Saturday, February 3, 8 am

All men of the parish are cordially invited to attend. We will continue our tradition of hearty breakfasts with some healthy foods included.

The Winter Market will be held at Second Parish on the second and fourth Saturdays of January, February and March.  Come support your local vendors!


Issues of Faith (ioF)

Sunday, February 25, 4:30 to 5:30 pm

A program for students in Grades 8 to 10, this class will meet once per month and explore important spiritual questions in a variety of ways, considering how those present respond as well as how established religions respond. Participants are encouraged to bring a friend - or friends! - to this program where each meeting builds on the previous one.


Sunday School on the Run

Starting Sunday, March 11, 4:30 to 5:30 pm

A monthly program for busy families who would like their elementary school age children to have some religious education.  Our goals are to present a fun and inspirational program that includes an introduction to the following:


  • What is a church and what does it do?
  • Character Education taught through the study of values.  For these spring classes the values will be Forgiveness, Gratitude, Courage, and Commitment.
  • Famous stories from a variety of religions including the Hebrew Bible and the Christian Bible taught as part of Western Civilization.

Worship Services

February 4 - The Uses of Groundhog Day

Bill Murray’s hit movie has been entertaining viewers for a quarter of a century. It’s more than just a romantic comedy, though, and offers astonishing theological, philosophical, and scientific insights that can make a difference to us right now.


February 11 - Naomi and Ruth, Facebook Friends?

 A mother-in-law and daughter-in-law best friends? These two were, and the depth of their friendship was astonishing. This sermon will look at how technology may have altered the meaning of the word “friend,” but cannot diminish the essential love in the word.


February 18 - Establishing a National Character

The “Father of our Country” has proved elusive to those trying to pinpoint his religious beliefs. Yet from the beginning of his presidency, he was concerned with the role religion should play in both government and the development of a good citizen. In honor of the Presidents’ Day holiday, this sermon will explore what Washington valued in national character.


February 25 - Guest Minister: Rev Dick Fewkes

Minister Emeritus of First Parish in Norwell, where he served from 1969 - 2000, Rev. Fewkes has written prayers and responsive readings that appear on the UUA website and have been published in our hymnal. We are delighted to have him return to Second Parish, where he served as a guest minister last year



Meet Our Minister,
Rev. Stephanie Shute Kelsch u
