Volunteers Needed! October Parking Fundraiser 
Click here to volunteer! 
The church's biggest fundraiser of the year is the Annual October Parking Fundraiser and it continues through Halloween night! 
The premise is simple: church volunteers help to sell park spots in the back church parking lot and front circle. Each shift will be run by either Helen Jacoby or Mary Collari (or another church member), but we do need additional volunteers to help hold signs, collect money, and organize the cars as they come in. Shifts are generally two hours. 
Costumes are welcome and encouraged but not required!
We hope you can spare a little time this special Salem Holiday Season to help support First Church! Please sign up online by going to the First Church website, in the weekly e-Herald or with Mary on Sundays!

Family Fun Night Halloween Party
Friday, October 19, 6:00pm

Social Justice & Outreach Sunday
Sunday, October 21

Join us Sunday, October 21st as we share our expression of UU Principle #1 - We affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person.  Yes, we do!  We do this by offering justice, equity and compassion to each other and to those in our community (Principle #2).  Our service and fellowship hour will celebrate how we are making a difference today and offer an invitation to what we might do in the future to continue to affect positive change.  Representatives from a few of the social service agencies we support will be present at fellowship hour. Come, share, and learn over some fair trade coffee and delicious treats!
