If you’ve wanted to visit First Parish in Lincoln, this is the perfect day to do it. There will be members at the door to greet visitors and help them find seats. During the service, guests’ children are also invited to join our religious education programs (or the nursery, if toddler or preschool-aged). Following worship, children can plant a bulb out on the playground (or in the small downstairs classroom if it rains).
