This Sunday we continue our theme of vocation: where heart, passion and faith meet. We will hear from our own Linda Percy, about her vocation of serving in Thrifty Threads, United Parish’s clothing thrift store.

Many of us know Thrifty Threads exists in our building. Many of us are proud of it. We know it provides affordable clothing, often to people in need.

Thrifty Threads

Thrifty Threads, Brookline’s only thrift store, is located inside United Parish and is fully operated by volunteers.  Thrifty Threads has been open and serving the community for 17 years. The shop is not only a source of income for this church, but is an important ministry serving Brookline and surrounding communities with good quality clothing at very low prices.


Book Group - Join the Conversation

We are reading America's Original Sin: Racism, White Privilege, and the Bridge to a New America by Jim Wallis.  After reading and discussing The New Jim Crow, this past autumn, America's Original Sin continues to engage the same principals, but with a more theological approach.  The Discussion Group for America's Original Sin will meet Thursday, July 28 @ 6:30pm in the Parlor.  All are welcome.


The Adult Deepening Ministry Team invites you to join the Centering Prayer Group forming this summer. Centering prayer is a form of meditation in the Christian tradition using the breath and a sacred word to help center ourselves in God's Presence. It is a spiritual practice that we will learn about and practice together.  

United Parish seeks a part-time Assistant Director of Music who will be responsible for planning, directing, and administering the children’s and youth music ministry of the church in collaboration with the Minister of Music.

Our Stewardship Brochure is full of the thoughtful words of our members, about what United Parish means to us, how it helps us, supports us, what we give and receive here. It’s an inspiring testimonial about the power of a faith community.
