The Roof Over Our Heads Fundraiser for First Church in Jamaica Plain

November 13 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

First Church Unitarian Universalist at 6 Eliot Street here in Jamaica Plain is celebrating its 250th anniversary as a church, and the start of its $1 million capital campaign, The Roof Over Our Heads: Preserving First Church for Our Community, to replace its roof and repay the loan for the recent repairs of its clock tower. First Church is not only a spiritual home for its congregation: it is a vibrant community center hosting numerous JP groups and organizations such as KidsArts after school program, Nehar Shalom, a Jewish congregation, and many other civic, dance, and performance groups. As a key element of the Monument Square Historic District and on the National Registry of Historic Places, First Church needs to adhere to specific historical renovation standards in its repairs. So far First Church has received grants for this work from the MA Historical Commission and the Henderson Foundation.

Please join us at our campaign kick-off and 250th anniversary celebration on Sunday, November 13, 12-1:30 pm, in the church hall. City Councilor Kendra Lara will be the special guest. To RSVP, please write to capitalcampagn@firstchurchjp.org. For more information about the campaign and how to contribute to it, go to https://firstchurchjp.org/2022-capital-campaign.
