First Parish will miss Rev. Nancy

(Continued)

As a lover of music, she encouraged a revered group of a cappella singers knows as Sacred Harp to come to First Parish every month for the enjoyment of all. She also organized a complete music series to which the community was invited.

At the time of the 375th birthday of the town and the church, she organized and led a three-day celebration in the cemetery, the Upper Green and the church, keeping each day unique to the era and wars of the era.

Rev. Nancy conducted annual services on Firemen’s Sunday, marching from the fire station to the cemetery where current firefighters as well as those gone on or before were honored in music and worship.

Rev. Nancy’s multiple talents cannot be adequately enumerated. Her visionary leadership and the sharing of her gifts are as unique as her compassionate self. We look forward to her next creative venture as she continues to make a positive impact in the community.
