Rev. Frieda Gillespie
Our interim minister
A few words from Reverend Gillespie:

Having had the privilege of being the Interim Minister at First Parish for a year now, I have enjoyed many things about this congregation: 
  • They are warm and welcoming.
  • They are devoted to the church and the work they do for the community of Berlin and beyond.
  • They have several events which have given me the pleasure of getting to know them such as Pizza Night, the Plant and Bake Sale and the Fall Fair.
  • They are thoughtful and serious about their worship. I have made some changes and they've been open to them.
  • They have a very vibrant music ministry for worship services and have engaged with other local churches to share their choir.

  • There are many talented musicians in the congregation.
  • They love the children of the church and are working to expand the Religious Education program.
  • They have a deep caring for each other and offer assistance during times of illness or loss.
  • They are eager to have a new settled minister
I look forward to another few months with them and to seeing their search efforts come to fruition.
