A sign of the times marks First Parish

A sign of the times marks First Parish
The Bolton Common: 02-01-2007

"The First Parish of Bolton, 673 Main St., has made its name change “official” with the installation of a new sign. Since 1931, the town’s oldest church had been known as the Bolton Federated Church, the result of the town’s three churches — Unitarian, Baptist, and Quaker — agreeing to worship together and have one minister, while maintaining their own individual identities. In 2002, the church voted to use its original and historic name — “The First Parish of Bolton, Interdenominational.

"The new sign, the gift of several individuals, features the logos of the Unitiarian Universalist Association, the United Church of Christ and the American Baptist Churches."
