First Parish offers lofty view of the 'kingdom'


“They are warm, welcoming and friendly,” she said. “They are my second family and, when times are tough, they are there to pick you up, cheer you on, prepare meals, have the shoulder to cry on and always have an extra prayer.”

Gordon has attended First Parish for about 13 years and said the congregation is not only rich in tradition as the area’s first meeting house, but is now a modern church family that accepts all and does a lot of good for the community.

The church will celebrate its 300th anniversary in 2019.

“People love the camera,” Staggs said. “We plan to leave it up as long as possible.”

Gordon said people can access the tower camera images through the First Parish site at or via Facebook.

“It’s been great, especially the fall season as the leaves were changing,” he said. “Now we can look at the beautiful snow-covered ground.”
