We gather to worship together every Sunday morning at 8:00 and 10:00 a.m. Our 8:00 service is a casual service of prayer and scripture -- with a full sermon. Our 10:00 service includes choral music, a children's sermon, and much more. Child care is always available. In the summer months, in lieu of Church School, we have Summer Sunday Activities for our youth every week.
Our Church's Mission
The Mission of this church is to be God's people in this place, to be obedient to God's unfolding will, to celebrate God's presence, strength, faithfulness, and love; to do God's work as the Holy Spirit moves us, and to be faithful proclaimers of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, collectively and individually, in God's world.
As a church community seeking to do God's work in this world, we take the United Church of Christ's motto "To Believe is to Care, To Care is to Do" to heart. We invite you to take a look at our Missions Page to get a sampling of the many ways in which we are seeking to put our faith into action in the world.
Our Church School meets throughout the school year. With classes from pre-kindergarten to middle school, our Church School is getting better and better every year. And with a number of new families in the church, it promises to only get better.
In the summer, in lieu of Church School, we have Summer Sunday Activities every week. Children of all ages are welcome to join us for gardening, games, arts and crafts, and much, much more during our 10:00 a.m. service.
Children always attend the first part of worship in the sanctuary and then head to Church School, or Summer Sunday Activities, following the Children's Sermon (approximately 20 minutes into the service).

Our Church Building
We are proud to say that our church is the oldest church building in continuous use in the state of Maine. Built in 1730, the church maintains a number of original features -- including the original 1730 pulpit, and the original two-aisle design common in New England meetinghouses. The sanctuary has stood witness to countless weddings, funerals, services, concerts, and other special events over the years, and it continues to serve as a wonderful house of worship for our growing congregation.

All women who are interested in the church form the Women's Fellowship. This group meets officially four times a year to socialize and to distribute money earned during the year. We sponsor the Summer Craft Fair and the Christmas Fair, and give away more than $16,000 a year. There is a Winter Retreat in January and a Christmas party in December, as well as other opportunities for conversation and support.
