The mission of our church is first and foremost to love God as fully as we can with all that we have and all that we do and all that we are.  We are to be a place where lives can be changed, including our own. Please come and join us, or tell us how we can join with your group in efforts of aid and comfort.  

We are  located in the rural area of Maine along the midcoast. 

All that we do stems from our relationship to Jesus and how he has called us to love others.

We are committed to creating a community that is dedicated to recovery from addiction and will do all we can to support those on the road to recovery in all the various programs and individual journeys.

We are committed to helping those in need, both in regards to housing, hunger and mental  and physical well-being.

We have supported the Al Ahli Hospital in Gaza and are committed to helping those around the world who are reaching out to all in need, no matter what religion or ethnic background.

We, for years, supported a school outside of Gros Morne, Haiti.  But are now in a time off and reflection as to our commitment to the larger church around the world.

We have a prayer chain to offer prayers for people whose names are given to us, and commit ourselves to offering our prayers for people in various needs.

We have a knitting group which knits prayer shawls for those who are ill, grieving or in need being wrapped in some amazing prayer.

We are committed to reaching out with the message of the gospel to all, and to bringing the understanding of the living experience of God into the lives and community around us.

We will work with all who are making the commitment to the common good, and who are willing to join with us.

The mission of this parish has been summed up in the words of Jesus when he said,   “We are to love the Lord, our God, with all our heart, and with all our soul, and with all our mind, and with all our strength; and our neighbor and mind; and our neighbor as ourselves.”
