Maine winters are known to be long and often challenging- snow, ice, cold, and darkness seem to prevail. So, come summer we know that it is important to live it up by getting outside, enjoying the natural world that God has blessed us with, and soaking up the sun whenever possible. Should you be vacationing here in Maine we would love to have you join us for worship either in person or via ZOOM. You are always welcome!
Sunday, September 4th: The Thirteenth Sunday after Pentecost including Holy Communion
Scripture readings: Jeremiah 18:1-11; Luke 14:25-33
Liturgist: Diane Stuart
Ushers: Jerry and Diane Stuart
Worship leader and preaching: Pastor Rich
Theme: Costly Discipleship- Jesus’ teaching about what it means to be his disciple causes us to sit up and take notice. How can he possibly expect us do what he asks? Isn’t it enough to just believe in him? Discipleship that really is discipleship is clearly costly and we must all count the cost!
The service will be offered on line as well using the ZOOM link that you will find below.

A trustworthy guide to understanding the Book of Revelation.The Book of Revelation contains passages of great beauty and comfort, as well as passages that strike the casual reader as bizarre, bewildering, and sometimes frightening. How are readers today to discern God’s message in this peculiar part of the Bible?
Breaking the Code Revised Edition provides a trustworthy guide to the rich symbolism of this important biblical book. Noted biblical scholar Bruce M. Metzger presents the fruits of solid scholarship in a non-academic style.
