THE ARRIVAL OF "FALL" BRINGS WITH IT A "NEW" NORMAL 

Fall is traditionally the time when churches return to normal after the summer lull.  While we are grateful to resume some of the things that would be normal in any other year, we are aware that we are not yet ready to truly return to normal just yet.  That said, we expect that the fall will provide ample opportunities for worship, study, fellowship, and service in the community.  Please take a look elsewhere on this website to get a better idea of what you can expect for the fall.  Welcome to the "new" normal!

FALL STUDY GROUP 

A study of the Adam Hamilton book, ‚ÄúUnafraid: Living with Courage and Hope in Uncertain Times‚ÄĚ, is¬†planned for this fall. This DVD based study is five sessions and addresses such topics as:

Understanding and Countering Fear

Crime, Race, Terrorism, and Politics

Failure, Disappointing Others, Insignificance and Loneliness

Apocalypse, Change, Missing Out and Finances

Aging, Illness, Dying, and Fear of the Lord

Although published in 2018, as you can see, these topics are even more relevant today than they were then.  I am planning to lead a study group this fall via ZOOM.  I will order the books (we have six already which will go to the first six people to be in touch with me).  The cost for the books is $10.00 each.

The classes will meet on five Tuesday evenings starting on October 5th and concluding on November 2nd.  The time will be 7:00-8:00pm for each class.

For more information or to register please e-mail Pastor Rich Cullen at coxumcpastor@gmail.com or call the church at 207-622-6636.

EASING OF RESTRICTIONS FOR IN-PERSON WORSHIP 

We returned to ‚Äúin-person‚ÄĚ worship on Sunday, May 2nd and as the situation here in Maine continues to change regarding the Covid-19 virus our restrictions are changing as well.¬†Effective on Sunday, August 1st here is what you need to know if you are planning to participate in in-person worship:

  • Our ushers will continue to take attendance for contact tracing purposes should it ever be necessary, but temperatures will no longer be taken and the usual questions will not be asked.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available once you enter the building.¬† Please feel free to use it before touching anything.
  • Mask wearing is now encouraged for those who have been vaccinated as well as for those who are unvaccinated.
  • The pew cushions have been returned to every pew allowing you to sit any where that you would like.¬† We would still encourage people to socially distance from others in the pews if possible.
  • For the time being singing will be allowed although we would ask those who choose to sing to wear a mask when singing.
  • During the summer months we will begin to have a fellowship time following the worship service in the Fellowship Hall.

We will continue to live stream the worship service at 10:00am also via the ZOOM link that is included below.
