Union Church

Peace and presence by the sea…

Union Church is an interdenominational Christian church that welcomes those who wish to journey with us as we seek to receive and follow God’s sacred spirit and the ethical teachings of Jesus Christ. We are an evolving community of faith that seeks to reflect the love and compassion of God through our conduct. We follow the teaching of Jesus to love God, neighbor, and self. We have reverence for Earth and all living creatures. We are a worshiping community that gathers to give thanks and to celebrate the Holy Presence of God in all things. We welcome all visitors.


From the Pastor…

My friends, as I sit here today, the weather is unusually mild and the sun is shining. It feels like spring, but we all know well, that this is just a taste of winter thaw and that snow is forecast for later in the week. For some, the mild temperatures bring a sense of hope that spring will arrive early, as our friend the groundhog recently predicted. For those who love winter sports, the hope lies in some cold, snowy weather ahead. We held our semi-annual meeting on the last Sunday in January and all went very well. I will include some highlights from the reports shared at that meeting within this report.

We are still in the midst of winter and so I invite you to make the most of these days, to be present to the gifts as well as the challenges of winter in Maine. Valentine’s Day is just a few days away and so I send you all warm greetings of love and fellowship and a reminder that you are loved. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Blessings,

Pastor Paula
