SUMH Welcomes New Bridge Pastor to lead worship in November, 2021
Intentional Interim Pastor Rev. Dr. Janet Adair Hansen led her last worship on Sun. Oct. 17th. The congregation was treated to a message from Ralph Longsworth on church supported housing solutions on Oct. 24th - which was also the date for the "Neighbors in Need" special UCC denominational offering. Oct. 31st is featuring Rev. Douglas Dunlap with the message "Not Far."
The Rev. Dr. Deborah Knowlton will serve as part-time Bridge Pastor starting Nov. 1st while the Search Committee continues to look for a Settled Pastor. See the "About" page for more information about Rev. Knowlton!
Somesville Union Meeting House is a "Just Peace Church." That includes promotion of Racial Justice. In this pivotal time of voter suppression, police violence and brutality against persons of color, and the threat of White Supremacist terrorist groups, we stand with God's people for racial equality and justice.
The Somesville Church has been "Open & Affirming" for over 25 years. We celebrate that June is PRIDE month. ONA Sunday for the UCC was June 27th. Our "Mission Moment" highlighted Maine OUT, and a special litany used in worship written by Rev. Ann Day, the former UCC Coordinator for LGBT Concerns (1987-2007).
The Somesville Church has begun to search for a "Settled Pastor" (permanent, 3/4 time). The "Local Church Profile" will be posted on the national United Church of Christ website. The Rev. Jonna Jensen, Maine UCC Conference Transitional Minister, is the contact person for more information.
The Intentional Interim Pastor, Rev. Dr. Janet Adair Hansen, will be leaving us in October. She began Nov. 2019 and will have served us two years, through the challenges of the Covid Pandemic. We confidently look forward to the future, having come through these times of changes all the stronger.
