WORSHIP & COMMUNITY
Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic,
there has been NO PUBLIC WORSHIP
IN OUR SANCTUARY BUILDING at
1136 Main St. Somesville Village
to request an invitation to join
our online Zoom worship
However, Summer 2021 we will have Outdoor Worship on 3rd Sundays at 10:30 AM on the Fernald's lawn behind the church. Plus, we hope to resume in-person worship in July, offering a hybrid, with worship still shared online.
The SUMH Congregation will meet again Sun. June 6th after worship. Paper ballots have been sent to members to vote on whether to list the position of "Settled Pastor" as full-time or part time. The rest of the "Local Church Profile" was approved on May 2nd to post nationally on the UCC website.
The Local Church Profile, prepared by the Pastor Search Committee with information gathered by the Transition Team last summer and input from the members in meetings, describes the Somesville Church and community, and what kind of leadership skills are desired in a new pastor. This description is visible to church members only on a drop-down menu from the "Home" button.
A compensation package range was agreed upon, but the question remained open as to whether this would be full-time or part-time.
Next, the UCC Maine Conference staff endorses the profile and it can be listed nationwide on the United Church of Christ denomination pages.
The Intentional Interim Pastor, Rev. Dr. Janet Adair Hansen, who began Nov. 2019, has served us through the challenges of the Covid Pandemic, but it is exciting to now look forward to the future!
