The Maine Conference, UCC has 14,000 members in churches across the state. We are part of the United Church of Christ, dedicated to a vision “United in Christ, A Just World for All.” We worship a Still Speaking God, knowing that God is constantly revealing more light and truth to our beautiful and hurting world.
Our mission priorities are nurturing leaders, supporting vitality in our churches, living out our Oneness in Christ, and doing the work of Justice, Peace and caring for God’s creation.
Our churches, including Somesville Union Meeting House, are in all parts of this gorgeous state of Maine, from Fort Kent to Kittery, from Machias to Bethel. Our congregations are mostly smaller in membership, and always expansive in mission and ministry. We are centers of our communities and beacons of light to our neighbors.
We are a Just Peace, Open and Affirming Conference, extending an extravagant welcome to all. We welcome all people into the full life, leadership, and ministry of the Maine Conference of the United Church of Christ. Our Anti-Racism Team and Earthcare and Spirituality Team lead us in program and advocacy for racial justice and care of God’s creation. Our Honduras Partnership provides opportunities for learning and growing in understanding of issues of justice far beyond our borders.
