COVID-19 Worship - Until further notice, worship is being pre-recorded and posted on our YouTube Channel and we invite you to view together on Sundays at 10:15am. We encourage you to add "public comments" to say hello to one another and share prayer concerns. For those unable to access YouTube, worship is also found on our Facebook Page as well as on Channel 3 Brunswick and Channel 14 Bath. We look forward to gathering together in person sometime soon!
Virtual Holy Communion - We offer Holy Communion on Zoom every Sunday at 10am, and all are welcome to join us. Just have some bread and grape juice ready. The pastor will officiate the short service and then invite all to receive together. Once per month, the pastor leads a Communion service on the worship video and invites everyone to drive over to the church to receive in-person from their cars. Again, all are welcome.
What to Expect When We are Worshiping in Person
Worship begins Sundays at 10:15am There will be someone to greet you at the door and answer any questions you might have. If you are comfortable in so doing, you may fill out a name tag; most worshipers will be wearing one. We gather together as a multi-generational church, so worship includes traditional as well as contemporary styles. Feel free to grab a cup of coffee or tea in the worship space, which is in the fellowship hall. Worship includes times for prayer, singing, reading of Scripture and responding to God's Word in meaningful ways and generally lasts just over an hour.
How should I dress? Some enjoy dressing up and others dress casual - we recommend whatever is most comfortable for you. There is a coat room just through the entryway.
Where do I park? The church has a large parking lot that includes several reserved handicapped spots in front. There is also a drop-off circle. If you need assistance, one of the greeters will be happy to help you.
What about my children? Children are always welcome to stay in worship with their family. Nursery care for infants and toddlers is provided during worship, and there is a craft table available for children who stay in worship. Children's Sunday School is offered for pre-school through grade 8 before worship on Sundays at 9am.
Do you celebrate Holy Communion? Yes! All are welcome to receive but there is also no pressure to do so. We usually receive by intinction which means you will be given a piece of bread (or request rice cake from your server) to dip in the cup to eat, which become for us the body and blood of Christ to nourish and sustain us in our faith. Communion or “the Lord’s Supper” can also be a sign of placing one’s trust in Christ or renewing that commitment and knowing God’s forgiveness and healing. We generally celebrate Holy Communion on the first Sunday of the month in worship, but we also offer weekly Holy Communion at 10am on other Sundays of the month. All are welcome.
Is there anything else I should know? The only thing you need to know is that we love our church family and we love to welcome everyone and anyone to join us!
We hope to see you this Sunday!
