We celebrate that God is with us in times of joy and adversity to strengthen and encourage us through the presence of each other and the love of Jesus forever.
This Church serves as a community
resource for Hancock and a landmark for travelers to Downeast Maine.
It provides an open and affirming spiritual home affiliated with the
United Church of Christ that links the Church with a national and
international network of churches and service agencies. Through its
budget and special donations it supports many local organizations and
programs to provide important assistance to those in need of food,
shelter, clothing, comfort, and support.
We strive to provide spiritual and
practical aid for our members and for those in the community who seek assistance or are brought to our
attention by others. In particular we provide some medical equipment,
limited financial assistance for expenses, and emotional support
during health crises. We hold annual rummage sales, yard sales, a
fair, and other activities to benefit local residents.
We welcome members and friends in Sunday morning worship, hold adult education
discussions weekly, church school for children on Sundays, and
encourage participation in the choir.
Church members provide leadership and
the lay council manages the church operation through a variety of
committees. All important decisions are made by vote of the members
of the Church.
We welcome new members from all faith traditions.
The Church is accessible (reserved parking for disabled access next to the Church and ramp at rear door) and provides audio amplification equipment for the hearing impaired.
We invite you to Sunday Worship Services, Church School, and Nursery at 10 a.m. at the Church, 1368 US Route 1 in Hancock, Maine. (Sunday School is not available in August.) [Be sure to use street address for GPS or online directions, as there is another Union Congregational Church in Ellsworth Falls!]
