We are 65 year-round congregations – from York Harbor to Presque Isle, Rumford to Eastport – filled with people who seek to love and serve God with gladness and singleness of heart, and to seek and to serve Christ in all persons. That the simple answer, straight from the Baptismal Covenant found in the Book of Common Prayer.
Recently we decided to ask Maine Episcopalians how they would answer questions about their church community and the ministry we do together. We also asked what they would say to people who were interested in finding out more about God and the role a faith community might play in their lives.
We got some awesome answers!
