What time is your worship service?
Our service is at 10:00 AM. Services usually last about an hour.

Where are you located? Where do I park?
655 Main Street, Fryeburg, Maine. You can park on the street in front, or in the back of the church.

When should I arrive?
People start to gather around 9:45 AM.

Are children welcomed in worship?
Absolutely!  Children stay for the beginning of the service with their parents and leave the sanctuary following the anthem to attend Sunday School downstairs. However, if they feel more comfortable remaining in the service with their parents they are always welcome to do so.

What do I wear?
Come as you are! Some of us like to dress up and others wear casual clothes to church. It is most important that you feel comfortable.

Can I take communion?
Communion is open to all who attend services, including children. We celebrate Holy Communion on the first Sunday of each month.

Is the church accessible?
A ramp is located on the left side of the church which leads to the sanctuary.
We have headphones for worshipers who are hearing impaired.

My family would not necessarily be defined as “traditional.”  Is that a problem?
As an Open and Affirming church, we welcome and embrace with affir­mation all persons of every age, race, culture, marital status and family structure, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, political affiliation, physical and mental ability, economic and social status and religious background, including non-believers and seekers.

Do you allow gay marriages to be held in your church?
Absolutely! The United Church of Christ was the first mainstream Christian church to fully support same-sex marriage and perform marriage ceremonies, and our church is no exception.

What about membership?
You do not need to be a member to participate in the life of this church.  We welcome you, and hope that this church will be for all a place of spiritual nourishment and community.
