Our Mission is To Worship, Serve and Share God’s Love
WE ARE MAINE’S MID-COAST RECONCILIATION CHURCH SINCE MARCH 1, 1998
The John Street United Methodist Church affirms that all persons are important as human beings created by God and loved by and through Jesus Christ. We recognize that this God-created universe includes a multitude of unique individuals of every age, economic status, race, sexual orientation, religious background and social standing, each of whom is a recipient of God’s unconditional love. In this complex world where diversity can easily divide and separate us, we must, as people of God and followers of Jesus Christ, reach out to all people. Therefore, we affirm that all who seek to experience the power of the Christian Gospel are welcome to participate fully in this congregation’s life pursuant to the Book of Discipline of the United Methodist Church without regard to their sexual orientation, race, gender or other conditions which generate discrimination.
We proclaim our welcome to all and affirm our faith in the love of Jesus Christ, mindful of the prejudice and hateful acts which persists today, particularly against gays and lesbians. Therefore we join with other Methodist Churches in the Reconciling Congregation Program to ensure access to all who have felt excluded from our Christian Community.
Our entire facility is ADA/ handicapped accessible with a large parking lot and two front facing entrances. Gather with us before service and enjoy a snack in our stained glass foyer and plan to stay later for coffee hour in the fellowship hall before starting home.
