From the Diocese of Maine{Diocese of Maine}

As a Parish of the Diocese of Maine, we are part of a church family that extends from Kittery to Fort Kent, and connects us to the rest of the Episcopal Church and the worldwide Anglican Communion.  We share ministry with our Bishop and with every worshipping community.
If you are not subscribed to the Diocesan twice monthly email newsletter, the DioLog, please click [here] to subscribe.  If you are subscribed, don't forget to open it and read it every time!  There is a lot going on in every corner of the Diocese, and you wouldn't want to miss anything.
 
 

You are invited to a special worship service at the Ocean Park Temple on Sunday, June 23 at 10:30 a.m. with guest preacher, the Most Rev. Michael Curry, Presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church. Bishop Curry is excited to be in Maine with us to share the good news of Jesus Christ with everyone not just Episcopalians but people of all faiths and even those who are "just looking".

The Temple at Orchard Park is a historic, interdenominational space open only during the summer months. We are thrilled that Bishop Curry is the first preacher for the 2019 season. 

Remember how Bishop Curry captivated the world with his words at the Royal Wedding last year?  Well, this will be an extraordinary opportunity to hear Bishop Curry preach in his inimitable style. 

Bishop Curry is quick to say it is not about him. Rather, it is the message itself. "The God who loves us into being and redeems us envisions more for us than we can imagine. Our call, in faith and hope, is to live in to that dream by following in the footsteps of Jesus - not just in our heads, but with our hearts, and with our feet."

If you cannot join us, you will be able to see the sermon via live stream or a recorded version on the Diocese of Maine website. And, in case you don't already know, Bishop Curry will be back with us in Bangor, Maine on 2 May 2019 to help us celebrate the Bicentennial (200th) Anniversary of the Episcopal Diocese in Maine.

Community:

Families First Community Center is putting out a call for volunteers. Primarily we are looking for help to finish the house, so we can open to families in need. Right now we are framing interior walls, mostly we need people to just help. You don't need to be an expert. If you can use a tape measure, carry a 2x4 and use a chop saw you are perfect. We also need people to help staple light weight proper vents, drill holes for electrical wire. General clean up, moving and picking up materials and donations. Drywall repair, and assisting with plumbing. We are very flexible and can work around your schedule. Saturdays have been the most popular time, but people can come during the week as well. We just need to know, so we have materials and someone there. Contact us and let us know who you are, what is the best way to contact you, and your general availability. We are making good progress, but many hands make light work.
