For this service we will worship outdoors, on the parsonage lawn next to our parking lot. (In case of inclement weather, we will worship in the fellowship hall).

 

 

 

Everyone is invited to bring a pet or other animal to worship for blessing. If you are not able to bring an animal, you may wish to bring a picture of an animal you love or an endangered species in the wild. Please bring animals in cages, carriers, or on a leash. A special focus for this service is a public expression of the bond we have with animals. Through the service we are able to make them an integral part of our worship life and relationships.


Our next Public Supper :

Saturday September 27th

“New England Boiled Dinner”

5:00-6:00 p.m.

“Come and help out or come to eat and bring a friend to enjoy this supper for wonderful fellowship with others”

New Member Orientation, Sundays, September 28 - October 19, 11:30 am -   
Are you interested in becoming a member of Readfield UMC (full or affiliate)? Would you like to transfer membership from another congregation? Are you just curious? Or would you like a refresher course? Everyone is welcome to join in our new Member Orientation which will meet 4 times to discuss and review:

I Our Beliefs

II - Christian History

III- Worship

IV - Local Congregations

 

The focus isn't so much on what it means to be a "Methodist" as what it means to be a member of the Universal Church of Jesus Christ serving and Worshiping through this particular congregation. See Rev. Desi for more information.
