In Person Worship to Begin on Sunday, June 6

Missions Missions put together 20 toiletry and cleaning buckets for Maine Needs based in Portland that will go to whom ever needs them in the state of Maine. “Maine Needs is a grassroots organization, powered by a growing collective of volunteers. We know how resilient people are, but not all of life should be about overcoming adversity. We aim to meet people on the hill they climb and ease stressors by rallying the heart of the community to provide basic needs”. You can read more about them online or on Facebook.
