We provide lay ministry to the people of the church (visiting the ill, shut-ins, and newcomers.)We also organize the sign up sheet for Coffee Hour/Fellowship following each Sunday service.
The Christian Education Committee provides Sunday school for our young attendees The children learn about Christian values, studying important Bible stories and messages, and have fun.

The Board of Missions coordinates the mission and social action programs of the church. We oversee the scheduling of special offerings as needed, such as the Pastoral Fund, Food Pantry, and UCC Annual Offerings.

The Board of Stewardship coordinates the annual stewardship appeal each fall in order to obtain pledges for the support and operation of the Church budget. We also help organize and maintain the Thrift Shop and the Dairy Bar.
Delegates participate in the Maine State Conference of United Church of Christ and the Oxford Union Association. They report to the membership the actions, deliberations, and matters of interest resulting from the Conference.
