Site Description

We are a growing, vibrant, Open and Affirming congregation in the United Church of Christ, located on the picturesque Piscataqua River in Kittery Point, Maine. Although we worship in the oldest church building in the state of Maine (1730), our thoughts and beliefs are contemporary and our worship offers a message relevant to living in today’s world. Our congregation is a diverse group of young and old, long-time members and new attendees, from all across the Seacoast, all with differing beliefs that represent the many faith traditions in which we were raised. We are a congregation that believes in theological diversity, putting our faith into action in the community, enjoying ourselves during worship, and making our church a welcome space for all who wish to attend, as we listen to hear how God is still speaking to us today!

Stipend Expectation

This site meets the stipend expectation

Student Involvement

The goal of having a student minister would be to allow the student to experience as wide a range of ministerial experiences as possible—from preaching and teaching, to visitation and pastoral care, and the many and varied other tasks that a minister is called to do. We would work with a student to design a plan that would meet his or her needs and desires, though we would ask that work with our youth be a part of their program.

Commitment to Educating Ministers

Our church has a rich history of calling young ministers fresh out of seminary, and helping them develop as ministers. This speaks to the welcoming, affirming, and supportive nature of the congregation. Although this would be our first student minister, the Teaching Parish Committee would work with a student to ensure that his or her experience with us is a positive learning experience—for the student and the congregation.
