Our mission is to nurture spiritual growth; engage in justice; and build community with respect and compassion.
We are a caring spiritual community of adults and children in the heart of Maine's beautiful Midcoast region, freely gathered to nurture the life of the spirit. We strive to stand as a beacon on a liberal religious path, to challenge one another in the search for truth and beauty, to embrace diversity, to advance peace with justice, and to celebrate life with joy.
If you are looking for a loving, spiritual community where you can be inspired and encouraged as you search for your own truth and meaning, please join us. We meet every Sunday morning at 10:30 in downtown Damariscotta, Maine at the Skidompha Public Library, Elm Street entrance.
The service (back on Zoom) for July 25 at 10:30 is based on the life and words of Henry Thoreau. MUUF Worship Associate Jayne Gordon (and Thoreau!) wrote this service, and she will be joined by readers Patti Anderson, Susan Borg, Liam (Bill) Child, Melissa … read more.
Trailing ThoreauBy Jayne Gordon
This was to have been the spring of trips to Maryland and Virginia to see family, to Costa Rica with Road Scholar, and New Hampshire to teach a course on Thoreau. Now my calendar, like yours, looks like the redacted Mueller Report.
I still need to get out, to explore, to discover new places, to plot and plan and anticipate new surroundings. But in this brave new world, that does not seem very likely. But wait! What did Thoreau say?
Gift Card Scammers Targeting Congregations
In carefully targeted scams, email, text messages, etc. of any kind, designed to look like they were sent by a Minister or member of the Board of Trustees, etc. to ask members for gift cards.
To be clear, no legitimate Minister or MUUF Board Member will EVER do this!
RemindersThe MUUF Choir is Welcoming New Members!
We meet to practice our music, and enjoy each others' company, on Thursday evenings, 7:00 - 8:30 pm. Some of you have felt in the past that going out at night was difficult, but now that our practices are held on Zoom, you can stay home and sing with us comfortably.Snow Cancellation Policy
Fellowship cancellations will be posted on our Facebook page and website. We will also notify the Portland television news channels if there is no worship service.
Please check these official channels rather than calling around to ask whether worship is happening.
