New to the Maine Conference?

The Maine Conference of the United Church of Christ (UCC) is home to over 150 congregations spread out across the state of Maine who gather to celebrate, express, and discover their faith. Our congregations all serve their communities in varying, but impactful ways. As a Conference, we seek to resource our local congregations, guide congregations and pastors through the search and call process, and collaborate with partners to set the mission and goals for the Wider Church. We are an Open and Affirming Conference which means that we welcome all people into the full life, leadership, and ministry of the Maine Conference of the United Church of Christ.

Vision of the Maine Conference

Building a loving and faithful community – respecting, challenging, empowering and supporting one another – that follows Christ into the world to the glory of God for the benefit of all.

Mission of the Maine Conference

Moving Forward Together for the Love of God

and the World.
