No matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here!
Seeking to Walk in the Way of Jesus
The early Christian church was called "The Way." We like that! The Way of Jesus, as we experience him, is the way of justice and mercy, forgiveness and and love, healing and hope, community and care, right-relationship and peace, and, above all, grace.
Open and Affirming
We are an Open and Affirming Church of the United Church of Christ. That means we, as a church, are committed to full inclusion for LGBTQ+ persons. We mean it! This stance has been a part of our communal life for over a decade now.
Who is on the margins?
This is how we do it
Perhaps it is the Trans teen who has been kicked out of their home, or a refugee, or maybe just someone who needs a bar of soap and some toilet paper. In our current climate, it may be our Muslim neighbor, local Synagogue, or the earth herself.
We are a joyous, hard working, and often-irreverent bunch, 150 or so souls strong, with a lot of heart and a big building to match. We are grateful for the opportunity to serve God through our service to the greater Waterville community.
DUE TO THE INCREASE IN COVID-19 CASES, THE ESSENTIALS CLOSET WILL BE CLOSED THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER. We hope to reopen on Wednesday, December 16th.
