What We Believe
We celebrate the Holy Scriptures and believe Jesus is the heart of our church. Jesus is our example in devotion to issues of peace and justice. We value the traditions of the past, yet look to the future, believing
God is Still Speaking.
Union Congregational Church of Hancock, United Church of Christ, is a Christ-centered community that celebrates the Love of God. Though guided by Christ, we do not insist on any one interpretation of the Gospel. We understand that God reveals him/herself to different people in different ways. Although we are of varied minds, we are one body, bound together in Christ.
We are an Open and Affirming congregation. That means we seek to respond faithfully to God's call for justice and peace. We strive in word and deed to be faithful to Jesus's model of loving acceptance. It is in this spirit and in the love of God that we openly welcome all persons, inclusive of every race, ethnicity, class, age, gender, physical or mental ability, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression, to join in the full life and ministry of the church.
This Church serves as a community resource for Hancock and a landmark for travelers to Downeast Maine. It provides an open and affirming spiritual home affiliated with the United Church of Christ that links the Church with a national and international network of churches and service agencies. Through its budget and special donations it supports many local organizations and programs to provide important assistance to those in need of food, shelter, clothing, comfort, and support. Church members provide leadership and the lay council manages the church operation through a variety of committees. All important decisions are made
by vote of the members of the Church.
