• Deane’s Twentieth Anniversary Message

    Welcome to the Unitarian Universalist Church of Belfast, proudly celebrating our 20th year. What an extraordinary accomplishment! Then again, our committed, energetic congregation often achieves the extraordinary!

    Who would have thought, in 1994, when a few families said “Let’s start a church,” that we’d be celebrating such a robust church community today? We’ve taken more seemingly impossible leaps forward since then: purchasing our “home,” the former Methodist Church, hiring key staff and hiring me as UUCB’s first full time called minister.

    Our members and friends have made significant local and global contributions through the years. Other initially “impossible” goals include: founding the Restorative Justice Program of the Mid-coast; bringing the burgeoning Window Dressers Energy Conservation Program to Belfast; sponsoring youth service projects in Maine, New Orleans, and Guatemala; and launching the first annual Belfast Peace Festival.

    Looking to 2015 and beyond, we are excited by the possibilities and challenged by the need.  Our faith community remains energetic and committed, and is blazing new trails to the future. Providing an ample ‘base camp’ by expanding our now well-used and overflowing building will be one of the crucial first steps.

    Please visit soon. It will be a pleasure to meet you. Join us on this exciting adventure.
