Come Out of the Darkness

Advent, the beginning of the new liturgical year, will be observed this Sunday, November 29, 2020.

Can you imagine waiting, waiting, and waiting for a sign that the Messiah was coming?  We remember that wait by lighting the first candle on the Advent wreath, the Candle of Hope.

The worship service this week will be led by Lee Thomas, a member of our Worship Committee.  Advent worship is unique with special music, candlelighting by members of our congregation, prayers and readings.  It is a time of anticipation and provides an opportunity to ponder on the events leading up to birth of Jesus.

We hope you will join us either in person or via our Facebook page. Worship begins at 10:00 am and you can participate with us by downloading the bulletin.

ONA Discernment Statement

Last night, the council members of the Presque Isle Congregational Church, United Church of Christ, voted to start the discernment process to become an official Open and Affirming (ONA) Congregation.

We believe this is a natural progression in the life of our congregation, as we already strive to be welcoming and inclusive to all.

To become an ONA Congregation means creating a public declaration of unconditional welcome and support to those in the LGBTQ+  community.  This requires a time of education, reflection, and prayer.  We believe that through this process we can develop an understanding of how we can be fully inclusive to LGBTQ+ persons.
