Come worship with us via zoom on January 10th, the first Sunday of the Season of Epiphany.
We will celebrate Epiphany and the Baptism of Jesus. "Bring" water! We will remember our baptism as a part of the service.
Mask Giving Tree: Sewing angels are invited to make masks that will be put in individual ziplock bags and labeled for an adult or child. Each bag will then be hung on the tree in front of Readfield UMC for the community to pick up in January. Masks can be dropped off at Readfield United Methodist Church during the month of December. There is a donation box at the side door of the church. Do you know sewers in our community? Please invite them to join us for this meaningful project.

Jesse Lee Meeting House the oldest Methodist church in Maine
(excerpt from George Smith's article in the Kennebec Journal 2/19/2020)
The Readfield Methodist Church is responsible for the Meeting House, which was built between 1793 and 1795. And its dedication on June 21, 1795, drew as many as 2,000 people.
The church was originally up on the hill and was moved 500 feet to its present location by 50 teams of oxen. Regular worship services were held here until 1961 when five local congregations combined into one church currently known as the Readfield United Methodist Church in Kents Hill.But the Jesse Lee Meeting House is still the host of Easter sunrise and Christmas Eve services, plus Sunday evening services in the summer and weddings, funerals, and other special events. Many of the services here involve lots of singing, which is very special. The church, partly because it is so historic, is so peaceful and holy, I could sit there for hours.
Our church members are pleased and proud to care for and maintain this very special church.

It’s been 225 years since the Jesse Lee Meeting House was dedicated on June 21, 1795. As of November 1, 2020, we will have a little over 225 days (232 to be exact) until year 226. Why not celebrate the remaining time of this 225th year anniversary, by making a commitment, a commitment to perform 225 acts of kindness? -- Just one act of kindness a day until June 21, 2021, and perhaps, we will have so much fun, the acts will just keep on going. For ideas see some ideas of acts of kindness b do an online search for “random acts of kindness.” Are you ready to go? Let’s have some fun. Share love. Start a ripple.
