in-person worship has begun, too
Opening presents is exciting and fun. What’s inside? It is the same with spiritual gifts. We may not even know what they are until we unwrap them. Take this simple test to find out what YOUR spiritual gifts are. You could be surprised! You may be able to help the church in ways you didn’t expect---and also gain a little valuable self-knowledge.
Jesse Lee renovation!
Just look at us now!
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.

You can still worship at home via zoom. Or, if you are comfortable doing so, you are invited join us at Torsey church. The Reentry team has prepared the sanctuary with signs, hand sanitizing stations, extra masks, and greeters who will help you navigate within the new social distancing safety protocol. Masks and social distancing are required. The Tech team continues to work on perfecting the sound and video. Thank you for the generosity, flexibility, adaptability, and grace that you have showed so far. What a wonderful congregation - the people of wisdom, love and prayer! Though pandemic brought us challenges, our connection brought us bigger joy that strengthened us through the power of the Holy Spirit. Thanks be to God!
