Welcome to Raymond Village Community Church, United Church of Christ

Welcome to Our Church


Please invite a friend to join us! We will have an outdoor Coffee Hour with coffee, tea and treats!  Based on changes at the State level and the ending of the State of Emergency in the State of Maine, the COVID restrictions have changed. We still need to maintain some social distancing, but do not need to worry about restricting numbers in the sanctuary. We can now go in through the vestry, and up those stairs to the sanctuary. We are currently asking that all people, regardless of their vaccination status to wear masks in the Sanctuary during services.

We can’t wait to see YOU!!!!!

Starting on Sunday January 2, 2022, we will resume having Worship on Zoom. The Council and Deacons have decided to resume Zoom worship for a variety of reasons. It enables more of our snowbirds to join us for worship, we don’t need to worry about bad weather and most importantly it keeps us all safe from COVID concerns during the winter months.
You can access Zoom worship with the following link:
Just click the link below then “Open Zoom Meeting”, then “join with video” and “join with computer audio”. There is a waiting room so the host will admit you.
