Historically we have been a community church, committed to strengthening our ties to the Raymond Community and providing opportunities for fellowship throughout the Town.
Here are a few of the ways we encourage community here in Raymond:
Pot Roast Suppers – We put on five public suppers during the summer and fall, with each one serving meals to 90-150 people. Folks come from far and wide and have been known to plan their vacation to coincide with a supper! Pot roast suppers have been a tradition in our church for a long time! Both sit down and take out meals are available and include a full dinner including brownies a la mode with chocolate sauce for dessert!
Raymond Arts Alliance (RAA) – We are thrilled to be partnering with the RAA by offering them space for their events and programs. The mission of the RAA is to encourage and foster community through the arts. Our church hosts their community concerts, weekly qigong classes, poetry readings, and other events.
Sweetheart Brunch – Each Valentine’s Day a special brunch is provided for all to come together and celebrate. This heart themed brunch is a wonderful way to celebrate the spirit of love on Valentine’s Day.
Free Community Meals – Throughout the year we provide free meals to our community. We have partnered with RSU 14’s Katahdin Program allowing their students to bring their kitchen to our community.
These meals provide an opportunity for our community to get together and make new friends while enjoying a home cooked meal. See https://www.pressherald.com/2019/12/06/students-take-to-the-kitchen-for-community/
