We Love Mission Trips!
Each year, members of Central Congregational Church travel to Downeast Maine to help make homes warm, safe and dry for residents in need. We tackle much-needed renovation projects, scrape and paint houses, build and repair porches and handicapped ramps, helping to repair homes and lives. Our goal is to make God’s love visible to those we serve. It is a life-changing experience for both those serving as well as those being served.
On our Down East Maine Mission Trip (DEMM) we go to Washington County and join with a ministry called, “Neighbors in Need.” The DEMM trip is for teens and adults. Youth entering 8th grade and up are eligible, 7th graders and younger should talk with parents and Peter White for mission options with DEMM. We join with the Harvard UCC Congregational Church for this trip and stay at a church camp outside of Machias, Maine. Kids and adults enjoy renewing friendships, making new friends, getting to know the great residents we serve and other DEMM traditions such as star-gazing, campfires, visiting the West Quoddy Head Lighthouse and more! This trip is an 18 year tradition for our church and is always a terrific, meaningful time. Look for an informational meeting to be held in February or early March. For more information and/or to sign up, contact Peter White, 978-407-4913.
