CONTINUING A TRADITION OF WORSHIP SINCE 1773
Since 1773, there has been a worshiping congregation on this site in the heart of Wiscasset. While we are in our third building, we continue a 250 year tradition!
The original congregational covenant was "We profess ourselves the disciples of Jesus Christ, whom we believe is the true and promised Messiah, and we believe that the sacred Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are the word of God, and that they open and show the way to eternal life, and that if attended to and accompanied with the divine spirit, are able to make us wise to salvation."
A CONGREGATION OF THE UNITED CHURCH OF CHRIST
We are a member of the Maine Conference of the UCC, which has a vision of building a loving and faithful community – respecting, challenging, empowering and supporting one another – that follows Christ into the world to the glory of God for the benefit of all.
The Maine Conference consists of 153 congregations and about 14,000 members.

OPEN & AFFIRMING
"The members of the First Congregational Church of Wiscasset United Church of Christ are committed to the spirit of Jesus’ commandment to love God and your neighbor as yourself. We embrace diversity and affirm the dignity and worth of every person. We welcome all people of every age, race, gender, ethnicity, faith background, marital status and family structure, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, mental and physical ability, economic & social status, educational background, and any other label that may divide rather than unite us. We ask all to join in our common purpose to live according to the example of Jesus the Christ. We honor human relationships based on love, responsibility, respect, and trust. As we grow together in faith and love, we are secure in the knowledge that God’s love is for everyone and we invite all persons to participate in our church’s ministries."
