Springtime News

Download the church's Springtime News.  It is a letter detailing our transition back to worship at Hancock and Pine. Let us praise God for how He used our time of worship at 460 High St, and anticipate together how He will continue to build His church in 2022.

We Can Serve!

We Can Serve. All believers know, on a fundamental level, we are not our own.  We have been bought with a price, the price of Christ’s blood.  And our salvation, by God’s grace, means that we are transferred from one kingdom to another, from the kingdom of darkness to...

OT2022 UBC Annual Bible Reading Plan

Brothers and sisters,  Hopefully you have participated in and enjoyed our reading plans. Most recently, we have made our way through the entire New Testament and spent time with selected Psalms. In the coming year we will turn our attention to the Old Testament.  The...

These are tough times for everyone.  We understand, and would like to pray for you–no strings attached.  Just send us your first name (if you want to) and what you would like us to pray for, and we will do exactly that.  We may not be able to come alongside you physically at this time, but we can draw near in prayer.  It would be our pleasure to pray for you.

 

Living Out Our Purpose

At the United Baptist Church of Ellsworth, our purpose is also our process—to make disciples of Jesus Christ through worship, fellowship, and service for the glory of God.

Lighting the Way

Of the reportedly 65 lighthouses along the Maine Coast, 57 are active, 55 of which are managed by the Coast Guard. As shining sentinels guarding harbor entrances and standing on rocky shoals, these beacons guide fishermen and sailors safely home through the darkness hiding Maine’s hazardous waters and cliff lined shores

Don’t Miss It!

Unwavering from its course, the distant ship is missing the wonder of this seal rookery and is a reminder of the gentleman in the anonymously written poem “Opportunities Missed”: There was a very cautious man/Who never laughed or played/He never risked, he never tried/ He never sang or prayed. // And when he one day passed away/His insurance was denied/For since he never really lived/They claimed he never died!

Beggars and Horses

“If wishes were horses beggars would ride”, an old Scottish proverb, expresses a desire for the ideal but assumes the harsh reality that not everything is possible. We long for Eden, for Paradise Lost, for a perfect world where there would be no reason for beggars. However, we know that there will always be poverty, mental illness, economic and social inequality, injustice, war and evil behavior. We are incapable of achieving a flawless state because men’s heart are broken and their minds are weak. Regardless of how long we spin our wheels and no matter how high our IQ’s are, we have neither foreknowledge nor incorruptible characters. So, we are given to incomplete or illogical thoughts which lead to flawed actions and unintended consequences.

Ripples

Our personal impact on the small world around us, even in the more mundane moments, is powerful. Words, attitudes, efforts, and behaviors can diminish or encourage those who seek our approval. Similarly, we remember kindnesses, affirmations, encouragements, gentle exhortations and commendations, but we also hang onto negativity directed at us. We nurse snide remarks, verbal abuse, being ignored, and gossipy character assassinations. Apologies may be made and forgiveness sought, but words and actions can’t be retrieved and may evolve into resentments.

Of Lilacs and Remembrances

“ Look, the winter is past, and the rains are over and gone/ The flowers are springing up, the season of singing birds has come, and the cooing of turtledoves fills the air… “Lilacs are exuberantly purple and perfumed, and cherry trees fragrant with blossoms….”(Song of Songs 2:11-12, NLT2; 2:13 MSG)

We Can Pray!

We Can Pray.  There isn’t a Christian alive who doesn’t already know about the Bible’s commands to pray, and there are probably very few (research seems to show) who are happy with their prayer lives.  These two factors—knowing what we are supposed to do and feeling...

We Can Worship!

We Can Worship! In March of 2020, when the pandemic measures were first instituted, our church could not gather.  As the restrictions loosened, we were able to gather with limitations.  And now, for the time being at least, we can gather without them.  We can worship,...
