United Parish UCC Church in HarrisonHello! Whoever you are, wherever you are on life's journey, the United Parish of Harrison and North Bridgton, Maine extends you a warm welcome to our web site.

We gather to worship on Sundays at 10:30,  but due to the corona virus our services are now online with Zoom.  We want the church to be a safe and healthy place, so we are observing all relevant health recommendations from the CDC and Maine Council of Churches.  For Zoom log-in information, please call the church office at 207-583-4840, or email

Our church is the joining of two congregations which have served the North Bridgton and Harrison area for over 150 years. We are very much a community church, and a part of the United Church of Christ. Our roots are in the Congregational heritage.  

We are an Open and Affirming Church, the UCC designation for churches that intentionally welcome and include all persons, embracing differences of sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, marital status, family structure, age, mental and physical ability, as well as racial, ethnic, socioeconomic, and faith background.  We invite all to share in the full life and ministry of our church, including worship, sacraments, rites, covenants, fellowship, leadership, employment, commitments, blessings and joys.  Everyone is welcome because the love of Christ for each person has no bounds.  Whoever you are and wherever you are on life's journey, you are welcome here.

This is God's world and we are God's much-loved people, so we seek to let God become real in our lives and community through worship and sacraments, hospitality and love. We are blessed by the various gifts which people bring from their faith and life experiences. We are thankful that God has gathered us in this time and place. We seek to follow the prophet Micah's call to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with your God.

We are on a journey of faith and action, each of us and all of us together. We acknowledge Jesus Christ as our Sovereign and Savior, the one whose life, death and resurrection show us what is means to be fully human. We depend on the guidance and power of the Holy Spirit to sustain us and bring Christ alive in us. We are thankful for the guidance of Scripture, and for the witness of those who have gone before and walk with us now.

The kingdom of God is a party, and we are thankful, for we are hungry and thirsty.

Rev. Franklin Anderson, Pastor
