Welcome to the Elm Street Congregational Church
Church Building

Our vision... "Centered in God, acting through Christ's love and incorporating good stewardship, we move forward to continue to create and strengthen our community of caring. Our caring actions shall be directed in a manner that moves from the care and sustenance of our church family to the community of Bucksport and beyond as resources, needs and Spirit direct."

Worship with us! Our services begin at 10:00 am. Children who wish to attend Sunday School gather in the sanctuary before proceeding to their classrooms.

We are located at 31 Elm Street, in Bucksport, Maine. Click here for directions and a map to our church. (Please note that we are worshiping in Brown Hall during the months of January, February, and March. Brown Hall is in the building adjacent to the sanctuary.)
