About

In 1860, when the main industries were fishing, farming, and granite quarrying, a group of citizens joined together to establish a church.   From this beginning until today, the Union Church of Vinalhaven has provided a faithful ministry and witness to Jesus Christ.  The term “Union” indicates that from its inception the Church was meant to be inclusive and multidenominational yet receptive to the best insights of mainline Protestant traditions.    We endeavor to live a true Christian life; walk together in love, sharing each other’s joys and bearing each other’s burdens; we will maintain private and family devotions by teaching our family  the teachings of Jesus; we will faithfully assemble ourselves for worship and work for the church;  and we will contribute as God has prospered us, for the support of the church, the relief of the poor, and the spread the Gospel over the earth.
