OUR MISSION

The United Methodist Economic Ministry exists to be in partnership with rural communities in western Maine to create healthy, sustainable communities

within the region.

In response to God’s call in Christ to clothe the naked, feed the hungry, and care for the homeless (Matthew 25:35-37), the UMEM seeks to promote social justice and provide material, educational, and spiritual support as first steps toward self-sufficiency in this region of severe economic challenge.
