We are a small, Christian, community church that welcomes people of all faiths. Our congregation represents all age groups. We worship and laugh together as we serve God, our community and each other. New members will tell you they continued to come back because they felt welcome here, and long-standing members will tell you with a smile that these people are their friends. As a congregation, this is our goal! We share a belief in the love of God in Jesus Christ, and each other. Come and experience the joy of a living, laughing and loving church! WORSHIP BEGINS AT 9:00 AM EVERY SUNDAY!!! EVERYONE IS WELCOME. NO EXCEPTIONS!

New Garden Dedicated to Jeff and Monika Young
In June, a new garden at the Church was officially dedicated to the Rev. Jeff Young and his wife Monika who served North Turner Presbyterian for many years. They have remained good friends with the Church and many members of the community over the ensuing years. The Church wanted to officially celebrate the joy of that longstanding friendship and recognize both Jeff and Monika for the amazing people they are! We are looking forward to seeing how this new garden and our garden out front have survived this cold and snowy and very, very long winter. We hope to see green popping up through very soon!
Church Supper News Mud Supper is April 5
Be on the "look out" for the first "Suppa of the Season!" We will hopefully see everyone on Saturday, April 5 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the GAR Hall. when we begin again with Mud Supper, as we celebrate Maine's 'fifth season". In case you are wondering, we do not serve "Mud" but we do serve great food that comes in many shades of "brown" including golden mac n cheese, brown beans, chocolate cake and pie, and golden browned bread! The community support we receive for our suppers is very much appreciated and not only helps us keep the Church doors open but also helps to fund our outreach activities which include the Community Clothing Center, the Turner Food Bank, our heating assistance program and our Sunday School. So thanks again and see you for Mud Supper on April 5. It better be mud season by then! The GAR Hall is located on Route 219, Howes Corner Road, approximately 1/4 mile east of the Route 4 and Route 219 intersection in North Turner. There is no set price but goodwill donations are taken at the door.
Sunday School News
Sunday School classes are well under way and as we start into the Lenten season we will be discussing with the children the wonderful and inspiring people of the Bible and what lessons we can learn from them: Moses, Abraham, Daniel, David, Ruth and Deborah. And, of course, we will be discussing the Easter Story and what it means to each of us as Christians. The Superheros of the Bible have important lessons to teach are children and being a Superhero makes it fun. We will continue our focus on the good effects each person can have through the power of faith, hope, charity and love. As always, we will be having crafts, games and activities that make our time together more fun! If you would like to bring your child or children to Sunday School, it is held during worship every Sunday morning from 9 to 10 a.m. We welcome little ones from 3-years to 12-years and if you have a teen that would like to help and be a teacher's assistant, please let us know. We look forward to celebrating Easter and having another chance to teach the children about God's love and to having fun!
