Merger of Wesleyan churches in Beals and Jonesport

by Nancy Beal

Nearly a year ago, efforts began to merge the Wesleyan churches on either side of Moosabec Reach. The old structures (each over 100 years old) were debt-free, but attendance was down, especially on the island. During the last weekend of last January, a “merger exploration” was held, attended by the pastors, the governing bodies and the district supervisor. The following weekend, a town hall was held for anyone who wanted to listen to the proposal and ask questions.
