Support the Edgecomb Community Church Steeple Fund
The Edgecomb Community Church (ECC) has been at its present location at 15 Cross Point Road, Edgecomb since 1881. A prominent local landmark, this historic church has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1987. The Edgecomb Community Church steeple is a symbol and beacon of hope, helping those in need.
The ECC recently began a campaign to raise funds to repair the steeple which has suffered structural damage. We church has requested support from various foundations, church members, friends and neighbors. A $15,000 matching grant was awarded from the Maine Steeple Fund managed by the Maine Community Foundation in Ellsworth, Maine. To date we have raised $21,500 toward our goal of $35,000. Repairs, by Mid Maine Restoration in conjunction with G&E Roofing Co., will begin later this year.
As the only active church in Edgecomb, we support the community, the penninsula and Lincoln County in many ways. Following are a few examples:
- Free weekly lunches for the public
- Support for the Eldercare Network of Lincoln County
- Fuel assistance for the peninsula
- Support for Abused Women
- Tedford Shelter in Brunswick
- Habitat for Humanity
- Boothbay Region Food Pantry
- Boothbay Region Community Resource Council
