History & Values
IMG_2511 (1).jpg


We are a church dedicated to extending Jesus' welcome to every person. Our mood is hopeful, our spirit is uplifting. As we gather to sing hymns from our rich heritage, to pray for healing of people and the earth, and to hear an inspiring message from our pastor, we are thankful for our legacy and for Christ's call to lovingly serve God and neighbor. In response to that call, we cheerfully support both global and local outreach to people in need.


Rev. Dr. Tim LeConey, the youngest of five children, grew up in southern New Jersey in an American Baptist church and went to Drew University in Madison, NJ. While working at Camp Oceanwood in Ocean Park, Maine, during his college years, he met his future wife, Mary, and discovered a call to ministry. Tim attended Andover Newton Theological School and received a Master of Divinity in 2000, the same year that he was ordained as a minister in the United Church of Christ. Tim served as Associate Pastor of the First Congregational Church of Essex Junction, Vermont, for five years and then Pastor of the First Congregational Church of Fryeburg, Maine, for ten years. In 2013, Tim graduated from Bangor Seminary with a doctorate in ministry. Mary is an Occupational Therapist with Androscoggin Home Health.  Tim and Mary have three children: Liam, 26; Ben, 23, and Evan, 18, and one grandchild, Lincoln, 2. Tim enjoys hiking, nordic skiing, running, reading, listening to music, and singing.

Elizabeth Smith is from upstate New York and was raised in the Methodist church having three generations of Methodist ministers preceding her. She went to S.U.N.Y. at Plattsburgh and then onto Boston University to work on a M.M. in Piano Performance. Having been in a car accident and needing a good year to heal, she decided to try Music Education. Fast forward 37 years, and Liz has taught Pre-K through college in Massachusetts and Maine with most experience in elementary education, chorus, and band. She has been a member of MENC, AOSA, Bethel Community Band, and ChoralArt. Liz is presently serving as organist, recording hymns for the on-line service, and accompanying at the West Parish Congregationalist Church. She and her husband, Jonathan, a fellow music teacher, have two adult children, Simon and Anneliese, who both surprisingly decided to study Music Education. Liz enjoys swimming, kayaking, hiking, biking, tap dance, reading, playing the piano, flute, singing, and best of all- time with family.
