The Winthrop United Methodist Church
exists as part of multiple communities:
our local community, as we have members of our congregation from Winthrop, Readfield, Monmouth and beyond;
as well as our membership in local spiritual communities including the Jesse Lee Cluster and the Winthrop Area Ministerial Association;
our global community, including our Sister Church in Nicaragua and our work with Heifer International and Nothing But Nets;
and our connections to fellow United Methodists, including UMCOR, Tres Dias weekends, Camp Mechuwana, and The Upper Room Devotional.
Bible Gateway: the Bible, searchable by passage or topic, in a variety of versions and languages. A very valuable resource.
