On March 12th, We Celebrated Our 18th Anniversary as a Reconciling Congregation

To mark this special occasion, Pastor Joel invited a longtime mentor to preach and, after
worship, to converse with any and all who might want to explore the prospects for the full
inclusion of LGBTQ Christians in The United Methodist Church. Bishop S. Clifton Ives was born in
Farmington, ME, and as the son of a United Methodist minister, lived in seven different Maine
communities while growing up. He graduated from the University of Maine and from Boston
University School of Theology, with both a Master of Divinity degree and later the Doctor of
Ministry in Church and Society. Dr. Ives was ordained both deacon and elder by Bishop James K.
Mathews and served for thirty years in the former Maine Annual Conference, including pastorates
at Cape Elizabeth, Bangor, Waterville, and Westbrook. Cliff was also appointed for several
years as director of the Conference Council on Ministries and later as Superintendent of the
Southern District.
