Dear Friends,
The Midcoast Outreach and Peace Center operates under the capable leadership of Sue Rockwood as Coordinator. We strive to plan relevant activities to be staged at the Meeting House on a regular basis.

As Clerk of the Program Committee for MOPC, I invite members of the meeting and others to send me/us your suggestions for possible speakers or other programs that might be presented under the auspices of MOPC.

In addition to our own planned events the Midcoast Outreach and Peace Center has adopted the
Ecumenical Diaper Bank as an initiative to which we provide administrative and other support. Sue Rockwood, our Coordinator, is co-manager.  We also allowed a Diaper House to be built in the meetinghouse parking area for storage of diapers. For further information or to volunteer please click here.

Our Coordinator also helps to maintain an e-mail list and calendar for
People United Against Racism, an affiliation of churches, individuals, and other groups in our area who are committed to internal study and reflection about white privilege and racism, fostering dialogue in our community about dismantling racism, and engaging in public witness. Click here for more information.

I ask again to receive helpful suggestions for speakers or issue programs that might be held in the Meeting House in the future. You may know of someone suitable who will be in the area this summer or a local person who has recently had direct experience in relation to current issues of concern.

Please send me your ideas and suggestions so that we can consider them in timely fashion so as to build up our program outreach. Thank you.

The Peace Center grows from a commitment to peaceful ways to resolve conflict and ways of living that protect our natural environment. Through public dialogue in our Midcoast Maine communities we seek to understand and support policies and practices that promote peace and environmental justice.

Since its founding in 2008, The Center has convened public dialogues and held film series on U.S. foreign engagements in conflicts in the Middle East, Central America and Asia, on issues of sustainable farming and fishing in Maine and on alternative energy resources in Maine. These programs are convened in collaboration with like-minded groups and congregations. Each gathering seeks to share personal and professional concerns and to take collective initiatives to witness and strengthen our community commitments to peace and environmental justice.
