We are approaching a new month and a new school year. Things are busy already, it is hard to believe Labor Day weekend is already here. I hope you all have a safe and eventful weekend with your friends and families and enjoy the cool weather.
I have to say how happy and proud I am to be a resident of Searsmont. In case some may have not seen, there is the most excellent write up on our beautiful little town in Downeast Magazine this month. The pictures and write ups depict how fortunate and blessed we are to be a resident here and the great job Downeast did to clearly help to make us “shine!”

Sunday School at the Searsmont United Methodist Church resumes - after summer recess - Sunday, September 7th. It is held during the 9 A.M. worship service; children remain in the sanctuary until their special story time by the Rev. George L. Hodgkins, Jr., then go downstairs to Fellowship Hall for Sunday School. They rejoin the congregation for the closing circle of blessing, and may be picked up around 10 A.M. by any parents who don't attend the worship service. (Refreshments are served at the end of the church service.) Bridget Winslow is Sunday School Superintendent; no pre-registration is required.
