Welcome to Green Street UMC's virtual front door.
WELCOME REV. ANGELA ROTHERHAM and PASTOR MAUREN JULIÃO
A word from our new pastors about themselves:
Rev. Angela Rotherhamgraduated with honors from Mount Holyoke College in 1998. Since 1999 she has chosen to live and work in Maine performing a wide variety of jobs before answering her call to ministry. She received a Master of Divinity from Bangor Theological Seminary in 2011. She served one year as a student pastor at the Hampden Highlands UMC, served the Orono UMC for a year as their Sunday School Superintendent, started her first appointment as a Local Pastor in 2010 at Corinna UMC, was commissioned and appointed to Peaks Island from 2012-2019, and was serving the Wayne Community Church when called to Green Street and the River Churches Cooperative Parish. Her husband Dan, is from England and is a driver and warehouse worker for a car-part distribution company. They have two cats, Penny & Jinx, whom they adore as their fur babies.
Pastor Angela writes “I am excited about this appointment to the River Churches Cooperative Parish because it has the potential of helping us all return to our Methodist roots. At one time, the local church belonged to the community and the people who lived there; a pillar in the community that everyone knew they could lean on when times were tough and a place to celebrate life’s precious milestones. Together we will get to define what it means to flourish, to have vital and healthy ministries, and to connect with a vision of being part of Christ’s ONE body.”
Pastor Mauren Julião is from Brazil, where she served the Methodist Church for more than 20 years as a pastor’s wife and lay member of the church, six of them as a local pastor. She had a missionary experience in the Brazilian Amazon, where she helped plant a church and worked training members and evangelists. Teaching is an emphasis in her ministry, and she has produced biblical studies for adults and young adults within the National Sunday School Department in Brazil for six years. Writing is one of her passions. She also loves to listen to people, pray, and work with discipleship. In the U.S. she has been serving Brazilian communities as a lay member and pastor’s wife, working with women’s ministry, training, and food pantries coordination. Her husband, Reverend Marcos Antonio Julião is an Elder from the United Methodist Church in Brazil. He will be the new pastor at Wayne Community UMC.
Pastors Angela and Mauren will be serving the River Churches Cooperative Parish which includes Green Street UMC, Cox Memorial UMC in Hallowell, Highland Avenue UMC in Gardiner, Randolph UMC, East Pittston UMC and Dresdon Richmond UMC.Welcome to Green Street UMC's virtual front door.

Green Street Prayer Squares and Prayer Shawls have been shared with visitors, sent to friends in the hospital, given out in airports, and offered to those looking for a piece of hope to hold onto. Prayer Squares and Shawls are knitted by the Prayer Shawl Ministry Team, who pray for the persons who will ultimately receive them. Squares are knitted in a rainbow of colors and each one has a cross in the middle. If you would like to receive one, or know someone who would, contact the church!
The United Methodist Economic Ministry in Western Maine (UMEM) provides vital services and support to neighbors on the margins.
