Growing by Half: Part-time Pastor, Full-time Church
A collaboration of the Maine Conference UCC and The BTS Center
This year’s Convocation will be held at two venues, which are less than 4 miles apart:
- The Mariner’s Church Banquet Center, right in the heart of the Old Port.
- Southern Maine Community College (Jewett Hall), on the water in South Portland.
Because Convocation 2018 is not at a hotel conference center this year, you will be responsible for finding your own lodging. The Google map link below lists hotels in the Portland area. There is a wide range of price points, and while more expensive near the Old Port where we will meet Friday and Sunday morning, affordably priced rooms can be found reasonably close to both our venues.
At this year’s Convocation, the Friday and Saturday evening meals will be on your own. We hope you will find this to be a treat, a chance to break bread with old or new friends. For those who aren’t familiar with the amazing variety of dining options — cuisine, cost, and closeness to our venues — we hope the Google map link below will be helpful. You’ll find information ratings, reviews, pricing, and location to fit just about any appetite and budget. The registration fee includes beverages and break time snacks, a box lunch on Saturday, and a light continental breakfast on Sunday.
