Our Mission


Broad Bay seeks to serve God and follow Christ as a progressive church in the greater Waldoboro area. Broad Bay’s ministry is to the community at large. We welcome people in times of crisis and celebration, seek partnerships with other community organizations, and work to share God’s love and acceptance. We welcome and celebrate people of every age, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, religious background, economic circumstance, and mental or physical ability to the spiritual life of the church as we join in sharing the life, leadership, and ministry of Broad Bay.  

A member of the United Church of Christ, Broad Bay covenants with local and national church bodies while also participating in a worldwide interfaith community.

Our Pastor

Reverend Nancy Duncan has served Broad Bay since 2004. A family therapist, she worked with at risk children for over 15 years. Nancy said, “People are searching for hope and transformation. Whatever their circumstance, I want people to know they are not alone.”
