Lincoln, Cumberland churches may merge

January 20, 2011

LINCOLN — Even now, the portable rental marquee sign sitting in the snow outside the Christ Church Parish House reads, in part, “Christmas joy continues.”
“We haven't been able to change it because of the weather, the way it's been,” chuckled Rev. Scott Gunn, the Episcopal church's rector for over three years now.
Fact is, neither Gunn nor his parishioners have had much to celebrate lately. Due to serious financial hardships, he has asked his congregation to vote on Jan 30 to accept a merger with Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Cumberland Hill.
