Maine has a small, but growing, Amish presence. Learn more from the links below!
The way it was explained to me is that the Amish in these communities don’t want several church districts bunched together as is typically the case. These Amish want their communities to serve as “beacons” in various places. While the Amish don’t traditionally evangelize, some Amish do like to “serve as witnesses” or “lead by example.” So while they maybe won’t reach out and try to convert, they want their communities to serve as positive examples to outsiders. Unity does not have its own bishop yet, the settlement is not large enough, so the bishop in Smyrna also is in charge of Unity.
