Church of the Good Shepherd

The Episcopal Church in Rangeley, Maine

From Bishop Brown

Effective immediately, based on the Bishops recommendation, there will be no Sunday Service at the Church of the Good Shepherd until further notice!

Every faith community in the Diocese of Maine should suspend in-person worship, formation programs, and governance meetings until further notice (as of today, the Centers for Disease Control recommends against gatherings of 50 or more for the next eight weeks). However, we are not closing our churches: in fact, I encourage our congregations to explore options for providing limited access to our buildings for individual and private prayer (within the safe parameters of CDC guidelines).


The Rev. Benjamin Wetherill, Deacon

Hello!  I’m Deacon Ben and I look forward to worshipping with you.

My wife, Ana, our three daughters and I relocated to this marvelous community of Rangeley from California in 2002.

After receiving my Master of Divinity degree in 2008 from Asbury Theological Seminary, I was ordained as a Deacon
here at Good Shepherd. This has given me a great opportunity to serve this community.

Serving in youth ministry for the Episcopal Diocese of Maine was a wonderful experience, and  I am now honored to serve as the Maine state representative for the International Conference of Police Chaplains.

I have been in government service for over 30 years, serving as a Senior Patrol Agent with the U.S. Border Patrol, as a (now retired) Commander of the Coast Guard Reserve, and as the Sector Chaplain for the Border Patrol’s Houlton Sector.
