The Chatham UMC Church Council has unanimously adopted a Statement of Welcome. Despite the actions of the General Conference of the United Methodist Church, we continue to believe in the gracious, inclusive, and unquestionable love of God for all people and all of creation. We wholeheartedly support the following Statement of Welcome, as our humble attempt to reflect the best of Methodist spirituality.
Chatham UMC Statement of Welcome
Chatham UMC will be gathering for a time of prayer and community every Sunday at 10am in person. We will enjoy coffee, food and fellowship at 11am, followed by Christian Education and Spiritual Formation at 11:10am. Our building has air circulation and ventilation units throughout our building which circulate the air through UV light and HEPA air purifiers which make our building extremely safe.

We are sending two teams to represent Chatham UMC on this year's RISE mission trip. Their goal will be to help make homes safer, warmer and drier in northern Appalachia. This is the 41st year of sending teams from Chatham UMC. It has been a mutual blessing for those who are giving and receiving for every youth and adult who have participated in this vital ministry.
We are in need of some serious fundraising support. We need to raise over $9,000 each year to send two teams to RISE for a week.
