Opportunities For Spiritual Formation

Monday Noontime Bible Study Resumes April 9

Whether you’re brand-new to the Bible, or know it inside and out, you’re welcome! The group will meet each Monday from noon – 1:30 pm in Room 7. Feel free to bring your lunch or a snack, and feel free to bring a friend – whether or not they are part of CUMC. The group will decide on April 9 what part of the Bible we’ll explore. Questions? Contact Associate Pastor Sharon Yarger at scyarger@optonline.net or Dr. SuJung Shin at sshin@nbts.edu. Hope to see you there.

Taizè prayer

In the midst of the frenetic pace of news, work, life and stress, it is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the music, beauty, stillness, scriptures, and prayers of a Taizé Prayer Service. All are invited to come and enjoy the serenity.

All are invited to our Taizé Prayers on the second Wednesday of the month at 7:30PM at the Chatham UMC.
Next Taize Prayers: May 9, June 13 (Taize Prayer will resume in September 2018)

CUMC Happenings

Fire Pit and Friends

Friends in our church family and beyond are invited to gather around a fire pit on our church front lawn, sing songs, roast marshmallows, make s’mores, and enjoy fellowship and refreshments. Bring a lawn chair or blanket, bring a guitar or ukulele, and come Saturday, June 9th from 7:15-8:15pm!

This Fire Pit and Friends event is sponsored by the Chatham UMC Church Council.

Bags To Benches

Thanks Chatham UMC, Chatham Methodist Preschool-CMP and Chatham Community for your help in collecting 500 pounds of plastic bags!

We have met our goal! This takes roughly 500,000 plastic bags out of the ecosystem. The ultimate goal is to eliminate the need for plastic bags by using re-usable bags. 

Congratulations to St. Patrick Parish who reached their 500 lb. goal of recycling plastic film. The new Bags To Benches Drop Off site is St. Paul's located at 200 Main Street. The collection bin is located in the back of the church parking lot near the Library of the Chathams.

Thank you for helping us care for the Creation!
