Opportunities For Spiritual Formation
Advent Begins December 3rd - So do Advent Small Groups!
We're excited to offer a seasonal opportunity to grow in faith - deepening our relationships with God and one another by being part of a small group. We'll be using the DVD-based study Way of Life, based on Brian McLaren's book The Great Spiritual Migration. Participants will learn how shifting away from a system of beliefs to a new way of life based on love can lead to new, more redemptive communities and practices. Guaranteed to be a thought-provoking and engaging experience with fellow pilgrims on the journey of faith!
Small Groups will begin the week of December 3rd, and will meet on various days and times to accommodate a range of schedules. Dates are listed below. Signup sheets will be available outside Pastor Jeff's office, and books will be available for purchase. For further information contact Associate Pastor Sharon Yarger at the church office or at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Chatham UMC, and other communities of faith in the Chatham area, are partnering with Acme in New Providence and Trex to collect and remove 500 lbs. of plastic film from our environment. Once our goal is achieved, Trex will gift the Chatham community with a bench made from recycled plastic. How To Participate:
Simply collect and bring your plastic bags/film to CUMC (460 Main Street). Blue Receptacles have been labeled for plastic bag recycling. Receptacles are located at the front entrance on Main Street and at the rear entrance to the building. We accept bags/film that are "clean", no residue, trash or waste inside or on the plastic. Click Here for a printable flier for more details and to pass on to your friends and family. Spread the word and help us meet our goal!
Recycling Tip of the Week: Are you planning on donning your Holiday best for your upcoming parties and gathering? When they come back from the dry cleaners, save the plastic wrap and bring them to recycle!
Thank you for helping us care for the Creation!
