On the Third Thursday of each month, we will meet at the Chatham UMC at 10:AM for a brief time of devotions and spiritual preparation.  We will then carpool to a nearby labyrinth where we can together walk and seek communion with God.  

Please pray for this new, yet ancient ministry, and come join us if you can!  Friends and seekers are most welcome to join us.  We’ll go out for lunch after our labyrinth walk to enjoy the community that the Holy Spirit will certainly create.
