The Outreach ministry encourages participation in ministries that care for the hungry, the poor, those affected by natural disaster such as tsunamis and hurricanes, and care for those who are in need.  Below are just some of the outreach ministries Chatham UMC is currently involved in.

Volunteers are always needed for our Outreach Ministry.

  • Pop Up Outdoor Food Pantry:

Take what you need or leave what you can at our two pantry shelves. The shelves are now located across from the CMP Playground and are winter ready!

Join Us in creating our Online Worship

We are hoping that you can send in one or more videos that can be filmed in a few seconds on your smart phone:

1) A video of you dropping a leaf, and saying what you’d like to let go of. For some this might be: worries, anxiety, resentment, sadness, old hurts, old failures, or even “the year 2020!” There is no wrong answer.

2)A video of wind chimes that you may have outside your home, or in your neighborhood.

3) A video of you, and or your family looking in the camera and saying: “Peace be with you.”

Please take these videos holding your phone in a horizontal position so that it takes up the whole screen when edited. Please add one or two seconds before and after you speak so that it can be edited in with other videos in the online worship experience.

Please sent these videos to Jeff Markay at, or text the video to my cell phone: 973-769-5266.

We Need Online Liturgists! We’re reaching out to all church members for pre-recorded Gospel readings through the Fall. (Please remember to film Sunday’s Gospel message by the previous Tuesday!)
