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 behind the building at the doors of the Chatham Methodist Preschool. Thank you to members of the greater Chatham and Madison Community who have contributed.
  • Bread Ministry: If you would like to be involved in our Bread Ministry, please contact Edit Ostrom at: or
  • Communities of Care: Chatham UMC has recently set up Communities of Care for those who wish to receive a call, a text or an email from someone at the Chatham UMC community. If you would like to be in such a group, please email the church office by clicking here.
