Featured Upcoming Event
Graduation Sunday May 29, 2016
Connect with others with similar interests, so you can “do life” together.
We are all about relationships, growth, and mission as we learn and experience what it really means to follow Jesus as a student.
We pray that you sense the Lord’s presence richly and will allow Him to draw that gift out of you as you begin to serve.
Our staff welcomes you and wants to serve you. We want you to know them and to openly contact them.
We believe we have three of the best pastors who deliver a powerful message with their sermons every week. Their sermons are linked on this Web page so that you can listen each and every week in the comfort of your home. We hope you enjoy our sermons, and pray that Jesus touches you through His word.
Join us as we worship God at 8:45am and 10:00am each Sunday morning. We encourage you to think about the following future topics, during your preparation to hear God’s word.
- 5.22.2016 – Rejoice: God celebrates us, and we can celebrate too. We get to choose. Will you celebrate with your loving God? The Prodigal shows us.
- 5.29.2016 – Going Places: Summer is here and vacation is near, but do we know where we are going? What happens when God changes our plans? Are you Going Places?
We celebrate the graduation of our High School seniors on May 29th. Seniors should email their pictures to Jen Zirm. Our youth are also preparing a Youth Mission Breakfast, so plan to join us for breakfast before or after your service, and help support our youth program.
Sunday, June 5 @ 10:00am
Big Creek Park / Maple Grove Shelter
Our STRUCK service will be held in God’s beautiful outdoors on June 5 at 10:00, and we’ll give thanks for our wonderful Sunday School teachers and children! Then we’ll celebrate with a picnic after worship, hosted by your Children’s ministry team! More details to come; but mark your calendars now!
Our Appalachia Service Project (ASP) will be in Kentucky this year. We will be leaving Saturday, July 16th for a “fun day along the way”. On Sunday, we will proceed to our ASP center and prepare for our week of service and fellowship. We return on Saturday, July 23.
We are recruiting our team members, which are youth who are in High School this year or entering 9th grade next year. ASP is a lot of fun and yet we accomplish much for the families we support. This is a life-changing mission for our youth. If you know of someone that is interested in joining the team, please contact John Eltzroth at 440.479.1300 or email@example.com.
Office will be closed on Monday, May 30th in observance of Memorial Day!
It has been a long time between updates, but I have fabulous news about Caring Cards! We have currently been able to donate $1,910.00 to the Masindi Education Fund just by making cards! It is a miracle!!! Thanks be to God!
Now to entice you to our carousel, we continually have cards for sympathy, get well, thank you, birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, etc. Think about what you might need this month for a family or friend. I would also encourage you to pick someone from our prayer concern list and send a “thinking about you” card. We have just added cards for FATHER’S DAY also. Don’t wait too long! As a reminder, we ask for a $2 donation per card. There is a container behind the card carousel to just drop the money in. If you are interested in joining our growing card team, our next workshop will be on June 6th from 10-12:00 in Fellowship Hall.
Blessings to all, The Caring Cards Team
Along with our mentors and Confirmation teachers, big thanks go to Jen Scerbo, our Mentor Coordinator! She served so faithfully and with such joy — we were truly blessed by her!
Short-term serving opportunity for those who find joy in children & love the Lord! An organizer & helpers are needed for our summer Sunday School program, beginning in June. We have planning options, resources, and three people to guide your programming, but need the adult servants to implement! If you are interested, please contact the church office.
Our Latest Achievements in Progress
- Goal towards our ASP mission trip 59%
Appalachia Service Project
Our youth have been working hard all year raising funds by serving breakfasts and a Christmas dinner. We are still short of our goal of $6,000. We have a breakfast on May 29 (senior day) and a “garden bench” auction coming in June. Please help us raise funds for our mission trip by supporting these two events or making a donation.
- Goal towards our Mortgage Paydown 61%
Near the end of 2011, our church launched an initiative to pay off our mortgage. We had a very successful capital campaign and was successful paying down and refinanced our mortgage. Our membership then agreed to purchase our North campus property and continue to pay down the mortgage. God is good. Our mortgage is now lower than it has been in nearly 20 years.
If you are looking for a way to reach out, for reasons to come in, or for a faith community near you … our hearts, minds, and doors are always open. We all share a faith in Jesus Christ, but the Church encourages us to think for ourselves, so we don’t necessarily share the same opinions about every faith issue or social concern. We aren’t striving to be all the same, but we are striving to work together to make a significant difference in the world. Our services and missions are as diverse as our membership. The Chardon United Methodist Church is alive with family involvement, as you can see from browsing our website. We welcome you to visit any of our traditional or contemporary services or to participate in any of our activities.
To make and mature Disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the World.
To Love like Jesus, Learn His ways, and Lead by His example
