Welcome to Chardon United Methodist Church PDF Print E-mail

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.

6:30 pm - Seder Meal and Worship

Hayden Hall
On Thursday, April 2nd our congregation will have a very special worship experience and opportunity to celebrate Maundy Thursday.  We will have a meal catered by Nathan White.  It is offered without price, but a freewill offering will be received.  We want you to come, bring your family and eat with us as we remember the last supper that Jesus ate with his disciples.  We will remember how Jesus instituted the first service on Holy Communion.  Please sign up and let us know how many of you can attend this unique service of worship.  You can sign up at the welcome center, by e-mail or Facebook to Jen Zirm at Chardon UMC. Worship begins at 6:30pm in Hayden Hall.  The service is based upon the Gospel of John, Chapter 13.
Good Friday - April 3rd PDF Print E-mail
We offer two services during Good Friday:
Noon - 3:00 pm Service at Pilgrim Church on the Square:
“Seven Words from the Cross”
The Chardon Ministerial Association will sponsor a three hour service from Noon to 3:00pm at Pilgrim Christian Church on our Square.  The service remembers the “Seven Words from the Cross”, uttered by Jesus as he was dying for us.  Pastor Dan will be leading reflection on the last message of Jesus before he died. Come and share in this unique and powerful service.  Pastor Dan’s reflection will begin at about 2:30pm and bring the service to a close.  The reflection is upon the phrase, “Father into Thy hands, I commit My spirit.”
7:00 pm Tenebrae Service at Chardon UMC
The Service of Shadows tells the story of Jesus’ life and death in symbols, scripture and song.  This service is led by our Middle school youth and Confirmation class.  The Cantoria choir sings in our dramatic and moving sanctuary.  Invite a family member or friends and come prepare your heart, mind and soul for the Easter story and glory.
