Our Latest Achievements in Progress

  • Goal towards our Mortgage Paydown 65%

Mortgage Paydown

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.

Chardon United Methodist ChurchWelcome to Chardon United Methodist Church

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.

Our Mission

To make and mature Disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the World.

Our Vision

To Love like Jesus, Learn His ways, and Lead by His example
