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.

Our Worship for Holy Week PDF Print E-mail

Palm Sunday, April 13th

8:45 am
 “In My Place” a cantata remembering Christ’s Sacrifice of Love will be presented by the Cantoria Choir in the Sanctuary, directed by Linda Prusha. The cantata was written by Craig Courtney, with a Narrative by Pamela Stewart. The music is a distinctive blend of new melodies and creative hymn settings. The narrative focuses on the observations of five first hand witnesses of Christ’s final hours: Judas, Peter, the thief on the Cross, the Roman centurion, and a crowd member who called for Christ’s death. Bring a friend and prepare your heart for Easter!
10:00 am
The STRUCK service will be in Hayden Hall featuring the “Reign Forecast” band led by Paul Hagan. Pastor Paul will also bring the message for this Sunday as we enter Holy Week, reflecting on the last week of Jesus’ life.

Maundy Thursday, April 17th

6:00pm Supper in Hayden Hall
We will gather to remember Jesus’ last meal with His disciples by sharing a Memory Meal together, in which everyone brings a potluck dish that holds a fond memory for them. We will then celebrate with thanksgiving His gift of Communion to us through a drama called “The Last Supper”, complete with our own Communion.  Join us for a deeply moving time of remembrance with your whole family.

Good Friday, April 18th

12:00 noon to 3:00 pm
Community Good Friday Service at Pilgrim Christian Church
“The Seven Last Words of Jesus” The Chardon Ministerial Association will sponsor a new service this year. Seven area pastors will bring seven messages, from the seven phrases Jesus uttered while he was dying on the cross. The service is designed for you to come when you can and leave when you need to, even as the service is in progress. This is a community service so you can worship with neighbors and families of any denomination or church. Give a part of your “Good Friday” to hear a new word or message from Jesus.
7:00 pm
Tenebrae Service in our Sanctuary
This special service remembers the life and death of Jesus through the reading of the Holy Scriptures and the lighting of candles. It concludes with the bitterness of Jesus giving his life for our redemption and salvation. Prepare for Easter through this worship!
