Youth Mission Breakfast October 16, 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.
- 10.02.2016 – “Great Expectations” We cannot repay God, so we live in His grace, forgiveness and empowerment.
- Scripture-Luke 17: 5-10

Thank you to all of those whom have donated so generously during our monthly “Sweet Dreams” Story Time. Together we have been able to purchase baby bottles, baby wipes and infant clothing for those in need.
The “In Stitches” group has been asked by Grace Hospice to make “fidget quilts” for their patients. It is a lap blanket that has things to do, look at, or feel. We will need zippers, shoe laces, and fabric with different textures –satin, fuzzy, flannel, lace, fleece and blue jeans. The fabrics must be washed. Thank you for all your donations. Helen Moon
Our Latest Achievements in Progress
- Goal towards our Mortgage Paydown 65%
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.
- Raising $2,500 for the Geauga County CROP Hunger Walk 0%
Sunday, September 25th Geauga County Fairgrounds
- 1:30 pm – Registration
- 1:45 pm – Walk
Walk. Give. Change the world.
Prayerfully consider how you can come and walk with others to support those who are hungry in Geauga County and other places in the world. Register on line at crophungerwalk.org/burtonoh. Ask for pledges, by reaching out to your friends and family through social media, email, or phone. If you aren’t able to walk, find someone on our team that you can support. See Lydia Sandoval or Lynn Kempf for more information. Help us to end hunger one step at a time!
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
