“Foundation” 8:45 am Traditional Worship – in the Sanctuary

8:45 Worship – Foundation is our liturgy based traditional worship service set in our beautiful sanctuary.  It is known for quality music from the Cantoria Choir and hand bell choir and hymnal music lead from the pipe organ and grand piano. Communion is served on the first Sunday of every month.

Chardon United Methodist Church has a legacy of faith and commitment to Chardon and its surrounding communities. It was the first Church in the city of Chardon and has continued to be a place of quality worship and community involvement.  Foundation, our 8:45 traditional worship service, is an extension of the rich tradition that Chardon UMC has built in its nearly 200 years of doing God’s work.  It is a worship service featuring all of the things that remind us of the glory and grace our savior Jesus Christ.  From hymnal led worship to communion on the first Sunday of each month.

Foundation offers a full Cantoria Choir, a hand bell choir and the organ and piano music of Pam White.  Pam, who has a degree in organ performance, is featured weekly on a pipe organ that was donated, in part, to Chardon UMC by Andrew Carnegie, so hymns echo through the beautiful sanctuary with all the majesty of their original design.  The Lord’s Prayer, the honoring of God’s Word read from the Good Book, and inspiring music are all a part of the worship experience.   All are welcome and all are valued as a members of Christ’s Kingdom.   Come join us any Sunday at 8:45 am.

Child care is available for Toddlers year round in a newly renovated toddler room with paid and volunteer staff who have all been background checked and have passed our Child Protection Training.   Sunday School is offered following the service at 10:00 am during the school year and is available for ages 3-adult.

“STRUCK” 10:00 am Modern Worship – in Hayden Hall

10:00 worship – STRUCK (Spending Time Reaching Up to Christ’s Kingdom) is a casual modern worship service set in a multi-purpose room.  It features a full band, WI-FI, video presentations and services planned around real-life connection.  It is Jesus centered worship open to any and all who long to know something more.

In 2006 several saints set out to create a Sunday morning worship service with a modern feel and an innovative style.  STRUCK (spending time reaching up to Christ’s kingdom) was born out of that passion and has continued to grow over the last eight years.  STRUCK is Jesus centered and strives to connect the teachings of the Bible to the lives of the people living in today’s world.  At Chardon United Methodist, we try to meet people where they are.

We offer a tech friendly, Wi-Fi ready worship setting with a modern theme and modern music. Feel free to take notes or look up scripture on you smart phones or tablets.  Scriptures, song lyrics and videos are projected on a big screen and the volume level won’t require earplugs but there is definitely a rock concert feel. The musicians of our house band, Reign Forecast, have been together for some time now and are able to lead worship with a passion, quality and energy not found in many churches of this size.

Don’t worry about fitting in, your style is probably just the style we need. On Sunday morning you can expect to find people wearing anything from flip flops and t-shirts to a jacket and tie.   If that doesn’t put you at ease, then just wear business casual for your first visit and you will fit right in.  Coffee is available (and encouraged) if you need that extra caffeine to boost your worship energy.

Child care is available for Toddlers year round in a newly renovated toddler room with paid and volunteer staff who have all been background checked and have passed our Child Protection Training.   During the school year we offer a Sunday School Program called FaithWeaver for ages 3-adult that runs at the same time as the STRUCK service.  You can sign your kids in at 9:45 to a fantastic bible learning experience, grab some coffee and have focused worship for yourself at 10:00.  During the summer months we offer a children’s church called SPARK where kids 3yrs-5th grade leave from our worship service to a kid friendly service of their own.

We encourage you to friend us on Facebook (www.facebook.com/getstruck) to keep up with what is going on here at Chardon UMC and we hope to see you Sunday morning!
