Return to Virtual Worship
Starting August 2nd, all worship and Sunday school services will go online. We will post our church services online through the church website at chairesumc.com at our normal service time of 10am on Sunday mornings.
We ask for your understanding for this decision and know that it was not done lightly. The Church Council would love nothing more than to continue in-person services, but the safety of our Church Family comes first. The Council will continue to monitor the health situation and when it is determined safe to hold in-person services again we will. We ask for all to continue prayers for the Church, our state and country that an end to this pandemic comes quickly so that we may come back together in Church to worship Christ again.
Adult Sunday School
The Adult Sunday School Class will be virtually each Sunday at 9 AM. To participate via phone, the dial-in number is 508-924-1895. A special “thank you” to Lynn and Jerry Mulder for facilitating the Sunday School class.
Madison Youth Ranch Hurricane Season Pantry Items:
The MYR is requesting items to stock their pantry. Bottled water (multi-pack), AA & A batteries, easy-open fruit, vegetable, and meat (shelf stable), saltine crackers, vanilla wafers, peanut butter, pickles, kid-friendly cereals, and cereal bars. There is also a need for activity/craft kits the children can put together in free time. Contact Evelyn Brown @ 766-2947 for more information.
Neva Holland has requested that all ECHO donations made at church cease due to the present virus situation. She will let everyone know when to resume bringing donations. If you would like to make a monetary donation, please mail it directly to ECHO, 548 E. Bradford Road, Tall., FL 32303
Refuge House Needs
Refuge House needs deodorant, socks, toothpaste, and hotel size toiletries. Please leave your donation on the table in the adult Sunday School room. If you would like to be part of this outreach, please see Margaret Boyette or Jean Ingram.
Pavilion/Audio Visual Update
Please continue to pray and give as the Lord leads you. Through your financial contributions and prayers, enough funds were raised to update our audio/visual system to enable us to live-stream our Worship Services with better clarity and sound. We still need $7,000 to complete the Pavilion near where the Maggie Patterson house was. This pavilion will allow the church to provide more outreach services/programs to the community so we can share the love of Christ to others in our community of Chaires. For detailed information on the structure and how it will be utilized please speak with Marty Holland or Gordon Lightfoot.
