Parking Lot Protocols:


PLEASE PARK IN THE DESIGNATED SPOTS MARKED WITH YELLOW.

The worship service begins at 9 a.m. (to beat the heat!).

The worship service will be in the Cheshire UMC parking lot.

Cars will be directed (by our very intimidating parking crew) to park in every other lined parking space, for social distancing purposes.

The open space between your car and the next is for you and your household, if you’d like to bring lawn chairs and sit out in that empty spot (with face masks on).

You’ll be able to hear everything through your FM radio, so you control the sound.  Warning: if you mute me during the sermon, I can tell.

The bathrooms inside the church will be disinfected before the service, and will be available (for emergencies).  The room will be disinfected by our cleaning team after each use.  One person at a time please.

You’ll be encouraged to use your car horn throughout the service.  I suggest letting the kids in the car “man” the horn so that they can make a joyful noise unto the Lord!


 


  




Who We Are...

We are a church family that welcomes everyone through our doors no matter the political affiliation, no matter which forms of Christian thought you hold, no matter what - you are welcome here  because we are all members of the family of God.  


Like other families, we may not always agree on everything, but we are called to love one another enough to forgive one another, respect our differences, and work and minister together as we spread and live out the Gospel message of God’s love offered to this world in the form of Jesus Christ, our risen Lord and Savior.  


To this end, we aspire to do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with our God (Micah 6:8).  


Meet our Staff and Ministry Leaders

In whom we believe...

We believe in God – the Creator, Redeemer and Sustainer of our lives and this world. 


We believe in Jesus Christ and in the redemptive, restorative power of his death upon the cross. 


We believe in the presence of the Holy Spirit, who lives and dwells among us - moving us to prayer and praise, inspiring us to work for peace and justice, and equipping us to become the disciples that God has called and gifted us to be. 

Who we serve...


We serve a good and perfect God, who calls us to be in ministry to all.  

Mission endeavors here - UMARMY, Shelter Now, ongoing food drive for the Cheshire Food Pantry, UMCOR special offerings, flood buckets. 

What We Believe...

We Follow Jesus Christ

and His Loving Example.

Because inclusiveness has always been a core value of the Cheshire United Methodist Church, we are a Welcoming and Reconciling congregation. That means we embrace diversity and affirm the dignity and worth of every person - because we have all been created by the same loving God. We seek to live out Christ's call for compassion, justice, healing and wholeness. Therefore, we welcome into our faith community persons of every race, gender, age, sexual orientation, nationality, ethnicity, marital status, mental and physical ability, economic and social position, gender identity and expression, level of education, and family structure. We strongly believe that we can all love alike, even if we don't all think alike. We invite all to share in the life, leadership, lay and ordained ministry, worship and sacraments, the covenant of committed love in holy matrimony, fellowship, blessings and joys of our congregation as we seek to grow together in faith and love.
