elementary students

It is our hope that elementary aged kids will join the gathered community for worship at Chatham UMC at 8:15 or 10:45 am.  We love having kids in worship and want to make sure kids know that this is a church where they belong. There are activities for children as you enter in the main sanctuary entrance to the right. If your kids draw pictures and leave them on the clip boards after worship – we include them in our mailings to our home-bound members.
