Announcements for the week of
Changes to live worship sites and times on June 13th
We’ve had a great season of regathering in person while many folks are still enjoying the online experience. As we move into the summer, Woods Charter has agreed to let us return to worship there on Sunday mornings starting June 13th. Starting that day, we will have Sunday morning services at Woods Charter and under the tent at Chatham Mills. Service time will be 9:30; this earlier worship time will be especially beneficial for the outdoor experience under the tent because it helps us to beat the heat.
Woods Charter will be indoors and they are requiring that we wear masks. Chatham Mills will continue to be outdoors as a mask-optional service. Glad for you to wear a mask, glad for you not to wear a mask. We'll have great children's programming, music, and live preaching at both of these locations. Of course, we will continue to have our online service for those who aren't quite ready to return. Our online service is also moving to 9:30 on June the 13th.
Please help us to spread the word and we look forward to seeing you at one of those locations this summer!
We just can't wait to be with you again!
Chatham Serves on June 19th
We love our community and we’re always looking for ways to serve and bless it. A couple of times a year we invite our whole church to rally together for a few hours of service.
Our next Chatham Serves is on Saturday, June 19th. We’ll have signups for projects across the community and our new plan for this Chatham Serves is we’re going to host a blood drive with a mobile unit coming to Pittsboro.
Look for more details coming soon or head on over to www.chathamserves.org.
Where in the World is Chatham Community Church?
As we head into summertime we know that lots of you will be traveling--and we want to invite you to make church online a part of your vacation plans. Every Sunday morning during our online service during the summer we’re going to invite you to check in from wherever you might be traveling.
And each week we’ll put a pin in our map of all the places you’re checking in from and see how our map gets populated with pins over the course of the summer.
So wherever you are going this summer, join our online service on our YouTube channel and let us know where you are and we’ll start to build our ‘where in the world is Chatham Community church’ map.
Make Room for Summer Better!
During the small group break, we're offering a handful of classes, seminars, and workshops to help us “Make Room” for God to work in our lives this summer. These will be in-person experiences and we are working towards making them available online so you can join wherever you happen to be. If you are new to the area, new to Chatham Community Church, or have never been part of a small group, Summer Better will give you a great chance to make some new connections. Sign-ups will go live on June 13 at www.summerbetter.org.
Small Groups Sign-Ups Are Live!
One of the things most needed in this season is ongoing connection to people who care for you and with whom you can grow. Small groups have always been an essential part of Chatham Community Church and they’ve only become more important since COVID started. These groups of around 6-16 people meet mostly online, though some meet outdoors in safe ways. Together, they encourage each other, pray, study the Bible, serve, and have fun. This is a great time to check out a small group! If you’re not involved in a Small Group, invitation today: try one. You can go to our website to find one or email Jaime@chathamchurch.org.
Mosaic Middle School Youth Group This Week
We will host middle school students in-person on Sundays from 5:30-7:00 pm, at the Chatham Mills Ministry Space. The event will be held outdoors under an open tent. We will NOT be hosting a simultaneous Zoom gathering this week.
Since we’ll be outside as much as possible, we’d like to encourage all students to dress appropriately for the weather! The plan is to gather outside, move inside for teaching/discussion (masks required!), then go back outside for games.
We are taking a number of safety precautions to ensure the health and safety of our students and volunteers. If you have any questions about the health and safety guidelines we are utilizing for this event, please reach out to the Mosaic leaders at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Relevant This Week
Relevant, our weekly Bible study for high school students, will resume meeting in-person on Tuesdays from 6:30-8:00 pm. If you have any questions about the health and safety guidelines we are utilizing for this event, please reach out to Mosaic leaders at email@example.com. Also, students who attend should bring a mask in case we go inside for any reason.
