Worship Schedule
In lieu of in-person worship due to the current COVID-19 crisis, we are adding a "live" Sunday morning devotional option using Zoom, complete with a "virtual coffee hour," beginning at 10 am. This devotional time is not a complete worship service. We invite you to continue to access the excellently prepared pre-recorded worship on YouTube for the many elements of worship you look forward to. The advantage of the Zoom devotional time is the interactive opportunities, including time for conversation in small groups, using the "breakout rooms" feature. Please sign up for 10 am Sunday morning worship/devotional
time: The Zoom link will be sent at 8 am Sunday mornings, so please sign up before that time. 

Virtual (pre-recorded) weekly worship service goes “live” at 6 am Sunday mornings;
always available on Youtube click HERE

30 Days of Kindness
We are encouraging every child, teen, and adult, in our community to focus on demonstrating love and kindness! For the 30 days of November, we will share our theme of "Love Your Neighbor" with yard signs, random acts of kindness, and other ways to show love to our neighbors. You can pick your yard sign up at the church. Start showing your love with a yard sign, random acts of kindness, and then post positive messages on your social media! Be sure to tag Chelsea First UMC and use #loveyourneighbor! HERE for introduction, click HERE for a list of ideas.
