Email Scam

We have become aware of an email scam that is specifically targeting United Methodist congregations across the U.S.  In most cases, a new email address is being created in the pastor's name and directed to members of the congregation.  These fake emails typically ask for money in the form of a gift card.  This email scam has hit multiple UMC congregations in Michigan and within other conferences as well.
 
Chelsea First United Methodist Church will NEVER ask for donations in the form of gift cards.  If you receive a suspicious email, please contact the church office at 475-8119, before sending money, buying gift cards or providing personal information.
