Happening Now at Chatham UMC

Giving something up for Lent is a common practice for the 40-day season leading up to Easter. Sometimes what we choose to give up is something we truly do need to strip from our lives. We have a tendency however to give things up for the wrong reasons or to serve our own convenience. Giving up things like diet soda (or soda in general), coffee or sweets are okay things to give up but is giving up something like sweets helping us become more Christlike or is it a convenient excuse to lose a couple pounds before Easter rolls around? 

Instead, what if this Lent, we give up something that will enable us to become more like the Christ we are following to the cross?

What if we actually let something in our lives die in order to enjoy the resurrection life God promises more fully? 

Coming Up at Chatham UMC

This March our Upper Room Sunday school class will begin a two month series focusing on parenting kids of all ages. If you have children, this will be a conversation you will not want to miss. We'll be using Brene Brown's resource called "The Gifts of Imperfect Parenting" as our guide. 

There is no book to buy or homework ahead of each discussion session.  For more info contact Susan Jakoby at
