MINISTRIES OF CHANDLER UNITED METHODIST CHURCH

“The Mission of the Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ,” so states the United Methodist Book of Discipline.  The people of Chandler United Methodist church strive, with God’s help, not only to embrace  that  mission, but also to be embraced by that mission. How do we do that? Again, with God’s help, we seek to love God fully and to love our neighbors as ourselves. And who are our neighbors? From Jesus we learn that our neighbors are not limited to those people with whom we are acquainted, feel comfortable, agree, or even like. We choose to be neighbors as we serve those in need in Jesus’ name.

We are Chandler’s first church – in our eleventh decade of sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with people who live around the corner and around the world. Wherever you may be on your spiritual journey, there is  a place for you at Chandler United Methodist Church.

Each person is called to ministry by virtue of his or her baptism, and that ministry takes place in all aspects of daily life, both in and outside of the church.
