Our mission is to glorify God and make disciples for the transformation of the world.


  We glorify God in our regular and special worship services.  Bible Study and other special studies help us to grow spiritually.   Our Chelsea Community Food Table  provides prayer, food, and fellowship for our food insecure neighbors since spring 2016.  And our Super Saturdays provide sports, arts, music, snacks and Bible fun for area children.


Our community is made up of all types of people, but we are all one in Christ.

Thanks be to God!

"There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus."

Galatians 3:28

UMC Christmas Shoebox Ministry! 

Our ladies gathered to fill 25 shoeboxes, which United Methodist missionaries will share with children in Panama and Honduras as part of the UMC Christmas Shoebox Ministry.  We hope the children were excited to find the gifts and the hand-written notes in their own languages telling them about Jesus. We were blessed as we filled the boxes with flip-flops, dinosaurs, dolls, Hot Wheels. . . the list goes on and on!  Thanks to all of you who helped make this project a success!

“I will bless you

so you will be a blessing.”  Genesis 12:2

Methodist services on Yellow Leaf Creek began about 1818 when circuit riders preached in the log cabins of the settlers.  In 1837, Alfred Musgrove Lester donated the land on which the first building known as Lesters Chapel was built.  We celebrate our bicentennial birthday this year, and we also look forward to an exciting future of loving God and loving each other.  (Click here for more historical information.)
