Come Join Us

In our home, there is always room at our table.

"Charlton City UMC knows that living through the Covid-19 pandemic has been a great challenge, as we have had to wonder if and when we will be able to live life normally.  So we want you to know you are welcome--you are always welcome to join us for worship in person.  We will continue to wear face masks, physical distance, encouraging hand washing and that we consider vaccination.  Whoever and wherever you are, let us join to praise God from the heights and the valleys--Alleluia!"

Charlton City United Methodist Church has been part of the Charlton community since the 1790s, with a rich history deeply rooted in the town. Our mission statement has always been to be a Bible centered community, growing in faith and sharing the love of Jesus Christ with our neighbors.  Wherever you are in your faith journey, you are welcome here.

Pastor John Lucy

Leading Our Prayers

"Hello, my name is John H.D. Lucy, and I'm the pastor here at Charlton City UMC.  I'm originally from Hudson, MA, before I met my wife, Danielle, at St. Michael's College in Vermont and then completed my studies at Wesley Theological Seminary in D.C.  Danielle and I have been married since 2014 and have two cute, funny, shy but loving boys named Sebastian and Soren.  I'm essentially a teenage convert to faith in Christ and I tried running away from the call God placed on my life to be a pastor.  So I come to faith from a place of doubt and skepticism, of intellectual questioning.  I know that God can handle our questions and doubts; I know that God loves us even when we wander; I know that God seeks the lost.  God is good.  And I will love nothing more than walking with you on your journey, wherever it has taken you so far, to find and experience the fullness of God's grace.  I'm looking forward to meeting you, chatting with you, and praying with and for you."  More . . .

“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.”                 Isaiah 60:1
