Outdoor Worship begins June 6
Come Join Us
In our home, there is always room at our table.
Starting Sunday, June 6th, we will worship outdoors in our beautiful Evelyn Hunt Outdoor Chapel, weather permitting. When we are outside, we will not need masks or six foot physical distancing. If you are more comfortable with a mask and keeping distance, of course, you can. If it is raining, we will worship indoors with masks but no longer a need for physical distancing. Outdoors, we cannot guarantee livestreaming--if we are able to provide it, it will only be on Facebook Live. Come praise the Lord!
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
"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 . . .
