There's always something happening at Chillicothe UMC. Here are a few of the next events.

All Events

The 2018 Buddy Bag program will start again soon at the end of May. It is a VERY BIG summer undertaking and Tony Clark of the Sliced Bread Market is a HUGE help to us by getting us a good price for our food and making sure the food is delivered directly to the church. Now, with help from the entire church, we will be trying something new this year. We will be packing ALL OF THE BAGS FOR THE ENTIRE SUMMER ON ONE NIGHT! On Saturday evening, May 19, at 7 p.m. we are inviting anyone who would like to help to meet in the CLC to pack the bags all in one evening for the entire summer. Basically this averages out to 55 bags per week or a total of 715 bags. SO WE NEED YOUR HELP! Please mark your calendars and help spread the Light of Christ to these children in need. If you would like to donate to Buddy Bags, please send your offering to the church office or place it in the offering plate, making sure to note that your gift is designated to the Buddy Bag program. Thank you!
