The Mission Statement for Chatham Serves is:
To make the goodness of God known to the people of Chatham County by partnering with individuals and organizations in Chatham County who share our heart to serve our neighbor's needs.
Chatham Serves Foundational Scriptures: Matthew 25:35-40, Mark 12:29-31, and Matthew 6:1.
At Chatham Church, we believe in heeding Jesus' call to serve others.
We want to meet the physical as well as the spiritual needs of our community. That is why we reserve several Sundays a year where we invite the church family along with service minded individuals and organizations to serve our community.
Church services are cancelled and community service projects fill Sunday morning. There is a project for everyone: young and young at heart, men, women, boys and girls, as well as childcare for the littlest ones.
Our mission as a church is to connect people to God and to each other and to engage our world for good. Please join us as we work to transform our community for good.
Foundational Scriptures for Chatham Serves
For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
Mark 12:29-31 - The Greatest Commandment
One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?”
“The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”
Matthew 6:1 - Humility
“Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them.”
