Conference Advent Worship Service 



"The Church in the heart of the community with the community in its heart"

Thy Kingdom Come

Jesus came to reintroduce the kingdom reality of all of God's sons and daughters. God, whose Holy Spirit resides in us, wants to move through us. Our challenge is to allow God to use us. 

Have you ever wondered why we don't see signs and wonders today? Do you think that those manifestations of God ended when the disciples died? 

God is still moving. Below is a video teaching by Rick Renner which highlights the experiences of Martin Luther and John Wesley. Their ministries were filled with signs and wonders. What God did then, God is doing now. God desires to do it through you and me. 

Pastor Lillian

We Will Worship Virtually

Giving Thanks to God

Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands. Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

— Psalm 100

Neighbor Helping Neighbor

Stairlift Mobile Chair (Stairlifting Chair) Purchased for a Cheverly Neighbor

Thank you to the many people who contributed to this cause. A neighbor's husband lives on a steep hill with numerous steps from the house to the sidewalk. In order to help him and his wife navigate the steps, to get to numerous medical appointments, the Cheverly UMC family collected funds for this chair. The chair will actually walk up and down the stairs. It was delivered on September 12, 2020. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! 


"The Church in the Heart

of the Community with the Community in Its Heart"


Neighbors Helping Neighbors


On Saturday, Novemer 21, 2020, the church parking lot was filled with activity as the Boy Scouts, Cheverly Emergency Response Team, Vice Mayor Kayce Muneyah, Town Administrator Dylan Galloway and Cheverly UMC gave out food to neighbors. Cheverly United Methodist gave out 12 turkeys, sandwiches, apples and sweet potatoes to neighbors. Thanks to Benny's Produce, Ann Barsi, The Gardenhours and Sheila Miller for their efforts in this ministry outreach. 

In the morning, the Boy Scouts picked up groceries donated by neighbors. They sorted and bagged the food for distribution in the afternoon. Over 45 families were served through this food give away. 

Never doubt what your giving makes possible. We are so blessed to have a parking lot and church building out of which we can do ministry.
