Since our founding in 1844, the United Methodist Church of Chagrin Falls has provided a vibrant Christian experience in the heart of Chagrin Falls. Our present sanctuary was erected in 1885 and allows us to offer a traditional and welcoming worship experience, a caring community to help us all on our faith journey, and a place to enjoy life together as we grow in love for God and one another.

A Request from The Geauga Hunger Task Force

Dear Church Members,
Just as spring prepares for the coming year, the Geauga Hunger Task Force is again preparing for a year of feeding Geauga’s own families. Facing a $39,000 challenge (shortfall) due to loss of funding and increase need, we are approaching the community early in March to ask for your support of the Geauga Hunger Task Force. Since 2007, the Hunger Task Force has seen the number of people right here in Geauga County needing your help more than double. Thanks to your food drives, generous donations, and your support of special events like the Messiah Concert and the CROP Walk, we fed over 3,075 Geauga children last year and approximately 1,400 senior citizens. Please consider a donation to feed Geauga’s families this spring by making a check payable to the Geauga Hunger Task Force. Our address is 209 Center St. # H, Chardon, Ohio 44024. Thank you for considering this special request.
