About us

Who We Are

At the United Methodist Church of Chagrin Falls we are family of faith, living in hope, and serving in love. We are a place to make friends, learn about and praise God, and engage in unique and transformative ministries with and for our community. 

The four walls of our building are located at 20 S. Franklin St right in the heart of the beautiful village of Chagrin Falls, but the church, our people, are located in our community. We shop local, we greet you with a smile in the grocery store, we cheer on our beloved school teams and we pray for you as we walk together in our groups. We follow the teachings of the one that came in love, for love. So we are here to love Chagrin Falls and all those that call it home. We've been doing that for nearly 200 years and will continue to do so for the next 200 years. 

Every Sunday we gather to praise God. Some of us have been coming here as long as they can remember and some of us are still new to this Christian thing. The thing we all have in common? We all walked through that door for the first time once. We invite all to this church, and all means all. We celebrate the diversity of God's creation. So come with your questions, curiosities, hopes, and expectations. We promise to make you feel right at home.

History

Chagrin Falls UMC seeks to be a family of faith, living in hope, serving in love. We accomplish this by proudly living into our Methodist roots of “practical divinity” by putting our faith and love into action. We are a church with a historically strong music program, a beloved youth program, and close connection with our community and one another. So come as you are, all of you, and know that you have a place among us.
