2003 to Present

"Take Heed to the ministry which you have received from the Lord"
Colossians 4:17

Chat & Chew was formed in 2003 as a way of saying "Thank you" to the senior ladies of the church who have given in countless ways to the life of First United Methodist Church. 

Times have changed and we now serve not only our members but also ladies of other churches in our community.  This ministry is now truly a ministry that reaches outside our walls.

We serve approximately 35 ladies a lovely lunch in a "party atmosphere" on the first Monday of each month. September, we serve on the second Monday in observance of Labor Day.  We do not serve during the summer months.

Valet service is available.

In recent months, younger ladies in our church have joined our cooking staff and we are so grateful.  Our doors are open to the senior ladies and you are welcome.  Our room capacity is five tables with seven ladies to each table.

This is truly a "God Given " ministry with not a negative element. We are supported by the First United Methodist Church in every way.

To God be the glory.

Chat and Chew Memories


May 7, 2018 Chat and Chew attendees learned the history of Chat and Chew as presented by Ginger Boon. Ginger stated that Chat and Chew got its beginnings back in 2003 with four women pouring their hearts into the monthly event. Those four women are: Iris Ball, Sue Neuhoff, Jo Ann Cody, and Ginger Boon. They were later joined and assisted by Leola Barton, Nita Bozek, Ronda Becker, Barbara Montgomery, Qilan Bryan, Peggy Collins, Carolyn Sanders, and Jana Chancellor.


(L to R) Iris Ball, Leola Barton, Ginger Boon, Sue Neuhoff, and Jo Ann Cody.


Early pictures of Chat and Chew include so many of those who have passed on; these are sweet memories of a number of wonder ladies.





Wonder how many of the ladies who are no longer with we can find in these pictures! I see and recognize: Eleanor Brewster, Ann Keever, Dorothy Sjoberg, Maggie Thomas, Maureen Overall, Faustine Skrivanek, Elizabeth Massengill, Anita Carter, Alice Danielson, Jeanette Houdek, Mary McLelland, Marie Munn, Dorothy Evans, Pauline Boon, and Betty Ludwig. Let us know if you recognize any others!!!


Newest members of the Chat and Chew Team who give of themselves to those who have served so many years before are: Carol Anderson, Beverly Jinks, Donna Montgomery, Alison Beckham, and Dee Keever.

A couple of members who have been giving of themselves and honoring others with their talents and care since the beginning of Chat and Chew are Joan Hodge and Ina Dubberly.
