Chapel Hill United Methodist Church was formed July 1, 1975, by the merging of the Evangel Church and the Central United Methodist Church. The first worship service was held here at Chapel Hill on September 9, 1979. We seek to help people connect with God, help people love one another and reach out in mission and ministry.
Chapel Hill is an inclusive congregation. We will see men, women, youth and children participate as ushers, greeters,choir members or liturgists. All persons regardless of age, sex or color are part of the body of Christ.
Our Sunday School is at 9:15 a.m. and then you can stay for our 10:30 service.
Worship begins each Sunday at 10:30 a.m. The worship style is informal including a variety of classical, gospel and contemporary music. A time is set aside each week to share the Good News with the children, followed by Children's Worship for those in pre-school through third grade. Child care is provided in the nursery by caring adults for infants through age 4. Personal sound receivers are available as well as large print hymnals.
Our BOLD contemporary service is on Sunday evenings at 7 pm. Each Sunday is something a little different, so come join us for informal contemporary worship!
We also have open church dinners each Wednesday night at 6 p.m. in Engle Hall.
We receive members by Transfer or by Profession of Faith. Transfer means you are a member of another church and want to place your membership at Chapel Hill. Profession of Faith is for those who have never belonged to a church. Members are asked to be loyal to the church and support its ministries by their prayer, presence, gifts, witness and service.
Our congregation celebrates open communion, which means it is not necessary to belong to this congregation or be baptized in order to receive communion. It essentially means that all are welcome to partake in the grace offered in communion.
Youth groups for elementary age through high school meet each Sunday. Special Bible studies are held periodically. There are choirs for all ages, youth and adult handbell choirs and Adoration, a liturgical dance group.
We invite you to visit us on Sunday mornings!
