Pastor’s Message: Nov. 8, 2021

On Sunday, October 17, we considered what faith and life look like when we recognize that sacrifices of atonement, interpreted in light of Jesus Christ’s sacrifice, were acts done under the paradigm of restitution rather than retribution.

Pastor’s Message: August 23, 2021

CHUMC Family, Having just completed our Bread of Life series from John 6, it is worth taking a moment for us to reflect. At the very center of John 6 is the assertion that when partaking of the Bread Come Down From Heaven, we will never be hungry. Obviously, this is a spiritual reality and...
