Pastor’s Message: September 28, 2020

In yesterday’s sermon, Adam spoke of how the Israelites complained against Moses because they had nothing to drink. Modern English translations typically translate the Hebrew verb here as “murmuring.” The Hebrew here would be better translated to indicate the Israelites were enraged. Their situation was viewed as no small inconvenience. The Israelites rage was expressed...

Pastor’s Message: September 21st, 2020

Merciful. Gracious. Slow to anger. Abounding in ad keeping steadfast love. Faithful. Forgiving. These are the attributes of God mentioned in Exodus 34:6-7, which we discussed in Sunday’s sermon. We face trying days in 2020. The doubts may arise. Maybe our thoughts have turned inward, focused on ourselves to the neglect of others. Maybe our...

Pastor’s Message: September 14, 2020

This Sunday we begin a five-week journey through the narratives found in Exodus 16 through 33 entitled Communities in Chaos. They tell of the relationship between Yahweh (“I Am”) and a liberated people. The people God liberated were called to trust in God and be distinct from the empires of the world. Yet they found...

Metro District In-Person Worship Update

Brothers and sisters in Christ, With a new school year underway and football leagues at (almost) every level making plans to begin a fall season, many of us are wondering if now is the time to resume in-person worship services or other kinds of ministry gatherings in our Metro District churches. I have continued to...

Pastor’s Message: August 24th, 2020

Yesterday in worship we discussed Romans 12:1-8 and how laying down our ego is the first part of being a disciple and having our minds and lives transformed by God’s grace, akin to a caterpillar becoming a butterfly. As Paul exhorted the people in the Roman church to lay down their egos, he stripped the...

Pastor’s Message: August 10, 2020

Well, CHUMC Family, we continue to worship online and hope you are finding our online worship helpful during this time, even though it is not the same as in-person worship. In recent weeks, you may have noticed we are back to providing announcement slides for worship. With this in mind, you may have something coming...

During Lent, our Thursday night bible study group and the Class Menagerie began a study of The Walk by Adam Hamilton. Some have been able to finish the study via Zoom video conferencing. Our children have begun studying the material this summer and the youth will follow soon. The book itself is a great review of the...

Pastor’s Message: July 13th, 2020

In our current sermon series on Paul’s epistle to the Romans, we have mentioned mutuality a few times. The life of mutuality contrasts with the life of exploitation as exhibited in the life of the mind that is set on the flesh. This is the life of self-pleasing. It is the empire mindset.  In a...

EPHESIANS 3:18

I wish above all things that you may know how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ for you.
