Pastor’s Message: July 6th, 2020

Hello CHUMC Family, I hope you had a joyous holiday weekend.  If you have been struggling with the technical issues we have had with our worship livestream on YouTube and Facebook, our constant testing and troubling shooting seems to have us close to returning to a quality and consistent livestream. You may have noticed we...

Pastor’s Message: June 15th, 2020

Consider the possibilities of a fully benevolent God revealed in Christ as we discussed in worship this past Sunday. A God who, rather than being so angry that someone had to be punished for sin, but who limited the consequences by enacting that punishment on God’s child, instead sends God’s child to enact obedience, even...

Pastor’s Message: June 1st, 2020

Well, CHUMC family, we continue to worship online through at least the month, and once we open it will be in stages so it may be some time before things return to normal. One other result of our current circumstances has been the inability to have an all-church meeting so I thought I would give...

Pastor’s Message: May 26th, 2020

As businesses start to open and some things are starting to reach a form of new normal, it is natural for a question to arise: when will we be able to gather for in-person worship once again? We know increasing numbers of churches are gathering back together and may wonder when that will include us. ...

Pastor’s Message About the Coming Weeks

Chapel Hill Family, “…a thorn was given me in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to torment me… Three times I appealed to the Lord about this, that it would leave me, but he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness.'” – 2 Corinthians 12:7-9 Paul writes about...

Chapel Hill Family, We entered the second rotation of our Rolling Lenten Fast this week. We continue our daily prescribed fasts which we undertake as we seek to calibrate our focus on and trust in our God of love and grace. As we do so, there is a tiny part of our fast I would...

Pastor’s Message: February 25th, 2020

Chapel Hill Family, A couple of your fellow CHUMC members and I attended the North Texas Conference of the UMC Immigration Summit two weeks ago at Lovers Lane UMC. We enjoyed a wonderful time of worship and reflection on the humanitarian crisis occurring on our border. It has been my intent to travel down to...

Pastor’s Message: February 18th, 2020

By next Wednesday, we enter again into the season of Lent, our 40-day season of discipline and devotion. As United Methodists, we speak often of our disciplines, or means of grace, which we know we can practice as the ordinary means by which we can receive grace in the prevenient, justifying, and sanctifying stages of...

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.
