Worship At Chapel Hill Christian Church
A visitor at Chapel Hill Christian Church remarked after worship, “this was more fun than church ought to be”. We work to make worship a relaxed experience.
We wait while people hurry in from the parking lot.
Folks sit with a cup of very good coffee.
You can sometimes hear the children from the other room.
Folks perfect their tambourine technique.
During the summer, Rebecca gives a prize to anyone who can connect her sermon title with the scripture before the sermon begins.
Music is a mixture of traditional hymns, folk songs, kid friendly music and gospel music.
After worship, folks gather to chat and enjoy more coffee, food, and fellowship.
Our members and friends participate in our worship service. A member presides at the communion table and offers a communion meditation. Another person hosts the table and helps distribute communion. We also have a reader each week. Everyone is invited to participate - no one needs to be asked to be a part of our worship. At the same time, we recognize that some people are more reserved and want to take a back seat.
Our communion table is open to everyone! We invite everyone to join us around the table to celebrate the fact that we are the loved children of God.
Our children participate in the majority of the worship service. Each week we have a children's message. During the message our children spend time with Greg Watrous or sometimes Silva Stumpf.
After worship, folks gather to chat and enjoy food and fellowship. We are a casual gang.
Special Worship Services
At Chapel Hill Christian Church, we have a number of special worship services throughout the year.
During Advent, we celebrate with an Instant Christmas Pageant. Everyone participates in a fun-filled service that tells the story of the birth of Jesus.
On Christmas Eve we come together in the afternoon for a Moravian Love Feast and communion.
During the Advent Season, we have daily devotions delivered by email. Rev. Casey Sigmon is our author
Ash Wednesday begins our Lenten Season. On the Sunday before Lent begins, we retire the Alleluia banner and folks make alms boxes. On Good Friday, we worship with the solemn service.
On Easter morning we celebrate new life with the return of the Alleluia banner. We also bring our Alms boxes and pour huge amounts of change upon the altar.
Pentecost is the birthday of the Church, and at Chapel Hill Christian Church it is a real celebration. Each year it is a different and festive experience.
In late summer, we celebrate the kid-friendly service, The Blessing of the Backpacks. We bless the backpacks of kids returning to school as well as the computers, lunch boxes, PDA's and other tools of our adults. We collect school supplies for children at Project HomeStart.
In October, we celebrate World Communion Sunday, as we join with our brothers and sisters in Christ and gather round the Table of the Lord.
All Saints Sunday provides an opportunity for all of us to ask the blessings of God on the Saints of our lives.
