Portage Chapel Hill United Methodist
“A Place at the Table” - 8:00am: our most contemplative worship experience, with the gift of communion an integral part of the service. This community setting for worship begins in the Lobby area as folks gather gently, greet each other, get coffee or whatever is needed, and the worship begins in that informal space. Music will then take us from that setting into the chapel together.
“The Gathering” - 9:00am: creatively blends organ, choir, bells, instrumental and vocal forms into an hour of worship that ties the old and the new into a service with an integrated message from the pastor forming the theme.
“New Life” - 11:30am: provides a framework for worship that emerges from the life of the worshippers, with the New Life Band offering the bulk of the musical setting each week. The timing of the service will provide opportunities for mission and service connecting worship with radical discipleship.
Welcome to Portage Chapel Hill United Methodist Church, a church in the services of Christ, where all peoples are welcome and invited to grow in Christian discipleship by discovering, through Christ, meaning and purpose in their daily living, working and loving by:
• discerning their own unique gifts, talents and strengths
• cultivating these gifts and preparing to accept new ministries
• deploying their gifts as ambassadors for Christ in the ministry of reconciliation in their home, school, community and workplace.
We are called to recognize Christ in everyone, inclusive of, but not limited to those of differing socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, race, age, ethnic background, creed, gender, disabilities or abilities and family make up. We understand diversity to be a gift from a creative God. We discern that God is challenging the Christian community to lead by example and to strive to reflect God's unconditional and forgiving love, and to be a life-giving church community that reaches out to all.
