Why PCHUM?

Something inside brought you to this ‘click’.  Maybe you have no connection to any faith at all and are trying to figure out what all the buzz is about.  Maybe you have had really crummy experiences in the faith and are looking for what might be out there that does not require you to “check your mind at the door.”  Maybe you have heard some idle rumor about that brown brick church with the awesome stained glass windows at Oakland and Romence.   Whatever…I am glad you made the ‘click’.  This little section of our website tells you some of the basics of this community of faith.

Recently a member of staff here at PCHUM (Portage Chapel Hill United Methodist) described us as “classically progressive”.  I like that.  We carry the 2000 year-old history of Christianity and the 216 year-old history of Methodism into a culture that is changing so fast we are all seeking some grounding, while knowing that life is different…very different.  We are classical in that we hold the tradition with honor without being tied to it in such a way that it cannot evolve.  And we are progressive in that we work hard to keep the simple message of Jesus relevant to the wild diversity of folks in our time.  Classically progressive…

Every church says it is “friendly”.  And we try.  More than that, though, we have forged a congregation with the questions and concerns of folks new in the faith or needed to be Renewed in the faith in mind.  I hope you come and discover who we are, who Christ is, and who you might become as part of this community.

See you real soon…
