As God's people, we gather to remind ourselves of who God is, who we are, and to listen together to what He is saying to our community. The expression of those gatherings has looked very different throughout history, but the same purpose has always remained. For that reason, Chapel Hill has three weekly worship services: to encounter God’s presence as a community.
Saturday Night Worship: 6:30 pm in Memorial Chapel
The vision of the Saturday night worship service is that we want to hear God speak and respond to Him. The smaller space of the chapel provides an intimate feeling. There is always an opportunity to pray with someone. The message is the same as Sunday mornings. K-5th grade students participate in most of the service and have their own lesson and activity during the message. Nursery and preschool care are also available.
Sunday Morning Worship: 9:00 am in the Sanctuary
This service is traditional yet blended. A variety of ensembles (choir, orchestra, hand bells, praise bands) lead hymns and spiritual songs. Except for Family Worship Month in August when children remain throughout the entire service, K-5th grade students have their own separate worship service, lesson, and activities that begin in the Memorial Chapel. Nursery and preschool care are also available.
Sunday Morning Worship: 10:45 am in the Sanctuary
This service is modern and more relaxed. A praise band leads the music. As in other services, the message is identical. Except for Family Worship Month in August when children remain throughout the entire service, K-5th grade students join parents at the beginning of the service and then depart for their own separate program. Nursery and preschool care are also available.
