Mark Toone, our senior pastor, announced on Sunday, October 29, 2023, that he plans to retire after decades of faithful service at Chapel Hill Church. His final Sunday in the pulpit will be August 25, 2024, and his last day as Senior Pastor is August 31, 2024. We are grateful for Pastor Mark’s leadership and ministry and in the coming months we will have opportunities to celebrate and thank Mark and Cyndi for all they mean to us.
