Worship at United Church of Chapel Hill
Summer Worship (9:30am)
Coffee Hour (10:30am)
La Mesa (11:00am)
La Mesa is an bilingual worship service enhancing the diversity, spirituality and faith of people in a radically welcoming and inclusive space where the table of the Lord becomes the sacred meeting space.
Child care for infants through kindergarteners is provided in the lower level nursery and playground area during both worship services and the church school hour.
We offer healing prayer by laying on hands at every service of communion. Worshipers are invited to ask for prayer for themselves or for someone they know.
We believe that the Lord’s Table is truly God’s Table . . . Christ is the host. The Table of the Lord is open to all who wish to eat at the table with Christ and in fellowship with others. We come forward, pulling a piece of bread from the loaf and dipping the bread into the cup (intinction). If you are not able to come forward for communion, please raise your hand and communion will be brought to you.
Baptism is the symbolic entry into the Church of Jesus Christ. It is a personal and community celebration and thus typically performed in the context of a worship service. While our primary tradition is infant baptism, we know there are families whose tradition is waiting for individuals to make that decision themselves. Thus, we offer adolescents a confirmation/discipleship class — to confirm those who were previously baptized and to prepare those for baptism who now wish to become disciples of Christ. We also offer adult believer baptism.
