About Us

You Belong at Portage Chapel Hill

Welcome to Portage Chapel Hill, a church where all are welcome. We recognize Christ in everyone and embrace our differences as gifts from a creative God. We challenge ourselves to reflect God’s unconditional and forgiving love.

About Us

At Portage Chapel Hill we:


Worship is the heartbeat of what we do. We meet weekly to worship together, and understand that the foundation of our lives, the other 167 hours of the week, to be ways to worship our Creator.


Prayer as conversation and connection to God is both personal and communal. We seek to bolster our prayer life in both. 


Our faith is a lifelong journey. We are called to grow together in love, justice, mercy and compassion and we do this in Worship, Bible Study, service projects, and through relationships.


We serve as a response to God’s generosity and grace in our faith-filled lives. We are called to serve with our spiritual gifts, talents, and resources, within and outside the church walls.


We are called to give of ourselves and what has been given of us. While that includes our finances, it’s a much broader understanding of what it means to give yourself in relationship to God and community.
