All are invited to meet some of our Muslim neighbors, as they share the tradition of breaking the nightly Ramadan fast with us. On Tuesday, March 12 from 7:30-8:30 pm, join Dr. Ali Vural and others from the Intercultural Association of Michigan. The purpose is to share an interfaith dialogue, learn from each other, and enjoy an excellent meal. We will meet here at Chapel Hill in the Fellowship Hall. Please RSVP to Pastor Jess Davenport.
During this series we will take time to rest in the “empty” chair God provides, inviting us to rest a bit in this season, recalling Jesus being led by the Spirit into and through the wilderness. What could taking time to sit and be still look like for us in this season? Where can we focus on being rather than doing?
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.
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.
At Portage Chapel Hill, we're all about helping folks find a sense of belonging as they are ready, offering lots of opportunities to discover the faith in learning and experience, and offering ways to respond in works of helping others in direct service and advocacy for justice.
