New Apologetics Study


May 4, 11, 18, & 25 from 6:00-7:30 PM


Meets in “The Parlor”


Johnny Gray, facilitator



The moral argument for the existence of God begins with the fact that all people recognize some moral code (that some things are right, and some things are wrong).  We will study how right and wrong require a God to exist, and why a Judeo-Christian God is the best explanation for an objective human moral code.


Farmer's Market at Vestavia Hills UMC


As part of their ongoing effort to reach out to the community, VHUMC is sponsoring a Farmer’s Market in their parking lot on Wednesday mornings, from 7:00-11:00 am, from May 11 through September 14.  The farmers will be local, and will offer seasonal vegetables and fruits, baked goods, cheese and meats, as well as other items.

What Love Is, a 7 session study of 1, 2, & 3 John, encourages you to remain faithful to the truth. You will be challenged to look at contrasting themes such as walking in the light instead of darkness, truth versus lies and deception, loving God more than loving the world, and the meaning of true fellowship and community rather than shallowness.  Will meet through June 9, and then be on a break for summer until September 15.

Welcome to Mountain Chapel!


Relationships matter to God. The people at Mountain Chapel take this truth very seriously. Whether it’s in worship services, Bible studies or softball games, nothing is more important than growing relationships with God and with others. Relaxed, comfortable, open, loving…words that often describe the best of relationships, are words that are often used to describe life at Mountain Chapel.


I hope you will enjoy looking at the Mountain Chapel site. If you have any questions or cannot find what you need, please feel free to contact the church. If you have a need for prayer, we would love to pray for you and with you. Call the church office and ask for me or one of the other staff members, and we will pray for you immediately.


May God bless you and be real to you in the days ahead.


In Christ,
David Carboni
