Essentials of Methodism 

Wednesday Night Bible Study

"The Friends of Jesus" Small Group

5:00 PM, Meets in "The Study"

Becky Umphrey, facilitator



In our everyday lives, friends are the people whom we spend the most time with, go through struggles with at times, and who know us best. Each of Jesus’ friends—Peter, John, Matthew, Judas, Mary Magdalene, and Lazarus—traveled with Jesus and were part of His daily ministry, and each has a compelling story to tell. There were some who would question or doubt Him…and one would even betray Him.  Kingsbury brings these fascinating personalities to life in ways that will not only help bring you closer to the truths found in Scripture, but also to Christ.

Financial Peace University,

Small Group (by Dave Ramsey)

Runs for 9 weeks

5:00-6:30 PM, Meeting Room 108



Financial Peace University is designed to teach you and your family how to get out of debt, stay out of debt and build wealth. This nine week class will include watching a weekly DVD and participating in discussions about how you can change your whole attitude about money!  The $99 cost of the class will pay for itself by simply applying Dave's time tested techniques.  Steve Umphrey, facilitator.




"A Time of Grace" is offered every third Sunday immediately following the 10:30 worship service in the Chapel.  A time to pray… have someone pray with you… celebrate communion.  A time to quietly and worshipfully experience God's Holy presence.

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
