People in need are able to get assistance with their needs for food, but not for diapers... now they can with Bundles of Hope!  We are looking for donations as well as volunteers.  Drop off diapers at one of two locations at Mountain Chapel UMC - FLC Lobby and upstairs near the Youth Room. Donation also accepted!  For more information on our next bundling/distribution date, or how you can help, please contact


As we begin a new year, do we choose to simply survive or THRIVE in our Christian life?  Come learn the life-changing secrets to having an energizing, ever-increasing relationship with Jesus Christ as we meet in the gym for a five week church-wide Sunday School class led by Pastor Tom Parrish and Rev. Rabbi Eric Walker.  Class begins January 11 and is at 9:30.  Watch the video below and start thinking about the possibility of thriving in 2015!

Weekly Bible Study "Prophecy in the News"


Taught by Reverend Rabbi Eric E. Walker


Mountain Chapel Sanctuary at 7:00 PM


Are we living in the Last Days?  Are the prophecies about Israel being fulfilled? Are the Feasts part of the prophetic timeline?  What in the world is going on?  Each week we will discuss the Headlines and the Biblical importance.  All are welcome!

A Woman's Guide to Reading Through the Bible in a Year


Read and study the Bible with ladies who love the Lord and enjoy discussing their insights into God's word.   We are back in the New Testament ready to study the Acts of the Apostles.  The book of Acts  provides a detailed, orderly, eyewitness account of the birth and growth of the early church and the spread of the gospel immediately after the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Its narrative supplies a bridge connecting the life and ministry of Jesus to the life of the church and the witness of the earliest believers.   Tuesdays at 10:00 am in Room 108.  Nancy Owen, facilitator.  (December 16 is our last meeting of the year - we will resume January 13)

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,
Tom Parrish
