“When it Rains it Pours”


Capital Improvement Campaign to raise $145,000 to repair church roof, repair and update the parsonage, and add awnings over sanctuary door entrances.  You will be surprised by the two minute video below when you see just how bad the damage to the roof actually is.


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 at 9:30 for a five week church-wide Sunday School class led by Pastor Tom Parrish and Rev. Rabbi Eric Walker.  If you missed the first two classes, you can watch them below and start thinking about the possibility of thriving in 2015!  (The video from the first class on Jan. 11 is shot from an odd angle because The Fireside Room was so crowded with close to 200 people!  We have now moved the class to the Gym.)  


The Daniel Plan

Small Group Study Begins Jan. 11 at 5:00 PM

This six-session video-based, small group study from Rick Warren, Dr. Daniel Amen, and Dr. Mark Hyman is centered on five essentials that will launch your journey to health:  faith, food, fitness, focus and friends. 


The Daniel Plan small group study teaches simple ways to incorporate healthy choices into your daily lifestyle.  This study guide includes biblical inspiration from Pastor Rick, instruction from our doctors and wellness experts, practical food and fitness tips, and much more. 


Facilitators:  Becky Umphrey and Andrea von Herrmann - meets in The Parlor.



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 in Fellowship Hall. Donation also accepted!  For more information on our next bundling/distribution date, or how you can help, please contact

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.   Currently we are in the Book of Joshua. God promised to give Abraham and his descendants the land of Canaan, and under Joshua, God fulfilled His promise.  This act completed the mission of redemption that God started with Moses in bringing Israel out of Egypt. Group meets Tuesdays at 10:00 am in Room 108 - everyone is welcome!  Nancy Owen, facilitator.

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
