Join us for Holy Week and Easter services at Chapel Hill
Sacrifice. Love. Death … yet beautiful resurrection, hope, and renewal! This is Holy Week and Easter. At Chapel Hill, we welcome everyone to experience and share the extraordinary grace and love of Jesus Christ. We offer a full schedule of services throughout the week, beginning with Palm Sunday and culminating with Easter. Join us in worship this season. We’d love to welcome you!

A joint service with Dellrose United Methodist Church, hosted at Chapel Hill
The Dellrose Dance Troupe and Choir will appear alongside Chapel Hill’s Celebration Choir and Praise Team. Gifted preacher Rev. Dr. Kevass Harding will offer the sermon as we remember the institution of Holy Communion and Jesus’ command to love each other.
Good Friday Tenebrae Worship
Friday, April 14, 7:00 p.m.
Under the leadership of Dr. Jen Stephenson and the Celebration Choir, the Service of Shadows (Tenebrae) is an experience where Scripture and Song help us experience the Passion of the Christ. The sanctuary gradually darkens as we approach the story of Crucifixion. Historically, this is the only service of worship where Holy Communion is not celebrated.
Sunday, April 16
Services at 8, 9:30 and 11 a.m.
This child-friendly service includes a children’s sermon and brief homily from Senior Pastor Rev. Jeff Gannon on what the Resurrection means for everyday living. Not just a doctrine we believe, the resurrection is a way of life we embrace. The Sacrament of Holy Communion is served and the Celebration Choir will sing Handel’s “Hallelujah Chorus.”
