ATTENTION COLLEGE HILL UMC FAMILY AND FRIENDS

Please read the updated information below. (3-25-2020)


If you have a prayer request, please CLICK HERE and it will be sent to the church.


CHUM Friends,

 

Your staff has been working very hard these past 10 days to pull together online worship and we are so excited that this Sunday, we are ready to go with livestreaming services at 9:00 am and at 10:15 am!  You can watch either service from links on our homepage at http://collegehillumc.org/ The 9:00 am service will be livestreamed directly from our website.  The 10:15 am service will be livestreamed through Facebook Live.  Both services will be recorded and available for future viewing, as well.

 

Based on the 30-day Stay-at-Home order issued by Sedgwick County effective today, March 25, 2020, our building will remain closed at least through April 25 (at which time, we will re-assess).  We will communicate updates to you when we have them.  Our staff continues working from home and only accessing the building for specific essential functions or to get materials needed for work at home.  We are changing many groups, events, and classes to an online format that you can access via links on our website.  We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity for virtual community.

 

If you are willing to help make calls or to help with meeting needs (ie. grocery delivery, prescription pick-up) of our congregation members, please contact Debbie Snell at debbie.snell@collegehillumc.org or 316-683-4643.

 

Through these initial phone calls, our hope is to organize small groups of 10-12 people who will have a leader who will check-in with them weekly.  These groups will look differently, depending on the group.  Some may meet virtually via Zoom video meeting.  In other cases, the leader may simply commit to make phone calls to each person in the group every week.  The group leaders will be in communication with me.  Again, if you are willing to be a group leader, contact the church office number.

 

In addition, it has come to our attention that some of you would like some additional practice and support to get started with Zoom BEFORE our Marriage Equality Listening Session hosted by our CHUM Way Forward Team on Sunday, March 29 at 2:00 pm. 

 

Therefore, we are offering a practice training session on Saturday, March 28 at 10:30 am.  This session will last no more than one hour and will be led by Rev. Kalaba Chali, who is an expert zoom user!  Please consider joining us on Saturday morning so that you can practice getting on the call (either on your computer or by phone) and so that you can learn the basics of being part of a large meeting on zoom.  Additionally, there is a link below that gives you step by step instructions.

Tuesday, March 24, 31 and April 7 2020

Lenten Lectio Divina 12:00 p.m.

During this unique moment in time, are you longing for insights from God? Want to find deeper meaning in scripture? Or simply connect with others? Join us via Zoom as we experience the sacred stories of Lent from a new perspective. Lectio Divina, a method of reading, praying, and meditating on scripture invites us to open our ears and hearts to God’s voice breaking through in the midst of ordinary, and not so ordinary, life. In this small group experience we will reflect on the scripture readings for the following Sunday’s worship services at College Hill United Methodist Church in Wichita KS. All are welcome, regardless of church affiliation. Facilitators: Stacy Feil and Rev. Jill Sander-Chali.

not your ordinary church

It doesn't matter if you are just beginning your walk of faith, someone "checking God out," or someone who has been in church all their life, there is a place for you here at College Hill.


Growing in love we embrace diversity in our congregation and community, and we affirm the diginity and worth of every person created in the image of God. We honor the guiding principal that discrimination is incompatible with God's message of unconditional love.
