Everybody In Sunday Recap
On Sunday, June 16, our anchor congregation, Christ United Methodist in Chapel Hill, featured The Local Church at all three morning worship services. Because The Local Church is a new campus (or expression) of Christ UMC, it is a right and good thing to take time every so often to offer updates on where we’ve been, where we are, and where we’re headed. After all, along with the Office of New Faith Communities for the North Carolina Conference of The United Methodist Church, Christ UMC is one of the key supporters of this movement. In other words, The Local Church wouldn’t be a thing without Christ UMC’s generous support, forward thinking, and God-sized vision!
So on Sunday (which also happened to be Trinity Sunday), we had the joy of worshipping together as one church family! Alli Burks led worship at the 8:30 worship service and offered special music at the 9:45 and 11 services, we celebrated the baptism of Elias Iglesia, and Pastor Ben (Lead Pastor of Christ UMC) and Pastor Brent shared about how the connection between Christ UMC and The Local Church connects with what we know to be true when we think about God as Trinity — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We’ve included the audio of the Sunday sermon below if you’d like to hear the conversation between Pastors Ben and Brent and learn more about the connection between The Local Church and Christ UMC.
