Welcome to Capitol Hill United Methodist or CHUMC as we call it. We are so glad you stopped by our website and hope you will drop by on Sunday, come to share or serve one of our daily meals, or call me for a cup of joe, as I would love to get to know you.
CHUMC is a different sort of place. We are black and white, housed and unhoused (homeless), gay and straight, red and blue (which isn’t usual on the Capitol Hill), and the list goes on. In fact, we believe deeply that we do not have to think alike in order to love alike, so we come to learn about God from one another. In a world that is deeply divided, we seek to tear down barriers that separate us from Christ and from each other, and we seek to do so without judgment and with joy!
Traditional in worship but unorthodox in all sorts of other ways, we are more concerned about creating space for you to encounter God than enforcing a specific creed. Join us in learning about God’s love in worship and small group studies, and encounter God’s love as we sit together at community meals and serve one another. Let us grow in God’s love as together we enjoy the day to day and struggle with the difficulties in our lives and world.
So please browse this site and send me any thoughts and questions or introduce yourself to me. It is my prayer that the Spirit leads you wherever you need to be. I must admit, though, I’d be overjoyed if God guides you here.
