Holy Week Special Services and Events

Thursday, April 13 at 6 pm (CDT)
Maundy Thursday Communion Service

Maundy is derived from the Latin word for “command,” and refers to Jesus’ commandment to the disciples to “Love one another as I have loved you.” Maundy Thursday commemorates the Last Supper, which Christians consider the institution of Holy Eucharist, also known as the Lord’s supper or communion.

Christ in the Passover

Jesus’ Last Supper was actually a Jewish Passover.  Igor Barbanel of Jews for Jesus will re-create the traditional Passover service and explain how it foreshadowed Jesus’ death and resurrection in a presentation called “Christ in the Passover” at Chapel Hill United Methodist Church on Friday, April 14th at 6:00 pm.

Igor Barbanel will set a table with items traditionally used at the Passover meal and detail their spiritual significance.  He will also explain the connection between the events of the first Passover in Egypt and the redemption that Jesus accomplished, as well as the deep bond between the ancient Passover feast and the Christian communion celebration today.

Jews for Jesus has presented “Christ in the Passover” at over 38,000 churches.  It has been enthusiastically received by Christians who appreciate learning more about the Jewish backgrounds of their faith.  Moishe Rosen, who founded Jews for Jesus in 1973, has also co-written the book, Christ in the Passover, with his wife, Ceil.  This seminal work includes a look at Passover in ancient times and how it is practiced today.  It will be available after the presentation.  Also available will be a DVD of the Christ in the Passover presentation with David Brickner, the executive director of Jews for Jesus, officiating.

Brickner, a fifth-generation Jewish believer in Jesus, succeeded Rosen as Executive Director in 1996.  Brickner has kept Jews for Jesus on the cutting edge as the ministry has expanded and established branches in eleven countries, including the United States, Brazil, Israel, Russia, France and South Africa.  “We exist to make the Messiahship of Jesus an unavoidable issue to our Jewish people worldwide,” Brickner states.  “There are still a few that haven’t heard of us!”

Igor Barbanel will be happy to answer questions after the presentation.  Call (423)949-4847 or visit http://www.chapelhill-umc.com for more information.  There is no admission charge.

Servant of the Month – April 2017

Servant of the Month heading

For the month of April, we want to recognize Pam Ryle as our Servant of the Month.  Pam serves our church in many ways.  She sings in our choir, and has served on several committees since becoming a member of Chapel Hill.  She is a member of the Basement Bunch Sunday school class where she serves as a teacher along with several others.  She also, at Christmas, bears a close resemblance to Mrs. Santa Claus who always visits us the night of our children’s program.  Pam your church family wants to say thank you for all you do by making you our Servant of the Month.

‘Well done, good and faithful servant!  You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things.  Come and share your master’s happiness!’                                                                       Matthew 25:23
