Love Chapel Hill

Our Name is Our Mission: To Love Chapel Hill with the Heart of Jesus. This kind of love is the great reversal, turning the whole story on its head. It is a protest against the way things are and a vision of how they could be. It has the courage to cross every line drawn by hate and climb every wall built by fear.

Join us in Mission

Love is more than our name. It is our mission, the very essence of who we are and everything we do. For we love because He loved first. We ask you join us in mission to Love Chapel Hill with the Heart of Jesus. Embrace the rejected, the outsider, and the forgotten to know they are loved.

Love Is Our Mission

One of our Marks as a church is a Reckless Love that the Gospel is a love that gives itself away. It is our mission, the very essence of who we are and everything we do. Our Love Mission Team was formed to ensure our mission to Love those in need is a part of our rhythm of partnering in our community to serve those on the outskirts and love them as Jesus calls us to do. We will have monthly opportunities for you to participate in Loving Chapel Hill with the Heart of Jesus.

Love Mission for Ukraine

We continue to pray for peace in Ukraine, for the defense of the oppressed, and that war may cease. As homes, families, and cities are being separated and destroyed by the advance of Russia's aggression, there are now over 1 million refugees fleeing Ukraine for safety. We've been praying also for ways to express the heart of Jesus to those impacted by war and learned quickly this week of a small ministry on the ground, making a big impact by receiving refugee families in Moldova and getting them safely to Romania. New Hope Eurasia normally does work throughout the region, serving orphans and people living in poverty, loving them with the heart of Jesus. 

We invite you to financially support their work by giving to them directly or give to LCH (put "Ukraine" in the comments), and we will do one larger gift all together from our Church family. Whether $10 or $500, your gift will enable the ongoing work they are doing for those directly impacted by this war. Learn more about their work.
