Worship

Join other UNC Students for a service of Christian worship at 7PM in the University UMC chapel. The service features contemporary worship music mixed in with some classic hymns, a message that relates to your life as a college student, and Communion.

We also host thematic monthly worship series, like Campfire Stories!

Come as you are, whether that be in heels or in cargo shorts, pajamas or Nikes--everyone is welcome!

The chapel is on the ground floor of University UMC (150 E. Franklin Street).
