Welcome to Country Chapel. We have a place saved for you! If you don’t know much about us, we are a church that believes that the Holy Bible is 100% truth. We are a praying church that believes in God’s power and love.
This being said, our church will be changing. We will no longer be Country Chapel United Methodist Church. We agree with the values of the Holy Bible. The United Methodist Church is straying from values we believe in, and we will not be staying affiliated with the values they currently represent. Country Chapel United Methodist Church is in the process of disaffiliation and will be becoming Country Chapel Church. We will be an independent church with a new vision separate from the UMC. We will have a new freedom that we are excited to have you join us in. Any questions on this matter can be directed to Jana Bishop at email@example.com.
Monday, June 12th begins our Annual Revival! Monday through Friday, food will be served at 5:30pm EST. Service to start Monday through Friday at 6:30pm EST. It is our desire to fit into God’s plan that will lead us to revival.

We are also looking for help in our children’s classes and the nursery. Please sign up! Experience not required, but please bring a smile! Check in our office with Amanda for approval.

The Lord watches over you—the Lord is your shade at your right hand.
Retired teacher Debbie Stephens Browder is on a mission to convince as many people as possible to plant trees. The reason? Heat. Extreme heat in the United States is the number one weather-related cause of death. In response, she says, “I’m starting with trees.” The canopy of heat protection that trees provide is one significant way to protect communities. “It’s life or death. It’s not just about beautifying the community.”
The fact that shade isn’t just refreshing but potentially lifesaving would have been well known to the psalmist who wrote Psalm 121; in the Middle East, the risk of sunstroke is constant. This reality adds depth to the psalm’s vivid description of God as our surest place of safety, the One in whose care “the sun will not harm [us] by day, nor the moon by night” (v. 6).
This verse can’t mean that believers in Jesus are somehow immune to pain or loss in this life (or that heat isn’t dangerous!). After all, Christ tells us, “In this world you will have trouble” (John 16:33). But this metaphor of God as our shade does vividly reassure us that, whatever comes our way, our lives are held in His watchful care (Psalm 121:7–8). There we can find rest through trusting Him, knowing that nothing can separate us from His love (John 10:28; Romans 8:39).
