Thoughts from pastor Christian
 

God’s Blessings to you and thank you for stopping by!

Chestnut Hill Church United Church of Christ is an historic congregation with roots traced all the way back to the early 1700’s. Our current building was constructed over 130 years ago and we are still standing strong on top of this windy little hill of ours. We are a loving, kind, compassionate, and faithful community, always looking for folks to join us on this journey of faith.

It is an awesome privilege and honor to be a part of such a loving group of faithful Christians. We have made some exciting changes to our little church and are venturing into new territory, looking forward to reaching out to our community in new and exciting ways.

As a pastor, I always watch in wonder as folks become more closely connected with God and one another through prayer, study, and most importantly, through fellowship with others. Our family, and we are very much a family, has shown me what it means to care for one another through prayer. No one is excluded and we welcome all to join us for fellowship each week.

As we move into the future together, I am reminded that Jesus taught us to open to the new as well as the traditional. We are a traditional kind of people in that we live richly into our heritage as a German Reformed congregation but we also have opened our hearts to the still speaking God of today in finding new and exciting ways to engage and be a part of one another’s lives. We have embraced technology in our sanctuary and have begun streaming parts of our worship through our private Facebook group page. If you are on Facebook and would like to check out our group pages, please see the Facebook link at the bottom of all our pages.

There is so much for us to learn from one another and so much for us to give thanks for, so “This is the day the LORD has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.” (Psalm 118:24 NLT).

Peace and blessings,

Rev. Christian Creyer (Pastor Christian)
