The Chapel Experiences: Our worship in both its diversity and its unity is an encounter with the living God through the risen Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit. The Traditional Experience at Southern Hills is rooted in the teachings of Scripture that give our worship a basic pattern that has proved itself over the centuries. This pattern goes back to worship as Jesus and his earliest disciples knew it – services in the synagogue and Jewish family worship around the meal table. It has been fleshed out by the experience and traditions of Christian congregations for two thousand years. The Chapel Experiences at Southern Hills follow the time honored liturgical tradition of the Ancient Church, handed down and adapted from our Anglican forbears.

  • The 8:15 Chapel Experience: This Experience follows the Basic Pattern for Sunday Worship in the United Methodist Book of Worship. It is very liturgical with all four scripture readings commonly associated with liturgical worship and uses very little technology. The hymns are traditional, accompanied by an organ and a piano. In this Experience, the pastors will most frequently wear vestments (think: robes).
  • The 10:45 Chapel Experience: This Experience is a more casual service, held in the Chapel each Sunday morning. While this experience still contains some traditional United Methodist liturgy, we blend old and new songs, prayers are extemporaneous, and the teaching time includes a full sermon. In this Experience, the pastors will most frequently dress more casually.
