Welcome to Camp Hill United Methodist Church (CHUM), where our mission is
to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. We strive
to be rooted in God through faith in Christ as we worship the Lord together
and individually; to relate to other believers for fellowship, accountability, and
spiritual growth through small groups; and to reach out beyond our church
and ourselves to meet the needs of others, inviting them to follow Christ with
us. Whether you are a visitor or a regular attender, we celebrate your presence with us today.

We provide a safe, well-staffed nursery for infants and small children during
worship services and Wednesday night activities.
Our sanctuary is equipped with “t-loop” capabilities for digital hearing aids.

Christian Sympathy
To Charlotte Atkins and Billie
Beauregard. Ken Atkins—
Charlotte’s husband, Billie’s father and a
CHUM member since 2012—died at 90
on January 27th. Service is February 23rd
at Indiantown Gap National Cemetery.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to
their family and friends.
As I write this I am preparing for a weekend away (January 16-18) at my annual
Christian men’s retreat which I helped launch back in 1970. This year is the 45 th year
of this retreat, and a number of men from CHUM are joining me—along with about 35
men altogether—at John and Donna Szwast’s camp named Ingelby. I always look
forward to this weekend. For 45 years I have been joining together on this winter
weekend with Christians friends whom I’ve known since high school. Every year, too,
many new men also join us for this time of Christian growth, fellowship and fun. It’s
always one of the highlights of my year. Over the years the retreat has grown into a
Christian Father and Son Retreat, so my two sons will also be joining me
there. They, too, look forward to “The Retreat” each year, and always make the effort to attend--even when one of them lived outside the US. The other weekend to
which I look forward each year is CHUM’s Men Retreat at Mount Asbury, which is
coming up on March 20-22. This is an excellent time for men to get away together
and be challenged to grow in our walks with Christ. I hope that you’re already making plans to join Pastors Jake, Jack, and me at the CHUM’s Men’s Retreat. Registration information is in your bulletin and you can sign-up out at the Men’s Table in the
Gathering Space. ---Pastor Tom
CHUM’s Weekly Prayer List is on tables at the back of the worship spaces and at
the Welcome Center or go to and follow the Prayer List link.
Is there someone whose face you’ve missed in worship recently? - If so,
please let the church office (737-5631) know. It’s also a good idea for you to reach
out and let them know that you’ve missed them.

Panguma Scholarship Update -The last six months have been devastating for Sierra Leone. Prior to the viral outbreak, the efforts of
many organizations, including the UMC Susquehanna Conference, were
finally beginning to make a difference. Our non-profit partner for
school scholarships, Operation Classroom, had some very difficult decisions to make
regarding the funds we had raised for the current school year. Details for this scenario can be viewed on the church website, using the Team Panguma icon, or by
logging in to . The good news is the
schools are now scheduled to re-open on March 1! The importance of your financial
support of the scholarship program cannot be overstated...thank you! Please join us
as we pray for the people and the crisis situation in Sierra Leone.
