Our door is narrow enough to

keep out hate and prejudice, 

but wide enough

to welcome all in God's love.

Our Weekly/Monthly Schedule at a Glance:

     Sunday ~ 


             9:15 am         Gathering in Grace   If you would like a quiet place for prayer and reflection, you are welcome to enjoy the Chapel.  Invite a prayer partner to join you, write a note, or prepare for worship. A prayer card you have written to be shared in our worship together can be given to an usher, a deacon, or pastor.  Our Choir shares the gift of music beginning their rehearsal at 9:30 am.  You are very welcome to join us! We usually sing through the hymns before working on the anthem for the day.  It is a wonderful way to prepare for worship.  Or, you may wish to gather to visit with members and friends in the Narthex and greet folks as they arrive!

A Brief History of Our Congregation-Colonial Heights began as a merger

between  three United Presbyterian congregations. Holt Chinese, First United Presbyterian (itself a merger of 1st, 3rd & the Italian United), and Mizpah Presbyterian Churches shared a new venture in1961 with the chartering of CHPC, and in 1962 the building at SE Stephens & 28th was built.  We treasure the heritage of these predecessor congregations who cherished fine music, offered a welcome to all people, earnestly supported mission, and nurtured children.  Connected to, and appreciative of, our past---we are a church of the present seeking God's leading here and now.  The last Sunday of each month we host a welcome lunch for all visitors and share a tour of the building along with a more extensive history of the church and its mission and ministry today.  Please join us any time!
