Dear Friends,


I wanted to take a moment to address the recent news regarding churches seeking to disaffiliate from the United Methodist Church over disagreements on same-sex marriage and LGBTQ clergy. While we understand and respect the decisions of our fellow churches, we want to make it clear that Colonial Hills United Methodist will not be considering leaving the denomination.


At Colonial Hills, we believe in welcoming all people with God’s love. We strive to focus on the teachings of Christ Jesus and grow in grace, walking in the way that leads to life. We are proud to be a “lighthouse congregation” for those who wish to stay within the United Methodist Church, providing a safe and supportive space for those looking for a church home.


We understand that this may be a difficult time for some, as there is much uncertainty and change happening within our denomination. But we want to reassure you that here at Colonial Hills UMC, we are committed to remaining firmly United Methodist. We will continue to stay in touch with our conference and district, and we will work to access any new resources that may be available to support those who wish to remain a part of the UMC.


If you are searching for a vibrant community of faith for all ages, we invite you to come and visit us at Colonial Hills United Methodist Church. We welcome you with open arms and look forward to sharing God’s love with you.


In Christ,

Pastor Dan Harrington
