Join us April 7 for our next sermon series: The Tree of Life. Beginning with the "Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil" that God planted in the garden of Eden and ending with the "Tree of Life" highlighted in Revelation, this series will look deeply at the scriptural teachings about our relationship with God's creation. Together we will explore hard questions about God's plan for our planet and listen for God's answers - more profound than anything offered in our secular world. Don't forget to invite a friend!

Musical Mondays Concert Series - Season Opener!
September 26, 2011 at 8 pm
In our continuing effort to present young artists, "Houli" is the latest sensation, and we are delighted to open our third season with his extraordinary talents. On Monday, September 26 at 8:00 pm, hear why The American Organist described Houli as a major talent whose star is destined to brightly shine over the horizon for years to come. Music enthusiasts who attended this summer’s concert at CHUMC for the Organ Historical Society were overheard to say that any performance by Houli was not to be missed.
During concert season 2010-2011, Houli was a featured performer at two regional conventions of the American Guild of Organists. He also made another European tour and inaugurated the newly installed pipe organ at the Sondheim Performing Arts Center in Iowa. He studied with the Grammy Award-winning organist Paul Jacob while doing his graduate degree work at The Juilliard School in New York.
Christopher Houlihan’s performance will be followed by a reception in the parlor where guests can enjoy time with the artist and savory refreshments. Both concert and repast are free, but donations are gratefully received. Pledge cards to support CHUMC’s “Musical Mondays” also are available at each concert and through the church office. Additionally, donations may be made in honor of or in memory of a loved one.
The concert season continues in 2012 with a January 30 performance by the U.S. Army Chorus and a May 7 performance by a master of improvisation, organist Tom Trenney. Trenney’s program will be accompanied by a silent film.
If taking the subway, use either Capitol South or Eastern Market metro stops; if driving, use on-street parking. For more information, contact the church office at 202-546-1000
The “Musical Mondays” concerts have become a favorite community occurrence. At each concert, new friends discover CHUMC, its music, its people and its hospitality.
We are most fortunate to welcome Timothy Olsen to CHUMC on April 17-18. He will provide the accompaniment for Dubois' The Seven Last Words of Christ during the 11:00 a.m. Palm Sunday service on April 17, which will include harp, tympani, the mighty CHUMC Choir and soloists.
The very next night, April 18 at 8:00, Tim will continue our Musical Monday series with a fantastic organ program which will include Carmen!
Winner of the 2002 National Young Artists Competition in Organ Performance, Timothy Olsen received his Master of Music and Doctor of Musical Arts from the Eastman School of Music. He has recorded for NAXOS, appeared on Pipedreams, and performed across the country at such venues as St. Thomas Church in New York.

Comprised of a dozen or more of the finest trombonists in the area, the Washington Trombone Ensemble will be featured along with the organ for a sonic experience not to be missed. Imagine the rich tapestry of sound with regal trombones combined with our magnificent Möller in the divine acoustic of Capitol Hill UMC, playing the music of Strauss, Wagner, Gabrielli, Stephenson, Bach and more!
Tired of the same old Christmas music? Well, Capitol Hill UMC is the place to be on Sunday, December 5th at the 11 AM service. Christmas Symphonies by Daniel Pinkham will be our musical offering this season. Composed for soloists, chorus, organ, harp, and bass, this seven movement work, in English, progresses from Advent through Christmas with harmonically vibrant urgency and triumphant resolution that sheds new light on the age-old story.
