A Place for Real Connections

Upper Room Houston (UR) exists to connect the disconnected among us to other people, and the unconditional love of God. These REAL connections are the “life-blood” of a diverse Christian community that values Relationships, Empathy, Action, and Love.

Gather to Connect, 
Scatter to Change the World

Our ultimate goal is for Upper Room members to cultivate a REAL Life of purpose and joy through their connections to Jesus Christ and each other. As one of the worship communities of Chapelwood UMC, The Upper Room “gathers” weekly to connect with extended family, celebrate our risen savior, and hear inspiring teaching about how God would have us live.  The Upper Room then “scatters” each week to become a vibrant and growing network of social, learning, justice, and service-oriented groups we call “Bands” that provide another connection space for our people to make a significant impact on the world.

The Upper Room is:

  1.  A Relational Community - Worshipping, growing, learning, in diverse community - “doing life together”
  2.  A Sharing Community - Missional, selflessly serving, generous with our time, talent, and treasure
  3.  A Storytelling Community - Enthusiastic, proactive, and viral about telling stories of transformation in every way possible
