2024 a New Year!  WHAT’S NEW AT RMC?

Last year 2023, was 2+0+2+3.  This equals 7, a challenging energy numerologically.  Last year for RMC was indeed a challenging year, but, we did it!  We were inspired by the Bible verse, Luke 18:1 (Lamsa Translation) “He also spoke to them a parable, that they should pray always and not get weary.”

That means, there isn’t anything we can’t handle or accomplish when we act instead of reacting.  Thank you all for helping overcome all of our challenges.  Thanks to you, the Roanoke Chapel is  still here and looking forward to the ensuing year to help you overcome all of YOUR challenges.

         In 2024 RMC will provide you a very well-deserved boost in your confidence in the coming year by providing services, classes and opportunities for personal spiritual & material growth.  It’s the year for leadership, power, karma and infinity!   After 2023, it’s time for a collective inhale of relief knowing it’s a New Year, and a NEW YOU!  Time to enhance YOUR manifesting skills.

Roanoke Chapel is open to all who are seeking.  RMC is a not-for-profit 501 c (3) religious organization.  Donations are tax-deductible and may be made for general purposes or to support a specific program or service. Effective Sunday, April 14, RMC will be meeting on You Tube. 

Spirit Blessings Always,

Recently we have been  asked that the following be published as UMC’s DNA!  We are a part of the United Metaphysical Churches and I wanted to share this with our individual congregation.


VALUE ALL PEOPLEOur world and our perception changes when we learn to add value to the lives of others and being able to lead with love and service.

LIVING INTENTIONALLYLiving a life of intention will help bring a person’s path into focus and give a life of meaning. When we focus on what we can do today, opportunities that we never saw before will appear before our eyes.

EXCEED EXPECTATIONS – Giving more than expected will accelerate your spiritual growth, give meaning to your life, and support the entire UMC organization and its mission.

GROWTH FOCUS – Growth supports energy, which is essential to live. The more we know, the more we realize we don’t know. Constant and never-ending improvement should be embedded in our DNA.

DEMONSTRATING A POSITIVE ATTITUDE – As you grow spiritually, you will realize that everything does truly happen for a reason- even if it isn’t currently apparent. Good will come out of every situation. Demonstrating a positive attitude will help foster that vision and relieve stress, worry, and anxiety.

TRANSFORMATION – Kindness and forgiveness transform everything. Letting the past go, will help you make peace in the present. Ask what in yourself is being mirrored in the other person. What are they teaching you?

LEADING BY EXAMPLE – The more leaders the better. Some people confuse being a leader with having a power position, which is false. Being a leader is all about influencing ourselves and those around us to be the best they can be.

MODEL CONSISTENCY – Despite the circumstance, remain with perseverance and commitment. We stay centered and act out of love; not react out fear.

BE A PERSON OF FAITH – Whatever our faith, background or belief is everyone is welcomed and loved at United Metaphysical Churches where diversity is truly an asset. Having faith can be faith in God, the Universe, the Light, your higher self. It is that force that draws every leader to change, to help others, to grow, and to influence others to do the same; while realizing your true power is Divine.

Recently I was reading a book by David Brooks titled “The Road to Character.”  The opening paragraph makes a distinction between resume virtues and eulogy virtues.  The resume virtues, he says, “are the ones you list on your resume, the skills that you bring to the job market and that contribute to external success.  The eulogy virtues are deeper. They’re the virtues that get talked about at your funeral, the ones that exist at the core of your being, whether you are kind, brave, honest or faithful; what kind of relationships you formed.”  The words we all want to hear,”Well done thou good and faithful servant.”

If you resonate with the above, consider visiting us, and see what we are offering as a spiritual organization.  Come bring a friend,  ALL ARE WELCOME!
