Weekly Update

 Sunday, May 27, 2018


Dear Chapel Family,

It was a week that was busy, somber, and full of celebration.  I cannot say enough about how proud I was of our church this weekend and the many ways you served for the sake of the Gospel.  My prayer for us this week is that even though it may be more of a typical routine, we would still serve with the same fervor as last week.  My hope is that we would pray and seek opportunities to make the name of Christ known.  I cannot wait to worship with you all this Memorial Day weekend.
 
God Bless and thanks for being a part of the Chapel family.
