Keeping King's Chapel's members and friends connected each week between Sunday worship services with updates from the Parish House.
From the Minister:  

With delight, we welcome Dean Denniston as our guest preacher this Sunday. Dean is a long-time member of King's Chapel, and served as our Senior Warden for four
years, until 2014. Dean is a graduate of Yale Divinity School, where he earned his Masters of Divinity degree. He has preached for many years at King's Chapel,
especially at our Wednesday services.

Dean will preach on texts from Genesis and Romans, about the wrestling Jacob did with God all night, and the wrestling we all continue to do with God, wondering with the Apostle Paul why we don't always do what we know is right. Part of the lesson seems to be in continuing to wrestle with God, not giving up. Some of the lesson seems to do with holding on to God, as God holds on to us.

Come and learn more on Sunday from this thoughtful King's Chapel leader.

Summer Services

During August, there will be no Morning Light or Wednesday Communion services.  Morning Prayer services will continue each Sunday at 11 AM.  

We welcome everyone to join us back to our full schedule beginning again in September. 

Enjoy the summer!

Accessibility Assists

Our beautiful Georgian sanctuary designed by Peter Harrison and completed in 1754, has been lovingly maintained by the congregation since its completion. One of the box pews has been made wheel-chair accessible. Ushers are available to assist those who are wheelchair-bound to that pew.

A sound system has been installed in the sanctuary of The Chapel to amplify the sound during worship services. Hearing assistance devices are available for your use. Please see an Usher for assistance.
