THE CHAPELINE - May 10, 2022

FROM Rev. Brock Patterson

Hello Chapel Family!

As our snowbirds return home and our tropical residents settle in for the summer, please make it a priority to stay connected with your Chapel family! We are here in worship each Sunday morning at 10 am (EST) throughout the summer. Our online audio and visual quality is exceptional, and whether you watch the service live or sometime later in the week, you can always stay connected with your Chapel family. 

In addition to staying connected through worship, it's also very helpful to stay connected through this weekly newsletter.  Our Chapeline newsletter provides us with the necessary and timely information about events, activities, and other opportunities designed to assist us in our Faith journey. Especially in regards to the needs of our community (which are often greatest during the summer months), we will keep you informed of the "what and when" so that the Chapel continues supporting those in need.

Last, please don't forget your Chapel in your financial contributions this summer. The work of the Church never stops. Need is always present. People are hurt and families still need assistance. Your continued financial support through the summer is vital as we continue to serve as the heart, hands, and feet of God in our community.

I look forward to seeing you in worship, online, and in the Chapeline newsletter. Please continue to be safe and healthy. Your Chapel family loves and misses you when you aren't here!

God Bless. Brock.

May Collection: Baby Items

"Cyesis" Program at Riverview High School

The Charitable Outreach Committee will be collecting baby items during the month of May. These will be shared with the Cyesis Program at Riverview High School in Sarasota. This is a daycare located within the high school for the children of high school students. It allows students to continue their high school program while having their children in a safe environment. Please consider donating to this very worthwhile cause!
