From Rev. Brock Patterson

Hello Chapel Family! I hope and pray that your summer is going well! Need something cool during one of the hottest summers on record? This week at the Chapel, we are beginning a new summer Bible Study and Worship series entitled, "I Didn't Know That Came From The Bible!". Each Wednesday, we will study a different, modern idiom that originated over 2,000 years ago in the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures. We'll explore their history, context, and contradictions while exploring modern interpretations. Take a quick look at this week's Worship information (below) for an example of our upcoming topics.

We will meet for Bible Study in person at the Chapel on Wednesdays, at 10 am (EST). If you cannot attend in person, please join us on Wednesdays online via ZOOM at 5:30 pm (EST). Just click this link ( at 5:30 pm (EST) each Wednesday to join in August and September. 

Remember! This is another Study AND Worship series, so this week's theme will also be highlighted in Sunday Worship through music, liturgy, and preaching. Previously, the Worship and Study Series at the Chapel have been very well-received, so this one should be equally cool. Please consider joining us in person or online for Worship each Sunday, 10:00 am (EST).

Though it's summertime, we're not slowing down at the Chapel! Things are nice and cool here but it's not nearly as cool without you!  Spend some time with YOUR Chapel this summer and join us in person or online!

God Bless. Brock.
