Our mission is to bring together an inter-denominational worship community through praise, proclamation, music, teaching and sharing. We welcome freedom of thought and opinion to all who enter. We believe the experience of loving fellowship will bring joy and peace to each person's spiritual journey.
Thank you to all who came out to celebrate our Quasquincentennial (125th) Anniversary on Sunday, July 28th!
We had an beautiful day and a full house for our celebration. Many couples who were married here at the chapel attended along with some who had been baptized in our special little chapel.
A special Anniversary Service, under the direction of Rev. Dr. Robert Perelli took place along with a special Music Program under the leadership of our Chapel Organist, Barbara Cosby in conjunction with Garrett Martin of Westminster Presbyterian Church and four musicians from the BPO. The service was conducted under a tent on the Chapel grounds with a reception and cake cutting following the service.
Thanks again for making this such a special occasion!
