to know and serve Christ. We are a mission for Jesus Christ and
a church for all seasons - seasons of life - seasons of the year -
seasons of our growth as Christians.

Greetings Chapel Family and Friends,
This Sunday, July 25, Rev. Tom Brackbill will be our pulpit supply. We are pleased to welcome him back to Chapel. Rev. Brackbill is an honorably retired Pastor in the PC(USA) and currently serves as a Parish Associate at Faith Presbyterian Church in Cape Coral.
Following service, we will continue our fellowship in Silver Hall with coffee and refreshments.
The Mission and Outreach Committee will hold an IN-PERSON
meeting on July 25 at 11:15 a.m. following the Sunday Worship
Service. Grab a coffee and head to the Library. The committee
welcomes all newcomers and is open to new ideas on how we can
better serve our communities through mission outreach. Going
forward, the committee will meet the last Sunday of each month.
After a yearlong hiatuses, Sisters in Spirit (SIS) will hold its first
“in-person” meeting. Join SIS at the Tuckaway Café on Tuesday,
August 10 at 11 AM. An invitation has been extended to other
churches on the island. This will provide a great opportunity to
expand our fellowship. RSVP to the church office (239) 463-3173.
FINANCE and STEWARDSHIP
Chapel is now closing its books on fiscal year 2020-21 and we’re in the black! A combination of dedicated pledges, special gifts, careful spending and management (all called STEWARDSHIP) does work...THANK YOU, MEMBERS AND FRIENDS of Chapel by the Sea. We are so thankful for our great staff, Session, Deacons, and committees to keep CBTS a viable Christian voice in our community. We are thankful for our volunteers working with God’s Table and the continuing AA programs.
As we anticipate the August 8th arrival of our Interim Pastor, we pray together for the future of our congregation and its work in Ft. Myers Beach and beyond.
During this time of transition, if you need assistance such as a hospital or home visit, meals, special prayer, or guidance, please contact the Office Administrator, Denise Armstrong, at (239) 463-3173 ext. 20. Denise will forward your request to the appropriate Elder and/or Deacon.
