A Celebration of Life Service
in Memory of Roger S. Welton
November 7, 2020
Chapel by the Sea was the first church on our island and remains
a church for the community, welcoming all people seeking
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.
All programs are postponed until further notice.
Sermons and Bulletins available online.

Greetings Chapel Family & Friends,
We trust that you and your family, however you celebrated this Thanksgiving, had a meaningful day, whether it was a small in-person gathering with immediate family and friends, an across-the-country ZOOM happy hour (a first for many of us) or an outside meal under a shady tree or covered lanai.
Can we be thankful in this moment? Yes, the light at the end of the tunnel seems to be shining a little brighter with the anticipation of three vaccines on the horizon. Check out the Deacon’s Corner on GRATITUDE.

Even though the Thanksgiving holiday is over, I felt like the
subject of GRATITUDE is an attitude that we should carry
over throughout the year.
The dictionary describes the word GRATITUDE as the following: the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.
Once again, I referred to the Men’s Devotional Bible for a reading by Lewis B. Swedes:
Rejoice: Giving and Gratitude go together like humor and laughter,
like having one’s back rubbed and the sigh that follows, like a blowing
wind and the murmur of wind chimes. GRATITUDE keeps alive the
rhythm of grace given and grace grateful, a lively lift that lightens a heavy world.
The scriptures that refer to GRATITUDE is in Colossians Chapter 3: 15-17.
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as member of one body
you were called to peace, and be thankful. 16Let the message of Christ dwell
among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom
through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with
GRATITUDE in your hearts. 17And whatever you do, whether in word or deed,
do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
Until Next Time, Blessings.
