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.

Now conducting in-person worship services. Masks required.

All other programs are still postponed until further notice.

 Recorded Sermons and Bulletins available online.

Dear Chapel Family and Friends,


Little by little, Chapel by the Sea is getting back to some “normal” operations and activities. The greeters and ushers will now hand out printed service bulletins and communication cards. You will also be able to use the hymnals and bibles stored under your seats. Yes, this seems like small a thing, but we hope this will enhance your worship experience. For those joining us online the hymn words and scriptures will still appear on the screen.


This Sunday, September 19, Dr. Jim continues the sermon series with “Songs of the Heart: The Voice in the Storm.”  Jack Garner will be our Liturgist and Emily Porter, Chair of the Missions & Outreach Committee, will give our Focus on Ministry.


                                          The first Sunday in October is designated as World Communion

                                         Sunday, which celebrates our oneness in Christ with all our

                                         brothers and sisters around the world, transcending boundaries

                                         of denomination, geography and language.


On Sunday, October 3, Chapel will celebrate Holy Communion. We would like you, our members and friends, to share an item(s) that represents the places you have travelled abroad. Those items will be displayed on the Communion table signaling our connectedness with the world community.

You may drop off your display items at the church office, Monday – Friday, 8:30 am – 12:30 pm or on Sundays when you come for worship. We will accept items through Wednesday, September 29. At the conclusion of the worship service on October 3, you may pick up your items.

                                           The Missions and Outreach Committee will meet on September 26

                                  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
