Greetings Chapel Family and Friends,

This Sunday we will resume our Service of Healing, immediately following the worship service. This service is held the third Sunday of each month in the small Prayer Chapel in the back of the Sanctuary (formerly known the Bride’s Room).


We believe God’s purpose for us all is a life of wholeness for our mind, body, and spirit. The ministry of healing is an integral part of our Christian witness. Our prayers are complementary to the work of medicine and other forms of healing, which are also channels of God’s loving and transforming purpose. Come share in this ministry, to pray for yourself or for another person or situation. Those who wish may come forward for the anointing with oil and a brief moment to share concerns privately with the Pastor. Our hope is all who attend will feel God’s acceptance, love, and this will sustain us in our healing.


Dr. Jim continues the sermon series with “Songs of the Heart: Bless The Lord, My Soul.” Lynda Hicks will be our Liturgist.


Congregational Conversation – Join Dr. Jim and members of the Session for an open conversation on the direction of our community. Following services on Sunday,

October 24, we will gather in Silver Hall to discuss your favorite memory, your present status and your future dreams for Chapel by the Sea. Come and share your thoughts. Whom do we hope to meet as our future spiritual leader? Chapel will provide lunch.

For those unable to attend the in-person meeting or those still “north,” we are offering a ZOOM conversation on Sunday, October 31 at 11:30 a.m. (B.Y.O. lunch).

Finance and Stewardship



God of amazing grace, You have asked us to give of ourselves, wholly and completely. We have heard Your call and have responded with great affirmation and joy. Yet, there are times when we fall short. Times when we focus on the wrong things. Let us give to You our very best, our very worst, and everything in between. Help us to have faith, O God! Help us to give of our time, of our talent, and of our treasure through that faith. Help us to be blessed by that faith, in Jesus Christ’s holy name. Amen!
