OUR BUILDINGS ARE LOST BUT 

OUR FAITH COMMUNITY IS SAFE

 

 

Hello Chapel Family, 

Saturday, October 1, Denise Armstrong, our Church Administrator, and Anita Turner, one of our elders, made the trek over the bridge and down the road to the church to do an assessment. What they saw was devastating. Total destruction of our building. It still stands, but the front and the walls are gone. It breaks my heart that we cannot gather for worship, once again. It's heartbreaking to see these pictures. But we are the Chapel by the Sea, and that is only our building. We are the church. So, we pull together now and draw strength from each other as the congregation, and move forward to rebuild our building, and our future.

 

Like many of you, my home was devastated by the surge through the first floor. We've lost all our main living area and contents. I'll keep you informed as we make progress in the recovery and rebuilding. What happens at my house happens at your house happens at our church. God leads us forward together, to be his people, our church, Chapel by the Sea Presbyterian Church. May God's peace and blessing keep you in all circumstances, now and forever.  Amen.  

 

Dr. Jim Berger
