We are collecting food boxes for our daily bread. You can pick up a box and a list in the Parish Hall. Once you have collected the items on the list and filled your box, return it to the Parish hall. All of the boxes are due back in the Parish Hall by December 16th. The cost to fill each box is close to $25.00. We can also take donations if you would prefer. Make checks out to the Chapel with Christmas boxes in the memo.

In the glow of candlelight, the choir will sing this magical and reflective service using music of Thomas Tallis, David Mck Williams, John Rutter, Walter Pelz and Stephen Paulus. Congregational hymns will include The Day Thou Gavest and Abide With Me.
