“The Chapel” is a Christian fellowship meeting in the Washington/Phillipsburg area. Our Mission Statement is as follows:

"We exist to make more and better disciples for the Glory of God." (Matthew 28:19-20)

We believe that this is done best in the context of vital relationships, first with Him, then with each other, and with our community. We are a growing church family in your community and would love to serve you in any way possible.

Please feel free to contact us.

Volunteer Help

So what can you do? Pray about how God would like you to participate? Pray that God brings many children to our program.  Pray that they hear God's message and are led to salvation.

Here are lead positions with filled or vacant:

  • CO-DIRECTOR- filled (Darla Morris)

  • MUSIC- filled (Sandy Wagner)

  • GAMES- filled (Jonathan Slack)

  • REGISTRATION- filled (Darla Morris)

  • MIDDLE SCHOOL PROGRAM - filled (Jess and Bill Dean)

  • CRAFTS  - filled (Danielle Vanderbeek)

  • BIBLE STORY - filled (Scott and Janice Thompson)

  • SNACKS - filled (Bonita Duryea/Ashley Lorena)

  • PRESCHOOL - filled

Each of those areas needs a couple of helpers but most importantly, we need guides. This is a perfect job for teenagers... high school or college ages are perfect for this, but adults and moms are great too!!! This is an area where I have sadly not received a lot of feedback. We definitely need LOTS and LOTS of help to make this happen. If you wish to serve please complete the volunteer form available online or at church.

In His Service,
Sherri and Darla

Core Christianity Class

Core Christianity Class

Core Christianity Class

For Christians who want to get a good foundation in the basics, this study is a complete, self-contained study on the Christian faith. For Christians who want to go deeper, each lesson compliments a chapter of Michael Horton’s book Core Christianity: Finding yourself in God’s Story.

This is a 10-week class on Wednesdays, April 24th - June 26th from 7:00-8:30 PM at The Chapel. Signup sheet on the table in the foyer. See Joe Depinto.

Core Christianity exists to engage the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe the core message of Christianity is still capable of renewing the church.

“We provide resources for reformation to Christians and churches, so that they can bring the good news to the world more clearly and effectively.” Michael Horton
