Chapel Camp 2018

Now in Our Eleventh Year of Chapel Camp

This summer Emmanuel Church will be worshipping at 10:00 a.m. in the beautiful Lindsey Chapel. After the service, we will gather for some cool drinks and a bite to eat and then engage in a variety of activities that will strengthen our connections to one another, to our traditions, and to our larger community and the world.

The Chapel Choir

One morning you’re going to rise up singing! The Chapel Choir is a non-auditioned group that meets each Sunday at 9:00 to rehearse for the 10:00 service. Singers should have some experience with choral music and be able to read music and match pitch. Please let the Chapel Choir Director Kevin Neel ( know if you plan to sing!
