Welcome to Mountain Chapel!

Relationships matter to God. The people at Mountain Chapel take this truth very seriously. Whether it’s in worship services, Bible studies or softball games, nothing is more important than growing relationships with God and with others. Relaxed, comfortable, open, loving…words that often describe the best of relationships, are words that are often used to describe life at Mountain Chapel.

I hope you will enjoy looking at the Mountain Chapel site. If you have any questions or cannot find what you need, please feel free to contact the church. If you have a need for prayer, we would love to pray for you and with you. Call the church office and ask for me or one of the other staff members, and we will pray for you immediately.

May God bless you and be real to you in the days ahead.

In Christ,
Tom Parrish
