After returning from vacation and study leave, I will be teaching an Inquiry & New Members Class from, 9:00-10:00am in the Great Hall on three consecutive Sundays: June 16, 23, 30. If you’re ready to make a commitment to the ministry here at Chapel in the Pines, or if you’re curious about what makes us unique as Presbyterians, I invite you to join us! At the end of our three part series, we will welcome into membership those who feel called to join our church family. For questions or suggestions, call me at 205-807-2646.
We're so glad you found us.
If you're wondering about faith and Christianity
perhaps Chapel can be a place to explore and learn.
If you're looking for companions on this amazing journey of life
perhaps we can walk alongside you, and offer a word of hope.
If you're already a part of our Chapel family
we hope this website helps you stay connected!
We thank God for bringing you here, and look forward to meeting face to face.
Give us a call anytime at 205-822-4210, or stop by at 2269 Chapel Road,

I’ll be out of the office from May 28-June 10, including a week of vacation and a week of study leave. I have found two great guest preachers to fill the pulpit while I’m gone. Rev. Debbie Feagin will preach and preside at the Lord’s Table on Sunday, June 2nd. Debbie always does a great job and we’re glad for her leadership! On Sunday, June 9th Chapel is doing something altogether new. We are hosting a seminary student, Aaron Macklin, from Beeson Divinity School. Aaron will be delivering the sermon and helping to write portions of the worship service. This is a great opportunity for him to practice preaching, and to be encouraged by this loving church family. I will be back on June 11th, but am always available by phone, at 205-807-2646. Love to you all!

Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) will be responding with One Great Hour of Sharing funds and members of the National Response Team to a devastating tornado that struck Moore, a populous suburb of Oklahoma City, Okla.
The 200 mph, F-4 tornado struck Monday evening and destroyed whole neighborhoods. Two elementary schools were in the tornado’s path and one school sustained a direct hit. Of the 51 confirmed deaths from the storm, 20 were children. Additional causalities are expected.
Five counties in Oklahoma have been declared federal disaster areas. The Oklahoma VOAD has reported that many unsolicited volunteers have been showing up. They have pleaded that the information get out thatvolunteers are not yet needed. First responders need first to complete their work.
