The Chapel By the Roadside

by Gertrude Magnuski

There's a little chapel by the roadside,
And every time I passed that way,
I had the strangest feeling - like someone calling,
"Come in, my child, and pray."

As usual I was in a hurry
I had so many errands to do.
But I said to myself - sometime I'll stop;
And I really meant it too!

It was a beautiful April evening,
The chapel doors were open wide
Again, I had that urgent feeling,
So I stopped and went inside!

That was the night I found my Savior!
That was the night I found my Lord!
That was the night my life changed forever!
That was the night I accepted God!


Please join with us as we gather together for worship

Sunday Morning Worship at 9:30 AM

Our morning worship experience is an hour and a half of interactive worship, learning and fellowship where you are invited to be yourself as we praise God, experience God's Word, fellowship with God's people, enjoy all that God has created, and seek to respond to God's call in our lives.  There is a separate Learning Time for children and youth.

Sunday Evening Worship at 7:00 PM

Our evening worship experience is a fairly traditional, hour long, Vesper worship service consisting of favorite hymns, responsive readings and a sermon.

Bible Studies

The Wednesday evening Ladies Bible Study meets at 6:30pm at Linda Gomes' home and is studying "Cultivating Contentment."  The Thursday evening Bible Study meets at 7:00 pm at the Riley home, 911 Crandall Road, and is beginning a study of the book of Proverbs.

The Acoaxet Chapel is pleased to welcome Pastor Mark Gelinas and his wife Val to our community.  Pastor Mark and Val come to us from the Pacific Union Church.

Acts Chapter 2, Verses 42-47

They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.
Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles.
All the believers were together and had everything in common.
Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need.
Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts.
They broke bread together in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts,
praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people.
And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
