Whats New at Rural Chapel

As we continue to navigate a pandemic world, we recognize that everyone has their own level of comfort when returning to in person events.  We respect that this is a personal choice and are striving to create space for everyone at Rural Chapel, both online and in person.


All Saints Remembrance
All Saints Day is the Sunday after Halloween (November 5th this year) and is the day that we remember those who have passes away over the last year.  If you share the name of your loved one who you would like to be remembered, we will read their name along with ringing a bell in their honor during the Sunday Worship Service.  This has been a very meaningful practice in the life our church and is a chance for us to grieve publicly in a safe place.  Please email names to our Admin Jackie at ruralchapel@ruralchapel.org.  There will also be space for people to share names at the service if they are not emailed ahead of time.


Turkey Dinner

The Turkey Dinner will be held on Sunday, Nov. 12th from 12 pm to 6 pm this year! Put this on your calendar! Rural Chapel will have more details on this event soon!

New Member's Class

Pastor Craig is exploring the idea of offering a New Members Class this summer.  Please let him know if you are interested in becoming a member of the church.  The curriculum for the class is likely 2 meetings and 5 videos about growing in faith at Rural Chapel.  The goal of the class is to set everyone up for success in growing in faith as part of our church.  Email Pastor Craig at cmoock@ruralchapel.org


Alpha Class
Sept 6 - Nov. 15 6:30 PM - 8 PM
The Day Away is Oct 21 9 AM - 3PM

Alpha is the best tool that Pastor Craig knows of to explore faith, have an experience with Jesus, and move stagnant faith to a richer experience of God.  Alpha launches in-person online Sept 6th from 6:30-8 and will run through November 15th.  The Alpha Day Away will be October 21 from 9-3 and is an important part of the Alpha experience.  We would love to have you explore faith with us.  Please contact Pastor Craig with questions cmoock@ruralchapel.org.


Returning to Alpha
Alpha always needs leaders and helpers to make this powerful experience happen.  If you have been part of Alpha in the past, we need you to return as a leader or helper.  Here are some ways that you can be part of Alpha. 

  1. Invite - Please invite at least one person to Alpha.
  2. Table Helpers – They are people who have been part of Alpha and are returning to help the Table Leaders do what they do.
  3. Meal Makers – We have meals together as part of in-person Alpha.  Volunteering to make a meal helps Alpha get off the ground in the beginning.
  4. Table Leaders – Table Leaders are responsible to make guests feel welcome and help them engage the material presented in Alpha 
If you want to be part of Alpha again, please reach out to Pastor Craig at cmoock@ruralchapel.org
