“So Peaceful”

What a beautiful and peaceful place, although not verfy religous I very much enjoyed the feeling whilst there, a true peace away from the rat race.

“Beautiful building, okay preaching”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2003

We attended an early service on Palm Sunday. The chapel is beautiful and it was a great experience to worship with the view of the surrounding woods. We were a bit disappointed to see only about 15 people in the chapel but it was the early (9am) service.The chapel service itself was advertised as "non-denominational" but I'd have to say it leaned toward a fundamentalist/pentecostal theme. We expected to hear at least some mention of Palm Sunday but heard nothing about the significance of the day. I'm not really sure what point the preacher was trying to make, but he took of in search of lots of rabbits and didn't always get back.

take the time to go and visit this chapel. Wow, this large space will calm you after the bumpy path to the chapel. This was rated one of the most important building in america
