2020 Summer Worship Schedule

The 2020 Schedule

Arising from concerns about the Covid-19 virus, St. John’s will not be holding its usual summer services at the Chapel this year.
In their place, the Chapel is providing two alternatives for Sunday worship. We are airing four Chapel services via video, with two each in July and August. These will be available for viewing on either Zoom or Facebook.
If you would like to watch it on Zoom, we will provide meeting instructions to you if you email us at:
Our new Facebook page, St. Johns-On-The-Lake-Chapel, can be located through your personal Facebook page.
In addition to the video services, we are opening the Chapel every Sunday from July 5th through August 23rd from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. for silent prayer and meditation.

Four Video Services

Sunday, July 12th:  Reverend Neil Wilson, Congregational,
10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Sunday, July 19th:  Reverend Phil Polhemus, United Methodist
10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Sunday, August 9th:  Reverend Robin Soller, Episcopal
10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Sunday, August 16th:  Hanna Scanlon, Presbyterian
10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.

Prayer and Meditation Hour at the Chapel

The Chapel will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. each Sunday from July 5th through August 19th for silent prayer and meditation. An organist will be playing during many of these Sundays. The sessions will be hosted by Chapel Association board members and friends.
Given the concerns about the Covid-19 virus, the following guidelines will apply:
-Everyone must wear a mask.
-Masks will be available at the door if needed.
-Social distancing must be maintained with separation of at least six feet between non-group visitors.
-Seating will be limited to 25 people in total to ensure distancing.
-Lysol and hand sanitizer will be available.
-The chapel tower will continue to be closed to visitors.

  1. Would like to visit chapel,and say some prayers
    Will chapel be open for visitors on June 4,5,or 6th

    1. Dear Michael,
      We would be happy to open the chapel for you on either June 4, 5, or 6th. You can e-mail my husband, John, or myself, Linda Hopper, co-presidents of the chapel board, to explore what time and which date is preferable. Our e-mail is hoppers43jl@gmail.com.
      Just this weekend we met with the board and made the decision to cancel the summer services and instead, open the chapel on Sunday mornings for prayer and meditation. People would be allowed inside with masks and be asked to social distance.

      Thank you for your interest in St. John’s.
      Linda Hopper
