2020 Summer Services Cancelled
The 2020 schedule of summer church services has been cancelled due to the risks and challenges associated with the COVID-19 virus. We are developing plans to provide a few video services during July and August for the benefit of our summer congregation. Please check back as July approaches to find the schedule of those services.
Plans in-process to Open the Chapel Sundays for Prayer and Meditation

These sessions will be strictly monitored by members of the Chapel’s board. The following tentative requirements will be maintained:
-Everyone must wear a mask.
-Masks will be available at the door.
-Social distancing must be maintained with separation of at least six feet.
-Seating will be limited.
-A maximum capacity of 15 people will be allowed in at any one time.

St. John’s Woodland Village
The southern side yard of the Chapel property welcomes enterprising youngsters who would like to build miniature log cabins in our St. John’s Woodland Village. The Village is intended to embody the all- embracing spirit of our church family and the bonds we all share in the shadow of this beautiful sanctuary. The Village also commemorates the earliest community of farmers on Bear Island, the very first of whom, Robert Bryant, built his house – a log cabin – c. 1802 on this hill top. By the 1830s, there were more than a half dozen families living year-round on South Bear. Everyone is welcome to join in.
