We are grateful that you have chosen to visit the Rural Chapel UMC website.  Contained within this site are pieces of our life as a congregation as we strive to follow Jesus in an increasingly complex world. We believe that you will be blessed if you take the time to join us in any of the parts of our life together. Rural Chapel is a place where you can learn about following Jesus in understandable ways while engaging in worship practices that are meaningful, relational, profound, grounded and fulfilling.
