No Friday International Dinner this Friday, Apr 18, but other Easter Activities

Chapel Internationals Happy Easter Cross


This Friday (April 18) we DO NOT have the Chapel Internationals Friday Dinner, because of the Easter Holiday.

However, on Friday evening you are welcome to attend a Church service at The Chapel and see how Christians observe GOOD FRIDAY (which is what the Friday before Easter Sunday is called). The GOOD FRIDAY Church service begins at 7:00pm on Friday evening, April 18, 2014.

Also, you are all welcome to attend The Chapel Sunday Easter service! It is one of the most beautiful times to come to a church service.  The church is usually decorated with many flowers, the music is engaging and beautiful to listen to as well.  There are 4 different times you could come and attend on Easter Sunday at The Chapel –>7:30am,  9:00 am,  10:40am,  7:00pm.  Please come if you can…  :-)

I hope to see you all next Friday (April 25) evening (6:30pm) at the Chapel Internationals Friday Dinner!!
