Elmwood Chapel Announcements


  • Supporting Our Missionaries

    The Missions Committee requested that we collect a second offering for missionary guests when they visit us. It is important that contributions for this second offering be over and above those contributions normally given towards the General Fund, for the church's regular operations. As long as contributions are not being deflected from the General Fund, we will continue this second-offering practice.

    In light of the above notice, on Sunday, June 25, 2017, we will be taking a second, special offering for Teen Challenge. Please come prepared to give if you are so inclined. We do ask that your giving to this special offering be in addition to your regular contribution to the General Fund. Thanks!

  • Meeting with Pastor Kohl

    Pastor Kohl keeps his own calendar. To schedule an appointment with him, you may contact him directly. If you don't have his contact information, you can call the church office to get it. He is in the office on Thursdays from 10:00AM - 2:00PM, but he is willing to meet with people at any time before or after. He is also willing to meet with people at any other mutually-convenient time during the week.

  • New Preschool Director

    Elmwood Chapel's Nursery School Board is pleased to announce that the Elmwood Christian Preschool has a new Director, Susan Weycker.

    Please pray for Susan as she begins this all-important position, and also for the teachers, children, and parents during this upcoming school year.

  • Adult Enrichment on Summer Hiatus

    There will be no Adult Enrichment for the duration of the summer. Classes will resume in September, when we'll continue with R.C. Sproul's video series Dust To Glory.

  • Transitional Prayer Requests
    • Pray that the Holy Spirit will be stirring in our hearts in such a way that He will enable us to crystallize His mission and His vision for our church so that we will surge forward.
    • Pray that He will teach us to better engage in persevering and expectant prayer until He provides all we need for our church to fulfill His mission.
    • Pray for Pastor Kohl as he works to form an accurate picture of the church, based on his interviews with groups and individuals.
  • Office Coverage

    During this time of transition at Elmwood Chapel, we will need some extra office coverage. If you are interested and available to cover the phones and/or do some light secretarial work, please contact Mike Linehan or Carole Nason. Thank you!

  • Dog Days of Summer

    During the hottest days of summer, our sanctuary sometimes gets uncomfortably warm. On such days, we usually move our service to the air-conditioned Fellowship Hall in the church's basement. Pastor Kohl is responsible for making that decision. He plans to make such decisions on Saturdays by 4:00PM, so that the space can be set up and so that the worship team can plan accordingly. Please be prepared for this possibility during the summer months. Thanks!
