The Chapel By the Roadside

by Gertrude Magnuski

There's a little chapel by the roadside,
And every time I passed that way,
I had the strangest feeling - like someone calling,
"Come in, my child, and pray."

As usual I was in a hurry
I had so many errands to do.
But I said to myself - sometime I'll stop;
And I really meant it too!

It was a beautiful April evening,
The chapel doors were open wide
Again, I had that urgent feeling,
So I stopped and went inside!

That was the night I found my Savior!
That was the night I found my Lord!
That was the night my life changed forever!
That was the night I accepted God!


Please join with us as we gather together for worship

Sunday Morning Worship at 9:30 AM

Our morning worship experience is an hour and a half of interactive worship, learning and fellowship where you are invited to be yourself as we praise God, experience God's Word, fellowship with God's people, enjoy all that God has created, and seek to respond to God's call in our lives.  There is a separate Learning Time for children and youth.

Sunday Evening Worship at 7:00 PM

Our evening worship experience is a fairly traditional, hour long, Vesper worship service consisting of favorite hymns, responsive readings and a sermon.

Bible Studies

Wednesday morning Bible Study is held at 10:00 am at the Baughan home, 509 River Road, Westport, and is currently examining the Psalms.  Thursday evening Bible Study is held at 7:00 pm at the Riley home, 911 Crandall Road, Tiverton, and is exploring the book of Romans.

Our Pastor - Rev. Robert F. Hollis
Bob & Carol
Pastor Bob is a graduate of Springfield College and Andover Newton Theological Seminary.
He is married to Carol Mauro and has three children:  Andrew, Amy, and AnaCapri.

It is with great sorrow that we prepare to bid farewell to Reverend Hollis and his family.  Pastor Bob will be taking over the Greater Dartmouth Church community in Foster on January 1st, allowing his to spend more time with his family while nurturing the churches of that community.  We know this is God's will for him as well as for our church and we look forward to seeing where God is leading us.

Assistant Pastor - Chris Nearpass

Acts Chapter 2, Verses 42-47

They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.
Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles.
All the believers were together and had everything in common.
Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need.
Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts.
They broke bread together in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts,
praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people.
And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
