Chapel Church Groups

Blooming Plant Partners is a group who plant and care for the flowers, both indoors and out, at our church. They can always use extra help, so green thumbs or not, you will be welcome to join them.

Book Club is a group of avid readers who meet every other month, at the church, to review a book that they had chosen to read. A variety of books are chosen by the group, so join them and share your favorites.

Card Makers is a group that meets every 3rd Saturday at the church from 9:00 AM to12 noon. Each month, a destination for the cards is chosen from nursing homes, hospitals, soldiers, first responders and others. The card design, supplies and instructions are provided. Experience is not required, so feel free to join them in this fun project!

Chancel Choir is led by our choir director, Louise Piker, and meets for practice twice weekly from September through May (weather permitting). They sing at worship services on the second and fourth Sundays and also for special events such as Christmas Eve, Easter, and some Bereavement services. If you feel the call to sing, meet them at the church for one of their rehearsals.

The Men’s Breakfast Club has been meeting at the Madison Family Restaurant at 9:00 AM on the first Saturday of each month. This is a time of fellowship for them. They also have been successful in planning and preparing of the Good Friday Breakfast at the church. They welcome any and all men of the community to attend their ongoing monthly Saturday breakfast.

The Prayer Shawl Makers meet upstairs in the Fellowship Hall on Wednesday mornings from 9:30 AM to 12 noon. The crocheters and knitters make the prayer shawls and then, as they work on their shawls, pray for the potential recipient that the shawl might bring them peace, healing and comfort. The shawls are then blessed and given to men, women and children who are ill or suffering a loss. Anyone in our congregation can take one and give it to someone who needs it. We have heard from many grateful recipients who cherish them.

Quilters, Etc. also meets upstairs in the Fellowship Hall on Wednesday mornings from 9:30 AM to 12 noon. They accept premade quilt tops, sandwich them with new batting and backing, then hand quilt them on a frame and bind the edges on completion. They charge a fee based on the difficulty of the project. The income is used for special church projects, college scholarships and other missions.

All are welcome to join them at the quilting frame, or to make prayer shawls, to work at their own special projects or to learn the arts of hand quilting, crocheting or knitting (thus the Et cetera). They are a warm, supportive, friendly group and they occasionally go out to lunch together!

Scrubbing Angels are a group of sweet young-at-heart people who get together for breakfast every third Thursday of the month at 9:00 AM. From there, the Scrubbing Angels go to Chapel Church and scrub and clean the sanctuary and the Gathering Area. They want to make sure God’s House is in order when we come there to worship on Sunday mornings. They are always willing to have new people, so feel free to bring your bucket and your cleaning rags and join them!

Community Groups

Have you ever wanted a community volunteering opportunity, but didn’t know where to start? You can solve that by joining the group of volunteers from Chapel Church who volunteer together on Friday mornings once a month at the Madison Food Center on a regular basis as they are scheduled. The center is set up in aisles with shelves of food, like the grocery store. The volunteers assist the consumers with their shopping. Of course, in true Methodist tradition, the volunteer group goes out afterward for lunch together.

The Cub Scouts meet at Chapel Church on the first and third Monday nights of the month at 7:00 PM. This is a very active troop and their membership has increased under the leadership of Mike and Robin Davis. The scouts do activities at the church as well as have meetings. They helped with refurbishing the outside Chapel in the Woods last year as we prepared it for outside worship on Sunday mornings. They use it for some of their outdoor activities as well. Be sure to check out the area as all are welcome to spend time there.

The Girl Scouts meet at Chapel Church on the second and fourth Friday nights of the month at 6:00 PM under the leadership of Alexis Foster. This troop does both indoor and outdoor activities at the church as well as have meetings there. Both of the Scout troops got very creative this year for Scout Sunday at the church. Since we’ve been live streaming the Sunday morning services, they could not do a personal presentation. Therefore, they became individual screen stars as they made a videos and submitted them as virtual presentations during the Sunday service. They were a joy to watch and see some of their activities.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meets at Chapel Church on Monday nights. The women meet at 6:30 PM in the conference room for a Bible study called Big Book. There is a regular meeting for everyone at 7:30 PM, which is held in the Fellowship Hall.
