Welcome to the Longboat Island Chapel
The Longboat Island Chapel is a Christian-based interfaith church. Our mission is to be a congregation that is deeply ecumenical and committed to helping persons develop a vital faith in God. Our guiding principles are embodied in our Affirmation and Statement of Interfaith:
Affirmation: Love is the doctrine of this church; the quest of truth its sacrament; and service is its prayer.
To dwell together in peace, to seek knowledge in freedom,
to serve humanity in fellowship,
to the end that all souls shall grow into harmony with the Divine.
Thus do we covenant with each other, and with God.
Statement of Interfaith: It is an open door through which all may pass and be understood, to share their faith with anyone else without fear of ridicule or censure.
We invite you to join us for Sunday Worship at 10:00 a.m., followed by fellowship at 11:00 a.m. Consecrated elements for Communion are available in the Chapel on the second, third, fourth and fifth Sundays of each month.

WORSHIP SERVICE FOR MAY 3, 2020
The service features a homily by Rev. Bill entitled “There Is One Who Holds Us As We Fall”. It is a communion service, and may be more meaningful for those who elect to partake of their own elements at home using bread and wine/grape juice. Our Lord recognizes the need for symbolic practices during these difficult times. Please act in accordance with your personal needs. Please single left-click the arrow on the YouTube below.
