No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.
We are a church that wants to be clear that everyone is welcome. We have people of all ages in our congregation. We enjoy children and want them to know that they are welcome. Our focus on the needs of children is part of our legacy as the Sayles Chapel was built as a memorial to children of the Sayles family who died at an early age. We are a community of faith that often thinks of itself as a church family.
We are a group of people with varying backgrounds and interests. Our ages range from newborn to more than 90 years old. Some families have been coming here for generations while others have been among us just a short while. Some of us grew up going to church while others didn’t enter a church until later in life. We welcome everyone who wants to worship God and grow in knowledge, understanding, goodness and grace.
As a church established in the Congregational tradition of the United Church of Christ, we embrace our connection with the UCC as a welcoming, justice-minded Christian community. At a time when religion is too often portrayed as narrow-minded and exclusive, many are raising their VOICES for an alternate vision. We here at Chapel Street are among those voices who affirm that our church will be a community in which
Where God is all-loving and inclusive,
Where the Church of Jesus Christ welcomes and accepts everyone as they are,
Where your mind is nourished as much as your soul,
Where Jesus the healer meets Jesus the revolutionary,
Where together we grow a just and peaceful world.
Chapel Street Congregational Church is an active, progressive, renewed faith community located in the historic village of Saylesville in the southeastern corner of Lincoln, RI.
