If you have not been in the Chapel lately - or ever - you really should take a few minutes to step inside. It is a wonderfully calming place.

Atril Hayes of Atril’s Stained Glass in Hannibal recently finished the six stained glass windows and they were installed the week of August 20th. They are absolutely beautiful! Thanks to Bonnie Conover for leading this project, to the 10 women who worked with Atril to give input on the design and look over the production at various stages, and to Stu Bell and Charlie Buckman for installing the windows.

A service of dedication for the windows will be held in the chapel immediately after Sunday morning worship on Sept. 16.

The property team also finished the kneeler and are now working on the last piece, which is the baptismal font. Once the font is in place the Resurrection Chapel will be complete.

All of us on the Worship Ministry Team and the Columbarium Committee hope you will use this sacred space for prayer, meditation, and spiritual refueling. It is a perfect space to find comfort and solace in communion with the Holy Spirit.

From Concept to Fruition

Our New Resurrection Chapel & Columbarium

The seed was planted for a Christ Lutheran Church columbarium over two years ago. The variety of plans and ideas stemming from that initial suggestion have finally come to fruition in our new Resurrection Chapel & Columbarium. The columbarium is in place and the chapel was dedicated Jan. 21. The donor glass recognizing all those who contributed to this project has been mounted in the hallway. A new banner made by Katie Rupp is waiting to be hung; stained glass windows are being made and Stu Bell and his team are finishing up the last of the furnishings.

The Resurrection Chapel Committee held its last meeting March 2. Oversight for the chapel is now the responsibility of the Worship Ministry Team and the columbarium itself is the responsibility of the new Columbarium Oversight Committee. That committee was appointed by Council at its February meeting.

As chairman of the Resurrection Chapel Committee, I do want to take a bit of space in this final Seed update to say thank you. To the youth, thank you for your flexibility in adapting to a new youth room. To all of you who gave of your time, talent, and treasures in support of this project, bless you! Without you the Resurrection Chapel & Columbarium would not exist. To Stu Bell and his crew, thank you doesn’t seem adequate. The absolutely beautiful sacred space you created is awesome. And to the Resurrection Chapel Committee, thank you – not only for the hours upon hours you spent planning for and working on this project, but also for your patience and perseverance as we worked through a myriad of opportunities and challenges. The results of your labors are truly gratifying! And to everyone reading this, stay tuned...planning has just begun for the memorial garden to be created in the yard bordering the south wall of the chapel, nursery, and lounge!
