Visiting Pastors at
Chapel in the Pines
At Chapel in the Pines, we invite visiting pastors from various recognized Christian Denominations to lead our Sunday worship. We strive for a balanced representation and look forward to scripture-based joyful messages of God’s everlasting faithfulness, love and grace.
Our music program is rich in both leadership and talent and we are striving to connect with and involve new members of all ages and Christian traditions.
Chapel has a year-round service at 11:00 a.m. In the summer (Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend) we hold an additional service at 8:30 a.m. in our Fellowship Hall.
At 9:30 a.m, there is an Adult Education (Forum) discussion in our Fellowship Hall that is often led by the visiting pastor.
Every Sunday Communion is observed at the Chapel.
Communion is shared after the sermon and before the benediction. Communion is open to all who wish to share by faith. Each pastor is assisted in the distribution of the Elements by our Communion Assistants at the front of the church. The order of worship is maintained by the Chapel. The visiting pastor may choose to wear a robe and vestments if that is their custom.
There is a two-part-compensation for preaching at the Chapel. An honorarium of $140.00 per Sunday is paid in the months where there is only one service while the summer honorarium is $180.00 because of the additional early service. The second part of the compensation is the use of our on-site cabin for up to five days (Thurs. - Tues.).
Our visiting pastors come from multiple states as well as various communities throughout Colorado and some have been coming for several years.
