25 Years at Jerusalem Chapel

On Sunday, March 29, the congregation of Jerusalem Chapel (Churchville, Va.) honored Pastor Denny and Annette Sites, who have now served the church for 25 years.
The celebration included musical favorites of Pastor Denny, and a video of the Sites family covering the past 25 years. A gift was presented from the congregation.
When Denny came here 25 years ago, 38 people attended his first service. Today we average 400. Under his ministry we added a sanctuary seating 300 and a fellowship hall. We held two services in the chapel until the current building was constructed, at which point we went back to one service. But a few years later, we had to go back to two services.   
A few years ago, a fire destroyed the 125-seat chapel that was over 100 years old. That was a sad day for many in the congregation, but now an educational building stands where the chapel once stood. We don’t always understand why things happen, but the Lord had bigger and better things in store for us. 

The Lord has truly blessed us under Pastor Denny’s ministry. We are also blessed to have Associate Pastor Matt Hann and his wife, Emily; and Youth Pastor Todd Yoder and his wife, Amy.
We thank the Lord for the staff he has given us and for what He has done for us as we look forward to the future.
