How can I watch the service livestream?
You can go to https://leroychapel.org/livestream on Sunday morning to watch the service live. Recordings will be available shortly after on our Sermons page (https://leroychapel.org/sermons).
How can we be praying well during this season?
Pastor Jeff has put together a prayer guide to help guide times of prayer regarding COVID-19.
Am I able to give online during this season?
Yes, giving can be done online at https://leroychapel.org/giveonline. Giving can be set up as one-time or recurring. Please know that online giving reduces the work on our administrative team each week, so we strongly encourage you to give online, if you are able.
Someone I know in the church may not be getting these updates.
Please consider any friends or newcomers and pass this information on; there are no concerns with communicating clearly!
If someone is not getting these updates, it likely means that our contact information for that family is out of date and needs to be updated. Please direct them to fill out an online connect form (https://leroychapel.org/getconnected), and they'll be included in all future updates.
