Evangel Chapel recently completed construction of its 6,500 square foot Welcome Center, on Route 28, giving members of the congregation a warm and inviting place to welcome guests, gather to relax in, and enjoy some fellowship before and after services. 

The new center also includes new office area for their staff to work together in one centralized location. 

Groundbreaking for the center was held about 18 months ago, after several years of delays caused by the economic downturn and the challenges of financing such project. 

But ultimately, the congregation decided the project was too important to hold off.

“We are hoping this is a signal to the community that we have to believe in the future,” the Rev. Dennis Rabineau, pastor of Evangel Chapel, said as construction began. "Evangel is thankful for all that the Lord has blessed them with over their 62-year history."

The Rev.  Rabineau  noted over the years, the congregation has met in other church buildings, a school, the YMCA—and even a home at their beginning stages—so the completion of the Welcome Center has members "rejoicing over this latest sign of growth."

Evangel Chapel is one of the largest and oldest Pentecostal churches in the area, with a rich history of helping people in the community, aiding other churches, sending missionaries around the world and making an impact on the world around them.

The public is cordially invited to stop by for a service or to see the new facility at any time. For service times, call the chapel at 908-725-7777.
