The Council of Hedges Chapel continues to monitor health related concerns regarding the COVID virus and its variants. Masks are no longer mandated in the Chapel. If not vaccinated, or if you prefer to maintain greater social distancing, you may use the adjacent Fellowship Hall which is equipped with an effective audio system. Bibles and Hymnals are available there as well. The use of masks is strongly suggested in the Fellowship Hall.  We wish everyone to feel comfortable and welcome while practicing familiar safety protocols.

Since our site is getting filled with lots of good information, we've added a site search function so details are easier to find.  It's located at the top of each page.  Like any search engine, it's not perfect but it will get you started.
