Arise Community Chapel

Welcome to Arise Community Chapel

We at Arise Community Chapel are grateful to be a part of the opportunity to further God’s kingdom in the Cressona/Schuylkill Haven Pennsylvania area. God blessed us with a small chapel on the corner of Wilson and Schuylkill Street in the Cressona Borough that we will use for His glory. This chapel was formerly referred to as Grace and Truth Chapel and was a part of the Pottsville Assembly of the Brethren. In June of 2022 we were given the opportunity to move forward with starting the process of the transfer of ownership which took place on September 20, 2022. Since then, we have consulted professionals in their respective fields and accessed the property and the building and have come up with the estimated expenses we expect to incur to be able to renovate the building. We began the renovation project in November of 2022 and completed it enough to use the building in June 2023. We are currently holding services and using the building since June 11, 2023. We welcome you to join us for services every Sunday at 9:30AM.


Our Vision

Our vision is to impact the community by sharing Jesus’s love through vacation bible school, community meals, bible studies, kid’s clubs, and Sunday morning services. We also hope to join in volunteer work with the already locally active food pantries and other charities that are making a difference in our local community.

Support The Chapel

We are looking at an estimated cost of about $150,000 for the remodel/restoration project. This will include new drywall, insulation, concrete foundation and excavation work, handicap access, new roofing and siding, facia, and spouting. New doors and windows will be needed as well as a new heating/cooling system, electrical work, painting, and flooring. With the building being closed for all those years and moisture in the basement there is a significant mold problem that will need remediation as well. While most of these remodel projects have been completed and the financial needs have been met, we still have other remodel projects pending that need funding. These future projects include – a railing by the front sidewalk for child safety, finishing the basement, and repaving the parking lot. We also have ministry projects in the community that we look forward to helping with. If you would like to support Arise Community Chapel, you can donate directly.
