The church is not a building; the church is people who love and serve the Lord.  We do not cease to worship and serve the Lord when we leave the building where we gather for worship.  Go be the church in the world.

Nestled in a pristine valley in the Catoctin mountains, Eyler's Valley Chapel offers a unique and wonderful worship experience.  Located 6 miles from Thurmont, MD between Frederick MD and Gettysburg, PA, the chapel allows visitors to step back in time.  Built in 1857, the chapel has no electricity: 72 candles glow with light, the treadle organ provides music, and the church bell placed in December of 1904 rings out the start of each service.  Other than replacing the old coal stove with two gas heaters and keeping things cleaned up and painted, the chapel remains pretty much as it was a hundred plus years ago.  

We welcome you to join us for worship any Sunday evening at 7pm.  In the winter services may be cancelled due to inclement weather.

The chapel is a non-denominational house of worship that seeks to honor God through worship and service.  Our congregation is made up of simple people whose lives have been changed by the The Savior as well as those seeking a refuge from the storms of life.  The chapel has hosted visitors from all over the world.  People who are in the area and hear about this quaint house of worship take time to stop by.  If you are coming to the area or already live here, we would love to have you come and worship with us.  We promise you will be blessed!

During the Christmas season the chapel holds services starting in mid-December and culminating with 5 services Christmas Eve.  The schedule will be located on the "Schedule of Events" page and is published in November.
