Who We Are
Chapel In The Pines started out as a 'Drive-in Church' 49 years ago. We held music concerts on Saturday nights and expanded that until we have two nights of two concerts Friday and Saturday.
We have soloists, duets, trios, quartets, a variety of family groups as well as Gospel Bluegrass groups. They come from Northern and Southern Michigan as well as the east side of the state and even out of state. Names like 'The Foresters (Mark & Andrea, Tyler & Trevor), 4 One Quartet, Skylight Quartet, Martha Vugteveen, and many others that have graced our platform over the years. We do not charge to get in to the concert; however, we do take Love Offerings to support the Gospel Music Barn & Chapel and to pay all these people that come to share the Love of Christ through their music.
We also have a kitchen that serves meals before the concerts Friday and Saturday at reasonable rates and there is always ice cream available.
Check our schedule for your favorite group and come join us for great music, fellowship, and delicious food. It's grrrrrreat!
Time to Close This Season's Programs
Have we enjoyed some fantastic music and groups this summer? Guess what! Next year we are going to enjoy some of the same groups and MORE! The Bontrager Family Singers, the Blackwood Brothers Quartet, Justified (Quartet), Stronghold, Lewis Revival, His Harmony Quartet, Gospelmen, Down Home, and many, many more. Maybe even more FREE ICE CREAM!
The end of July will bring our 50 th Anniversary celebration. And let's not forget FOOD! I think that for her first year managing our kitchen, Barbara did a Grrreat job. Our new staff did a marvelous job. If anyone has any suggestions on how we can improve any part of our program, please, PLEASE, let us know. You may talk to any Board of Trustee or let me know and we will do our best to correct, resolve, and/or fix or improve what we do out here. This is the Lord's work and we want to do our best for Him.
Thank you for your Love, Prayers, Financial giving, and most of all for coming out so we can keep the Gospel Music Barn and Chapel going.
In His Service!

and The Board of Trustees
