Hallmark Events at The Chapel
Chapel Christmas Boutique
What started as a tiny two-day event in one room of Sea Gull Cottage 25 years ago has grown to be a primary funding source for the outreach programs of the Chapel. Every dollar after expenses is donated to help the needy in our neighborhoods and give college scholarship grants to deserving students. This fall, our Boutique will be held on Thursday, November 10.
Please check back. Information to come.
This is an annual event that begins with worship and ends with a special fellowship hour that features the best of Scottish fare. It is typically held on the Sunday that falls closest to Robert Burn’s Birthday in January.
The Kirkin’ o’ the Tartans … began in the Presbyterian Church as a declaration of ancestry and has its origins in the 18th century. The Chapel has been celebrating Scottish Sunday since 1997. Here, worshipers look forward to the colorful tartans, bagpipe music, and the festive reception following worship.
Souper Bowl of Caring
The nation’s biggest day of football is also the nation’s biggest day of giving to the hungry and homeless!
Across our nation, while fans are watching the Super Bowl, the Chapel participates in the Souper Bowl of Caring. Young people across America join together to address hunger, poverty and homelessness in their local communities. The Royal Poinciana Chapel Sunday School children and ushers invite you to participate by making a contribution at the end of service. All the money collected (100%) will be given to local Palm Beach charities that serve the hungry.
