Additional Info About Our Church

Grace Chapel began in August of 1951 when a group of believers under the leadership of Rev. Donald Martin determined to establish a sound Bible preaching church in the Shamokin community. (The Charter was signed by the church on August 27, 1951 and approved by the Court of Common Pleas on September 10th, 1951.) This newly formed group purchased the old Lafayette School building located at 1300 Spruce Street in Shamokin for $3,800.00. The facility was remodeled to accommodate a church ministry and served that purpose until 1964 when the church purchased the Overlook School for $3,000.00 and moved the ministry to its present location in Overlook. The school building was built in the early 1900s and needed to be remodeled. On September 27, 1964 the building was officially dedicated to the Lord. The parsonage was built in 1972 and the new Sanctuary was built adjoining the existing building in 1975. Throughout its history Grace Chapel has had a strong emphasis on missions and active youth and children's ministries.

Church Covenant: Having been born again by the grace of God through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and being justified on the ground of His shed blood and having confessed our faith before men, we do now, in the presence of God and this assembly, most solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another, as one body in Christ. We engage, therefore, by the power of the Holy Spirit, to walk together in Christian love, to strive for the advancement of this church in knowledge, holiness and comfort, to promote its prosperity and spirituality, to sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline and doctrines, to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, the relief of the poor and the spread of the Gospel through all nations. We also engage to maintain family and personal devotions, to educate our children and acquaintances. We engage, too, by the grace and power of God that, as strangers and pilgrims, we will abstain from fleshly lusts and habits which war against the soul, that we will put away from us all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and evil-speaking and be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven us. We further engage to watch over one another in brotherly love, to remember each other in prayer and to aid each other in sickness and distress. We moreover engage that, should we remove from this place, we will, soon as possible, unite with another church where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God's Word.


To generate a great commitment to the great commandment and the great commission.


To raise up fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.
