Welcome to Eliot Chapel's Sunday service!

"Connectivity" – Rev. Daniel Gould 

How do we stay connected in a world that's seemingly falling apart? Rev. Daniel Gould will share tools for how to stay connected. 


For more than 18 years, guest speaker Rev. Gould has brought leadership and problem-solving skills to communities in Houston, St. Louis, Los Angeles, Birmingham, Bessemer, and Marengo County, Alabama, and in Accra, Ghana and Freetown, Sierra Leone. Rev. Gould is a youth minister and community organizer with Missouri Faith Voices and is the founder of Gaia Green Earth a multi-disciplinary firm that specializes in eco-inclusive environments.

Upcoming Services

At 10:00 am on Sundays, we will have a video here on the homepage of our website and it will be available anytime after that. The video will also be available on the Eliot Chapel Facebook page which will allow you to comment and interact. We welcome your participation!



We have decided to close the office August 1-16, so our staff can have some badly-needed time off. The business of the church will continue though some things may be altered or delayed.


On Sunday, August 9, join Rev. Barbara in attending worship at Foothills Unitarian Church in Fort Collins, Colorado. Their services are amazing, and they love hosting other churches. They meet at 10:00 Central Time, so we can scoot back over to Eliot for Zoom Coffee Hour at 11:30! You can access their worship service here or on Eliot Chapel's Facebook page.


Sunday, August 16, Rev. Krista will lead worship live via Zoom. Watch your email for the link. And of course, there will be coffee hour at 11:30!
