We believe in having a relationship with Christ, and we offer evening chapel services to our guests who are interested. Services are at 6:30 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. Evening chapel is provided by a variety of Puget Sound churches and mission organizations.  Attending services are never mandatory for our guests, but are always available to those that find comfort in attending them.
