"7 102 - CAPE GAZETTE - Friday, November 17 - Monday, November 20, 2006 Heritage Sunday slated Nov. 19 at St. George's Chapel The Episcopal Parish of All Saints' Church and St. George's Chapel will celebrate Heritage Sunday at 9:30 a.m., Sunday, Nov. 19, at their historic chapel located" on Beaver Dam Road in Harbeson, six miles south of Five Points on Route 23. Services at .St. George's date back to 1719 at this location. "We will be celebrating 287 years of worship and ministry here," said the Rev. Max Wolf, parish rector• "We will use our 1716 edition of the 1662 Church of England Dinner Continued from page 101 The idea for a community Thanksgiving dinner was born five years ago when church expansion plans were announced. Kennedy says he and fellow, church member Michael Robinson felt the new state-of- the-art kitchen and large commu- nity hail should be a vital part of the outreach ministry of the church. "Michael had experience as a professional chef and I have some cooking experience, so we decid- ed that the new facility should be utilized for the community," Kennedy says. "The hospitality committee got behind us and we were off." Soup ministry growing Once-the first dinner was prayer book in the service. Many worship- pers will come dressed in colonial attire. "The service. is reminiscent of colonial times when the WOLF members of the congregation were primarily farmers and merchants. "We always have a sense at St. George's Chapel that we stand on I need of fellowship and compan- ionship. Bible study groups plan their meetings around the soup sched- ule, as do seniors, a local artists guild, and even local members of the Lewes Class of 1945. "It gives people a chance to sit around and chat," Kennedy says. Donations are accepted for lunch• Other donations from churches, organizations and indi- viduals help to support the soup ministry program. Coat ministry begins "Sorry," another volunteer says as she shoves a cookbook in Kennedy's face. "How much sugar do you put in for this recipe?" She was making a large hatch of oatmeal raisin cookies and the recipe didn't cover the total she was baking. He has the answer right away• the shoulders of generations who have gone before us, a continuity of that communion of saints." The chapel was originally built for the convenience of the country families who could not easily travel into town, the nearest town being Lewes, for services. It was simpler for the minister to come out to the chapel than for the country families to make it into the town. The location on a branch of Herring Creek allowed many of the families to arrive by boat. The Thanksgiving season is also the kick-off for the annual coat ministry at the church. Individuals or families in need of winter coats can pick coats up at the dinner on Sunday. Although the church receives donations of coats, there are never enough children's coats, Kennedy says. The donation of $750 will be • used to purchase children's coats. Last year a church member used Various discounts at Vanity Fair at the Tanger Outlets in Rehoboth and was able to get coats 85 per- cent to 90 percent off, Kennedy says. A local Brownie troop made a donation of coats as well, he says. Right up to turkey time on Sunday, Kennedy and his crew will be cooking and preparing for a meal in a true mission of com- passion that transcends denomina- tions and ideologies. The original St. George's Chapel was completed in 1719, and was destroyed by fire in 1792. The present chapel was completed in 1794 on the same spot. The new church is made of brick, which is unusual for this period, and the brick was fired on location. It is still referred to as The Brick Chapel by locals. The style of the interior of the building is of the early Federai period. The hour-glass pulpit is in its original position, described as being as high as the gallery; it is of the single liturgical center plan, with pulpit and altar together, which was an experimental design of the 1700s. The oldest marked grave in the churchyard is dated 1732 and many local heroes and historical figures are buried there. St. George's Chapel is a treas- .ure that has been lovingly main- tained and restored as needed over the years. In the 1960s, planning and research began for a complete and authentic restoration• The archi- tect for the project was Allen Wood Fraser, A.I.A. and the con- tractor was Samuel C. Russell of Lewes, with All Saints' Church's Father Richard Bailey overseeing all work. The service on Heritage Sunday will include music appropriate to the period, dress and wigs of the colonial times will also be in evi- dence as the congregation pays tribute to its long and colorful his- tory.

He is quick to point out the program is not a traditional soup kitchen - although it resembles one. "Excuse me," a volunteer inter- rupts the interview. "I can't get the coffee pot to work." Anl time was nearing for Tuesday's soup ministry to begin. Kennedy gets up and within 15 seconds has the pot brewing hot coffee• He and his team of volunteers, which comprises members of var- ious churches and community organizations and even some teenagers with physical and men- tai challenges, cook 50 gallons of soup each week. On Tuesdays, the soup, along with a salad, bread and dessert, is served at Lewes Presbyterian from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., on Wednesday soup is on at Conley's United Methodist, and on Thursday, soup is served at Midway Assembly of God. St. Matthews by the Sea in Fenwick Island buys soup and freezes it for later use. Kennedy says there are always three soups t3 choose from - tomato is the favorite. "Each church starts with our soup and adds things to it," he says. "It's fascinating the way this program has grown and I don't see much of a limit to it."
