After years of planning, raising donations, and building, we have finally opened the doors of our new chapel. Summer 2017 was an exciting summer, as we ran almost all of our summer programs out of our new chapel. Fall and winter 2017 allowed us the honour of hosting 2 weddings! Although we still need to purchase our own boiler to allow for the facility to be heated throughout the year, with the help of our 2-sided fire place and a rented heater, the chapel was toasty for our off-season weddings.
What is included in our new chapel?
- A large foyer with access to both men’s and woman’s washrooms
- Curl up on a comfy couch in front on our double-sided fireplace in the foyer
- The other side of our fireplace looks in on our sanctuary with huge vaulted ceilings and enormous windows lining each side of the sanctuary.
- The sanctuary is equipped with dark wooden pews, and there is a black backdrop for our stage.
Here is the exciting news…
This building is 95% complete and was built on donations alone. So what is left to do?
- Purchase and install a boiler system for heating,
- Purchase our own sound system so we don’t need to rent,
- And, build a permanent stage.
Please prayerfully consider jumping on this opportunity to pour into the ministry of Moose Lake Gospel Camp by helping us complete the new chapel which will be used as a combine for bringing in the Lord’s harvest for generations to come.

Building the New Chapel
During our summer programs, we minister to over 650 people, where our goal was to pour into their lives, and encourage them to spiritual maturity through Bible studies, worship, and basically – to have an all-around good time! Our desire is to be a place where people -no matter their background- can be encouraged physically, emotionally, and spiritually and we desire to equip people for a significant ministry by helping them discover the gifts and talents God has given them and fan those gifts into flame. Ultimately we are a group of people who want to live in the fullness of God and share that fullness with everyone. And so it is no wonder that when we request assistance in our projects, people are eager to help and contribute in any way they can.
For 2 years in a row we have had a matching grant campaign, where a family agreed to match dollar for dollar up to $35,000.00 to raise funds towards the new Chapel. People jumped on the opportunity to bless the camp, and in all we were able to raise $70,000, meaning we raised $140,000 with the match! This fundraiser allowed us to complete much of the finishing that was left to do in the chapel.
