Civil War Church Service

Ongoing Opportunities

  • June 23 at 1 PM

Attend a Civil War-style, nondenominational church service at Historic Rocky Springs Chapel on Sunday, June 23, 2019, beginning at 1:00 P.M.

The service will be conducted by Chaplain Steve McCarty wearing Civil War period attire (most sermons preached at Historic Rocky Springs Chapel were originally delivered between 1861-1865). Chaplain McCarty is a member of the nonprofit organization Re-enactor's Missions for Jesus Christ. Miss Hannah Boley will play the chapel's antique 1909 upright piano for the service and worshipers will sing hymns that were popular during the American Civil War. Immediately after the service Chaplain McCarty will give a living history presentation which will be followed by an informal Victorian tea, courtesy of the President, Historic Rocky Springs Chapel, Inc. (HRSC) Board of Trustees.

HRSC is dedicated to using living history programs to accurately educate the public on historical Christian practices and the impact of faith on American society during the Civil War. The wearing of Civil War period attire to the church service and living history program is encouraged (but not required). Everyone is welcome to attend!
