Dedicated to the service of God, our goal is to inspire a closer walk with Jesus through the holiness of our dwelling, our services, and our lives.
Chapel in the Woods has been actively involved in seeking the Lord's wisdom for real-world application. From following His guidance over our daily lives, to being ready to help our friends and neighbors, our church body is being equipped to do His Good Work. Our ongoing outreach has taken on new life this year, and we’re really excited to share God and His inspirations with you.

Located in the beautiful Piney Woods of East Texas, between Winnsboro and Gilmer, Chapel in the Woods offers congregants a place of comfort, hope, and peace whereby they may seek the Lord. We are dedicated to spreading the teachings of Jesus Christ, and our goal is to inspire you toward God through the holiness of our dwelling and our services. We invite you to become a part of our growing congregation and look forward to meeting you!
The original Chapel was built in 2000, by Pastor George Metzel. It is located on the property and is currently used as a prayer Chapel. George Metzel had the original vision for the Chapel to be a place to study God's Word, pray and build up the body of Christ for works of service.
"From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work." (Ephesians 4:16)
In 2007 Alan Metzel accepted the call to pastor at Chapel in the Woods Christian Fellowship. Due to the growing needs of the congregation the Chapel service is now held in the Lodge. The Lodge serves as a place to meet for Sunday service, luncheons, and various ministry needs. We meet every Sunday morning at 10:30 am.
