Sell Chapel

Welcoming All

The Congregation of Sell Chapel is a non-denominational church located at the Masonic Village at Elizabethtown. Residents of Masonic Village and the greater community may worship with us.

You’re Invited to Join Us

Our congregation is active on campus and throughout Elizabethtown serving those in need. 

The beauty and grandeur of the chapel is surpassed only by the comfort and spiritual well-being that is perpetuated through the various spiritual services offered.

Wishing to provide an appropriate place of worship at the Masonic Village, and at the same time honor the memory of her late husband, Mrs. Kate E. Sell, widow of John S. Sell, donated the funds for the chapel. Her vision became reality with the service of dedication on June 30, 1927. The first worship service conducted in the new chapel took place on Sunday, July 3, 1927.

Through the years, though regular religious services were conducted in the chapel, a formal congregation was not established until Jan. 11, 2004, when the first members of the Congregation of Sell Chapel were received.


Every Sunday

Your gifts – from the dollars in the offering plates to the checks in the mail – make it possible for Sell Chapel to respond to needs on the Masonic Village campus, in our surrounding community and throughout the world. We appreciate your interest in aiding us in our mission to reach out to those in need.
