We began in the 1800's as two families and their neighbors, gathering together in their homes for a Methodist Class. These families, the Harper's and the Ezard's, along with their neighbors, enjoyed many blessings and many hardships over the years.
As their families grew together, they longed for a church of their own. With the support of the community, in 1911 they were able to build the original Chapel and make their dream a reality.
Harper Chapel has continued to grow over the years, adding to it's building, as well as to the ministries offered to our local community, and will continue to do so in the future.
"Intentionally connecting people with Jesus Christ and each other through ministries that are: relational, invitational, transformational and missional."
"Making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world."
Harper Chapel United Methodist Church is a welcoming family at all stages and places of spiritual growth in
response to Christ’s call for tolerance and for helping others in daily life.
We are located in Osage Beach, Missouri in the heart of the
Lake of the Ozarks community. We look forward to meeting you!
Harper Chapel is full of wonderful people who help to make everything
run as smoothly as possible. From the Pastor to the Teachers in our Shining Stars Preschool and Afterschool programs, even the custodians; everyone who works
here is part of a team who knows the true essence of teamwork!
