About Us Banner 2.jpg


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. The photos below show a glimpse of the

beautiful area we are blessed to live in. We look forward to meeting you!


Harper Chapel is full of wonderful people who help to make everything

run as smoothly as possible. Everyone who works

here is part of a team who knows the true essence of teamwork!
