For those desiring to escape the “hustle and bustle” of the modern world and spend some quality time with their families, if only for a few hours, Fairview Chapel provides just such a destination. Without the need to take a bus trip, or drive a great distance one can celebrate a Christmas as it was around the turn of the Twentieth Century.
Nestled in the rolling countryside of Frederick County, along the west side of Boyers Mill Road, just south of Gas House Pike, the small stone chapel offers individuals and families opportunities to celebrate the holiday season in a simple style and setting similar to the earliest days of this restored 1847 chapel. In recent years, the holiday season would not be complete for many families without attending the worship services held in this quaint little country church.
In its rural setting, one can almost see horses and buggies still traveling the country road and people dressed in clothing from an earlier time period coming to worship the same God that we worship today. People still gather at Fairview to worship the same Christ child and to lift their voices in praise and thanksgiving to the same Heavenly Father who has been worshipped in this same place since it was built in the mid 1800’s.
The aged stones of the walls seem to whisper with the worship services of both past and present days. With a little imagination you can still hear people from years ago singing the same carols of the season that worshippers gather to sing today.
Whether you are a first-time visitor, an occasional visitor or a regular worshipper, a variety of seasonal programs offered to the public every Sunday evening at 7:00 pm at the chapel from the Sunday after Thanksgiving, November 26th, through Epiphany Sunday on January 7th, those in attendance will have the opportunity to celebrate a Christmas as families did during an earlier time period.
Fairview Chapel is located at 6802 Boyers Mill Road, New Market, MD just north of the entrance to Lake Linganore and only minutes from both Frederick and New Market. For more information about these programs call 301-865-3530.
