Who are we? And what do we do in our church service? We have a long history in Crandon (starting meetings in the 1930’s). It didn’t take very long till a group of believers began meeting above a tailor shop. The church grew and moved to “Woodman Hall” by the late 30’s and by the early 40’s made plans to build a church building. They found out about a building that was being torn down in Crystal Falls, Michigan and they bought it for $650. They brought the materials to Crandon and erected the building in 1945.
Someone would go to the church early on Sunday morning to fire up the little wood stove so the building would be warm for services. The church was incorporated under the name, “Church of God of Crandon.” The church continued to prosper and decided to change the name of the church to “Praise Chapel Church of God” around
1960. In the 70’s the church wanted to be more community oriented and changed the name, once more, to “Praise Chapel Community Church” becoming
an independent church with no denominational affiliation. To this day, we are known as “Praise Chapel” in the community.
Our service is about one hour long and it is, what is called a “blended” service, which means we do enjoy the traditional hymns but we also like to sing the more contemporary songs, too. The pastor preaches from the Bible and encourages everyone to look up the Scriptures for themselves – giving page numbers for the pew Bible so people can find the references easily.
Pastor Bill has been with us for around 28 years now and has been with the church through a building project that started in 2002 and was finished in 2011.
We did not borrow money to build so we do not have a mortgage on the new building. We just recently called an associate pastor to join us and we see
God’s blessings, as we are faithful in His service.
