Princess Chapel's new facility

July 1, 2009 — Ivory Gullett has attended Princess Chapel before her feet could touch the floor while seated in a pew, and now a new addition to the church grounds will be dedicated to the devoted congregation member.

Pastor Clell Lucas is pleased to announce the opening of the Princess Chapel New Life Center and the first songfest Friday night on the same property where the big flag hangs along U.S. 60 in Meads.

With KYOVA Singing each week, Lucas said 71 groups would be scheduled, with seven to perform this weekend.

“They have groups from Nashville and all over that sing Bluegrass Gospel and Gospel,” he said during a tour Tuesday of the new facility. “We can seat up to 400 and will even be renting the building out for weddings, receptions and company dinners. KYOVA has dedicated $200 each week to us and that will be a great help.”

The Princess Chapel and its congregation made the $150,000 center possible, Lucas said.

Just weeks after the 26 acres of property was paid for, Lucas said the work began on the New Life Center.

The project began May 1, as volunteers and contractors worked feverishly to get ready for Friday’s opening.

“Rod Gamble has been the general contractor and Gene Benett has worked as the superintendent on the job,” Lucas commented. “We even put three master carpenters to work who were laid off and on unemployment. They help us and we help them. This has been a blessing for everyone as so many volunteers have dedicated their time. God has been good to us and everything is coming together just fine.”

Beginning Friday at 7 p.m., Gullett will be presented a plaque, as she looks forward to her 97th birthday July 18.

“Her husband was pastor here for 29 years and Ivory has continued to be a part of this church ever since,” Lucas added. “We are blessed to have her as a member of our congregation and blessed to have each and every person.”

KYOVA Singing is set for every Friday beginning at 6 p.m. with food and refreshment and performers hitting the stage at 7 p.m.
