Message from the President-Elect:

I am honored by the appointment to serve as the Bell Street Chapel board President, effective July 1, for the next two years. As a member of our community, I see the opportunity to connect not only with one another to do great things, but to also expand our reach into the overall community in many ways.

Bell Street Chapel holds a special place in my heart. In the summer of 2018, I moved to Rhode Island from the Pacific Northwest, sight unseen. When I arrived, I had to build a new community for myself and Bell Street was a big part of that. Discovering our church was by happenstance and a true blessing. On my first visit, I experienced a warm welcome and was thrilled to know I found a welcoming community for my spiritual and civic activities. Since that initial start, I have been helping with hospitality by hosting potlucks and coordinating our month coffees with Ellen Kellner on the first Sunday of each month.

I thank Joanne DeVoe for her service as our President and I look forward to serving all of you!

Dennise M. Kowalczyk
