The Chappell/Lodgepole Ministerial Association is very active in both communities. They provide a food bank to assist our neighbors in need, relying on generous donations from the community and grants. The group meets monthly and welcomes every church from every denomination to join in their mission work. The ministerial also assists travelers who might need a helping hand. In recent years, they have helped stranded motorists with food and lodging, as well as helping out with other community projects.
