Rye Puritan Chapel

Rye Puritan Chapel

Please remember that we will not begin this new schedule until Saturday 15 April;
see the Church Calendar.

The Assembly at Rye Chapel meets on the second and fourth Sabbaths to go “full Puritan” with evening-morning-midday services.  Dr. Solín directs the 7:00 p.m. Saturday evening service to begin our Sabbath worship; Mr. Rechcigl directs the Sunday services.  Dinner is offered after the Saturday evening service and lunch after the Sunday midday.  Please refer to the Church Calendar for details about the services and Contact Us for information, directions, etc.

Sermons at Rye Chapel are delivered in the Puritan tradition and, weather permitting, with our Saturday evening service often delivered as a “Sermon Under the Stars”; they are typically given in a series of three (John Calvin preached 159 sermons on the Book of Job) and are heavily footnoted in the hardcopy posted on this website.  They are most often given to instruct and give application to the Word of God; often foreboding, they are above all meant to effect a change in outward behavior by bringing the sinner to conviction and repentance.


Please visit our Sermon Calendar for links to the full list of sermons anticipated to be delivered by Dr. Solín at Rye Chapel through the end of this year—beginning with the series in which he addressed the great controversy that nearly destroyed our Assembly, followed by sermons related to his call to our pulpit and to the reorganization of the chapel, sermons addressing “days of civil religion” and times of trial, and concluding with the Christmas service.  Publication copies of “Ten Sabbaths in the Puritan Pulpit,” the collection of these 30 sermons, will be provided without cost to all members of our Assembly.

Once posted, the sermon title will be highlighted and link to downloadable audio and pdf print files (with footnotes and supplementary material); this sermon will be moved to the archive section when the next sermon is posted.

Any delay in posting will be due to our agreement with the book publisher who requires Dr. Solín’s lessons to be recorded, edited, and publicly available in both book and audio copy (Amazon, etc.) before they may be posted online with free download.

Following this introductory series, the Elders of Rye Chapel have asked Dr. Solín to preach “lectio continua”(verse by verse) through the first eleven chapters of “The Book of Beginnings.”
