The West Vienna Free Community Church Association was formed in 1879, built by the Quakers as a meeting place for religion, education and science. The building was turned over by the Baptist Church after being unoccupied for  two years. Through community vision and the call of the Holy Spirit the Jewell Chapel is alive!

The Jewell Chapel is located on the north shore of Oneida Lake, in the county of Oneida, NY. Once named West Vienna this small community was renamed Jewell after a prominent family, the Jewell's. It is home to hard workers as well as seasonal camp owners.  With great fishing in Oneida Lake, sailing, hunting, and winter activities it really  is a place that offers opportunities all year round.

The Chapel has had many different uses in the past including a library, temporary school house, Methodist Church, Independent Church, Baptist Church, and a general meeting place for the community. Now rededicated to the advancement of the Great Commission, our evangelical church's goal is to develop programs that engage and build relationship within the community and with God.

In God’s sight, We can’t go wrong, if we base our day to day decisions on His Words.   As a church it is better that we stand together. We can try to live this life in our own powers and abilities but God has a better plan.  His plan is that we join together in a bond of Love.  
 Romans 12:-5
Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.

The community is excited to have a “free and independent” church again.  As much as we say the Jewell Chapel is an independent Church, we are anything But independent… We are part of the Church which God has ordained … the Universal Church of Jesus Christ!
