The Yosemite Chapel was originally built in 1879 and is one of the oldest buildings in Yosemite Valley and the oldest public building still in use.
It is operated today as the Yosemite Community Church and everyone is welcome to attend non-denominational services every Sunday at 9:15 am. During the summer there is a second service at 11:00 Sunday morning. At 7 pm on Thursdays there is a midweek fellowship time for prayer and Bible study.
The Yosemite Chapel is a favorite spot for non-denominational Yosemite weddings, baptisms and marriage vow renewals. Call the church office at (209) 372-4831 for specific information about other Yosemite wedding services available at the Yosemite Chapel or check this web site for more Yosemite wedding options: yosemitewedding.org.[sam id=1 codes=’false’]
The charming little New England style building was built under the sponsorship of the California State Sunday School Association. Originally placed at the start of the 4-mile trail to Glacier Point it was moved to the present location on Yosemite Loop Road (shuttle stop 11) in 1901.
