In 1913, Anna Maria Island land developer, Charles Roser, funded the construction of a chapel in honor and memory of his parents, John and Caroline Roser. Mr. Roser was a successful businessman and philanthropist, whose generosity is a lasting benefit to coastal Florida. Over a century after it first began, the Chapel still stands, welcoming all who will enter for a time of peace, and closer contact with the ever living, ever loving God of all the ages and of each new day. In the stillness of the Chapel, one can sometimes sense the continuing presence of the small group of early Anna Maria Island pioneers who came together to worship and to study the words and ways of the Christian faith. Everyone is invited to stop by and ask about what Fig Newtons have to do with this beautiful Chapel and meet Roser Pastor—Dr. Bob O’Keef.
Roser’s pastor, and author, Rev. Dr. Bob O’Keef, will be signing his book, “Through the Crystal Snow”, outside the Chapel.
ABOUT THE BOOK: What’s the best way to defeat an enemy? Is love more powerful than hate? In the fall of 1806, Robert Tyler, a successful North Carolina planter, businessman, and politician, learns that he is both the father of an adult son he has never met and that he is the target of an assassination plot. Tyler knows that his opponents not only want to destroy him but also to destroy Lynnmont, his estate, and the Tyler Companies. In an attempt to save everything for his son, he makes the difficult decision to die for his son rather than live for himself. You will fall in love with the characters in Through the Crystal Snow. The mystery will intrigue. The romance will inspire. The ending will surprise. It is a brilliant book—a priceless gift! The cost is $20.
All children are invited to explore the Children’s Tent and enjoy FREE crafts, games, and snacks!
