The love of knitting and crocheting along with a desire to comfort others launched the prayer shawl ministry. This ministry reaches out to those in need of comfort and solace. Each knitter begins each shawl with prayers for the recipient. When the shawl or lap blanket is completed there is a laying of hands and a blessing bestowed upon it before it is sent along its way. Join us each Monday at 1pm at the Capon Bridge Ruritan Building, across the street from Capon Bridge UMC, Rt 50 and Cold Stream Road. Lots of free parking available. We provide the knitting or crochet hooks and the yarn. Don't know how to knit or crochet? We will teach you. Come join us. and Cold Stream Road.
The Giving Plate ministry is our way of sharing our blessings with those around us. The hand designed plates are filled with tasty goodies and delivered to homes around the area. Our hope is recipients will share the blessing by passing the plate along.

Historically known as Capon Baptist Chapel and Capon Chapel Church, is a mid-19th century United Methodist church located near to the town of Capon Bridge, West Virginia in the United States. Capon Chapel is one of the oldest existing log churches in Hampshire County, WV. A Baptist congregation was gathering at the site of the present-day church by at least 1756. Primitive Baptist minister John Monroe (1750–1824) is credited for establishing a place of worship at this site; he is interred in the church's cemetery. The land on which Capon Chapel was built originally belonged to William C. Nixon (1789–1869), a member of the Virginia House of Delegates; later, it was transferred to the Pugh family. The first documented mention of a church at the Capon Chapel site was in March 1852, when Joseph Pugh allocated the land to three trustees for the construction of a church and cemetery. During the early years of Capon Chapel, no Protestant denomination was the exclusive owner or occupant, and the church was probably utilized as a "union church" for worship by any Christian denomination. Capon Chapel was used as a place of worship by Baptists until the late 19th or early 20th century. In the 1890s, Capon Chapel was added as a place of worship on the Capon Bridge Methodist circuit of the Southern Methodist Episcopal Church.
Capon Chapel, along with its cemetery, was added to the National Register of Historic Places on December 12, 2012, in recognition of its representation of the rural religious architecture of the Potomac Highlands region, and for its service as an important rural church in Hampshire County.
Capon Chapel's cemetery is surrounded by a wrought iron fence made by Stewart Iron Works, and contains the remains of John Monroe, William C. Nixon, West Virginina House of Delegates member Captain David Pugh (1806–1899), Civil War Veterans and members of the community.
