The North Stonington Bible Church is the outgrowth of the New London Christian Servicemen’s Center, Inc.  Our first pastor, James A. Chappell, Jr., his wife, Alberta, and their children left San Diego, California for Connecticut in August 1961.  Their goal was to establish a ministry among the military personnel in the Groton - New London area.
