Steps to the upper room.

The Upper Room

It's been years since I visited this place. The last time I visited, it was out in the woods. Now it sits on a busy street that crosses a new bridge over a stream that runs right behind the building. I must say at night it does have a real Jerusalem/Middle East feel about it. It is a beautiful and peaceful place.

The Upper Room is a re-creation of the building where, according to the Bible, Jesus hosted The Last Supper.

Upper Room chapel.

Upper Room Chapel

The Upper Room, once the centerpiece of the former Heritage USA complex, has been reopened. Now known as Upper Room Chapel, the building is a replica of the original Upper Room in Jerusalem, Israel. Painstakingly built to specification, it is about as close to the real thing as one could imagine. It is a beautiful place of prayer, where anyone is welcome to come and stop and pray or walk the grounds and meditate along the Walk of Faith, a winding sidewalk though this tranquil wooded spot with inlaid scripture on granite markers.

Pray inside on Saturdays and Sundays, or attend a Sunday night service at 6:30 pm.

The Upper Room - Heritage USA

The ministry heart of the old PTL Club and Heritage USA was the Upper Room. It reopened December 2010 and is now called Upper Room Chapel. It is beautiful.
