Davis Chapel congregants will also celebrate the steadfastness demonstrated by the congregation, despite losing their church at 369 Chesley Ave. to a fire on Thanksgiving Day 2003. Since that time, the congregation has remained faithful to the divine mandate to minister to the Richmond Community while worshipping at St. Peter CME Church in El Cerrito. The congregation also announces that work on new church is 73 percent completed and wishes to thank all those who have demonstrated support to the Davis Chapel family through the years.
