A brief history of our beginnings:
White Lily Chapel was founded by the Rev. Margaret Fling, Pastor, and the Rev. Richard Heimlich, Assistant Pastor. Through the developed trance mediumship of Rev. Margaret Fling, a class was started in Rev. Fling's home in approximately 1949.  This class was taught by White Lily, a spirit teacher, through direct voice. Soon Rev. Fling's home became too small for the attendance.  The township hall in Ashley was rented for two nights a week for services. We began to provide pot luck dinners on Sundays and charged 75 cents for adults and 50 cents for children to defray our rent expense.

On December 2, 1952, The White Lily Chapel was chartered with the National Spiritualist Association (NSA).  In 1953 we purchased a building in Ashley that had been a factory at the time.  Originally, it was "the Old Opera House". It was
remodeled into our church with dining room and kitchen, where we started providing Wednesday dinners for the public at $1.00 for adults and 50 cents for children.

Soon we outgrew that dining room so we built a large room onto it.  We used this room, in the beginning, as a recreation room for the community to use.  We held square dances every Saturday, euchre parties on Monday and basketball and skating activities other times. Eventually we needed more room for the dinners, so we changed the recreation hall into two dining rooms with another kitchen.

Later we left the NSA and established a charter with the State of Ohio on May 1, 1963.

Our church burned on March 17, 1980.  Through the teachings and direction of White Lily and our spirit guides, we rebuilt our church on the same property and opened March 1981 to continue to serve God.

Ordained Ministers and Working Mediums:
White Lily Chapel has 4 ordained ministers and 7 working mediums.  They participate in the Sunday and Wednesday services by delivering lectures, conducting healing meditations, laying on of hands and spirit messages. Private readings are available upon request.
