Small Groups
Have you been searching for a way to get connected at The Chapel? Are you looking to grow your relationship with Christ and other Christians? Then you need to be in a Chapel Small Group! Chapel Small Groups can meet at any time, and while we do have a few mid-week groups, most meet on Sunday afternoons or evenings. The average group meets for two hours and consists of 10 to 12 people. A typical Small Group meeting includes Bible study, prayer, fellowship and food!  Click here to learn more and sign up.
 
Standing For Christ
Standing Up for Christ in Our World (New Sermon Series)

We are stepping into a new sermon series, studying the Apostle Peter’s first letter.  His audience—believers who have been living in Asia Minor or present day Turkey. These believers are undergoing great suffering and persecution for the name of Jesus.  In this wonderful letter, Peter encourages and reminds them of what is theirs in Christ.  He tells them about the value of suffering, why they are suffering for their faith. So how will we live?  Peter calls us to stand up for Christ in our world, not to be afraid but willing to follow our Lord no matter the cost.

Children's Ministry

His Kids - Chapel Sunday School
What Kids Are Learning This Week

This week in Big House, elementary kids in both hours are learning about how Jesus is worthy of our praise. In Revelation 4, John is on the island of Patmos and has a vision where Jesus shows him what will happen before the end of time: The Lord is on His throne.  After His death and resurrection, Jesus ascended to heaven and sat down at the right hand of God. He is worthy of and deserves all praise, honor, and glory.
 
Prayer Request:
 Pray for the kids to know that Jesus was killed on the cross so that we could have forgiveness and eternal life, and that we look forward to the day we will join with all the saints in worshiping Jesus forever.

Come Play

Mondays and/or Thursdays, 9:00 a.m.–2:00 p.m.
