Groups and Events

At the heart of our mission is the word community. On Sunday mornings, the larger community gathers for worship. But enriching experience of community takes place through the inspiration of special events and in authentic smaller groups. It is here that we connect life-to- life as we share our stories, care for one another, laugh and cry as we support and pray for each other. As we study, we see more clearly how God’s Word speaks to every area of our lives. The outcome is that God’s Spirit brings about growth in love for Christ, for one another, and for our world.

    Men’s Study

    A men’s study takes place each Thursday morning during the season (November through May). The group meets at 8:00 AM in the Fellowship Hall. This gathering is a time set aside for men to discuss life’s issues from a Godly perspective. Peter Raffalski, a local banker, leads us in an engaging study of a book chosen with the above goal in mind. It’s a place where faith and friendship come together over coffee and conversation.

    Women’s Study

    Chapel Women Connect (CWC) offers an opportunity for women to gather for a weekly Bible study during the season (November through May). The format is based around small group participation and learning in a welcoming environment. Each small group is led by a trained facilitator. Your participation will allow you to grow in your understanding of Scripture and explore the questions of how it relates to your life today. The study meets on Wednesdays at 10:30 AM in the Fellowship Hall. CWC also hosts special events during the season.

    Journey Together

    Sunday mornings during the season (November through May) at 10:30 AM in the Sanctuary, our Chaplain, Bob Henley, leads a study called Journey Together. This is taking us through an overview of the entire Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. Our resource is Meet the Bible by noted Christian author, Philip Yancey. Each week covers a small portion of God’s story revealed in Scripture. The study takes place in a conversational environment where questions are welcomed as we explore both the context and content of these events that have given shape to our faith.

    Community Potluck

    A potluck is an event where everyone who attends contributes something to eat or drink. Our community potlucks take place on Tuesday evenings during the season (November through May) from 6:00 to 7:30 PM in the Fellowship Hall. One person describes the experience as being close to a first century house church experience. We share the joys and concerns of life together over a meal, and pray for each other. Then, we watch an episode from The Chosen series, and talk together about its significance and impact on our lives.
