Our home based Life Groups will break this week until after the Christmas holidays. We will resume meetings the week of January 7, 2018. Please take time to be close to your family and find some time to spend with your Life Group family, too.

Christian Chapel Membership
If you have been a regular at Christian Chapel we are grateful for your fellowship and ministry participation. Being regular, we encourage you to apply for official membership with this local body. The standard of membership is actually pretty simple:
1. Show evidence of being saved by trusting in Jesus Christ (John 1:12)
2. Show evidence of a consistent Christian life by practicing Christian disciplines and avoiding obvious sin as a lifestyle.
3. Fully agree with the tenets of faith in our By-laws (the 16 Fundamental Beliefs of the Assemblies of God).
4. Be willing to regularly support the church financially according to your ability.
To become a member simply fill out an application and hand it to pastor Tom, Doug, Cheryl, or one of the deacons or staff members. Thanks again for you commitment to this local church and Making Jesus Known.

Sunday Morning Growth Groups
Small groups designed to learn Bible truth and application in a
setting that is non-threatening, friendly, and suited to every taste.
We currently have three adult and one teen group enjoying the
following studies:
Young Ambassadors (Chldren’s Wing sanctuary) – ages 3-11
Teens: Radiant Life Curriculum
Adult Men: Stepping Up by Dennis Rainey
Adult Women: Full Armor of God, by Priscilla Schirer. This study began on January 22, so you can still get in on the ground floor.
Adult Mixed: Ravi Zacharias’ new book Jesus Among Secular Gods.
Newcomers: This four week group acquaints anyone new to Christian Chapel with our mission, purpose, and vision for Making Jesus Known in our community. The group is held in four-week sessions throughout the year. Contact Peter or Sommer Graves at 757-427-9371 to find out when the next session begins.

Missions Faith Promise
We are still receiving missions Faith Promises for 2018. Christian Chapel has supported over 30 U.S. and foreign missionaries for over 15 years solely through the Faith Promise donations of the congregation. Each year in October we give the congregation the opportunity to make a Faith Promise to missions for the coming year. When you give directly to missions, you are connected directly to the work the Holy Spirit is doing through missionaries around the world. You support the spread of the Gospel! Pick up a Faith Promise card and give it to Pastor Tom or Pastor Mike.

Faith Promise Presentation
If you are wondering what a Faith Promise is all about, you can find a short presentation (about 8 minutes) on the Christian Chapel Assembly of God Facebook page. While you are there, would you “like” our page?

RISE Student Ministries – Christian Chapel Youth
RISE, a group for teens, ages 12 to 18 meets every Friday from 7 pm to 9 pm., to teach our teens to live for Christ in their current context and prepare them to live as Christian adults when that day comes.

Zumba Breaks
Zumba is continuing on Tuesdays, 6-7 p.m. We will be taking a break on Tuesday, November 28, and again on December 19, and 26. Every other Tuesday we will be here moving it for the Lord. This is open to every lady at every fitness level. You’ll love it! For more information you can call Jean Crabb at 757-427-9371 or email

Sermon Based Life Groups
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be able to study out what you hear on Sunday morning or to discuss it with a few close friends from church? What might that do for you in terms of helping you live out and apply the teaching from the Bible? Have you ever wanted to know that you had a few people in the church you were really close to and could count on? Sermon-based Life Groups are the answer! We currently have eight groups that meet in homes throughout the community. We will form more groups as leaders are trained and available. If you are interested in connecting with a Life Group call the office at 757-427-9371 or email Pastor Cheryl Pickford at
