Christian Chapel Assembly of God Calendar of Events

Spring All Church Workday
Saturday, March 30, 9 am to noon.  The drywall in the Children’s Wing has been installed and we plan to paint as much of it as we can on this workday.  We can use all the help we can get.  The Men’s Ministry will be fixing breakfast for anyone who wants to eat first.  We will be signing up helpers for the next two Sundays.  Please set aside that morning to come and help get the Children’s Wing back in operation.

Rise Student Ministry Taco Dinner
Sunday, March 31, immediately after worship, the Student Ministry is preparing a Sunday taco feast.  Every is invited to stay and share in the fellowship and good food.  The Student Ministry is raising funds for youth camp this summer.  The dinner is free but donations will be accepted.  Please plan to help our teens get to camp again this year.  It makes such a difference to their spiritual formation.

Sunday Morning Schedule
Study Groups (adults/teens) at 9 AM
Young Ambassadors (children 3-11) at 9 AM
Worship at 10:30 AM
Nursery for children age 2 and under
Children’s Ministry for children age 3 through 6th grade. Children will be dismissed after singing to a service tailored to their age groups.

North Landing Elementary School Family Fun Day
Saturday, April 6, 12-3 p.m.  Christian Chapel will be providing volunteers to help with games and events.  This is a great opportunity to show our adopted school how  much we love them and care for them.  We will have sign up sheets available the next three Sundays.  Please sign up to help.

Resurrection Celebration
Sunday, April 21, 10:30 a.m.  Join us as we celebrate the foundational event of Christianity: Jesus’ resurrection from the dead.  This is a great time to invite those who don’t usually attend a church.  Bring as many as you can with you.  Let’s have a booming celebration.  What’s better than life after death to celebrate?

Easter Eggstravaganza
On Easter Sunday, April 21, at 9:30 a.m. all the children will be treated to our annual Easter Eggstravaganza (Easter Egg Hunt).  Please invite all our friends and family members.  Every child will receive a generous bag of sweets and many prizes will be hidden in the eggs.

Easter Eggstravaganza Candy Donation
If you are able, would you consider purchasing a bag or two (or more) of individually wrapped Easter candy for the Easter Eggstravaganza?  I’m sure the children will be thankful for whatever you can donate.  Plan to get it to Christian Chapel by Monday, April 15, so we can get the goody bags set up.

Children’s Ministry Relocation
Due to severe roof leakage, we will be holding all Children’s Ministry classes in classrooms upstairs until repairs can be completed.  The Young Ambassadors will meet in Room F, the Potter’s Clay will be in the Youth Room, and the Little Lambs will be in Room A.  The Nursery will be moved to the cry room behind the Worship Center.  Thank you for your consideration during this inconvenience.

Life Groups In Session
Life Groups are back in full swing for the winter and spring.  If you are not part of a Life Group, check with Pastor Tom or any Life Group leader shown on the back wall of the Worship Center.  We encourage everyone to connect with a Life Group.  We grow best when we share life on life together.

Ladies Zumba meets every Tuesday at 6 p.m..  Our Zumba classes are lead by two certified instructors and are free and 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

Christian Chapel Membership

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
Sundays: 9-10 a.m.  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 groups for everyone: age 3-11, Teens, Adult Men, Adult Women, and Adult Mixed.  These groups help individuals grow in bible knowledge and application so that we can better Make Jesus Known in our everyday life situations.

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.
