Big House starts in June and is an opportunity for us to give our regular Sunday school teachers the summer off. Please consider helping. All materials are provided. We are looking for volunteers to help once per month...that's just three Sundays this summer. Learn more and sign up.
Sundays, July 22–November 25
Beginning on July 22, we step 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. Click here to read more.
Sundays, June 3–September 2, 9:00 & 10:35 a.m.
Join us as we explore how to approach difficult topics from a Christian perspective. You’ll be informed, equipped, and challenged to address these areas Biblically, theologically, and practically. Each ABF will begin in their respective rooms, then combine for the teaching time. No need to sign up. All adults are welcome, so please join us! Check the schedule and find topic descriptions here.
If you would like to publicly declare your faith in Christ and be baptized as a believer this August, sign up for one of our instruction class dates. Classes will be held on July 31 at 7:00 p.m. and August 9 at 7:00 p.m. For questions, call the church office at 269-429-1041. Register for a class here. Baptism will be held on Sunday, August 19 at 2:00 p.m. at Jean Klock.
Mission Minded Sunday gives us all an opportunity to learn about new and existing ministries within The Chapel, our community, and our world. ABFs will be participating together on this Sunday in order to give everyone an opportunity to learn about these ministries. All adults are encouraged to come during the hour opposite of their usual worship time. Learn More.
Saturday, July 28, 10:00–11:00 a.m.
Connect and Share is an opportunity to share and encourage each other through the journey of grief. Coffee and snacks will be available. This is an unstructured time to share our hearts and concerns with one another. No need to sign up, but please come and join us!
This week in Big House, elementary kids in both hours are learning about the letter Paul wrote to Philemon while he was still a prisoner in Rome. Paul met Onesimus, a servant who had run away from his owner, Philemon, and told him the good news about Jesus. Paul offered to pay Onesimus’s debt to make peace between him and Philemon. In this way, Paul acted like Jesus, who makes peace between God and man.
Prayer Request: Pray that the kids will trust in Jesus as their Savior and learn to do the right thing in every circumstance.
