UPDATED JAN 15
Dear Chapel Family,
Over the next three years, we as The Chapel want to focus on our roots. We want to make sure our roots are growing deeper and deeper in the fertile soil of God's Truth, in order to become as healthy as possible.
Join us this weekend as we go deeper into the 6 spiritual roots that we want all of us to focus on as part of our Vision 2023.
What's New this Week?
1. Vision 2023 - Root #2 Become like Jesus
After an incredible launch into our Vision 2023 series this past weekend, we are excited to share with you about our 2nd Vision Root - Become like Jesus!
In-person service times are:
5pm Saturday (SAN only)
9am, 10:15am & 11:30am Sunday (all campuses)

3. Growing Deeper - Memory Verse
During our current series, we want to encourage each of you to join us in memorizing Colossians 2:6-7.
"And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him. Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness."
In order to help you memorize - Just CLICK HERE and download the image and make it your lock screen for the next few weeks!
3. Baptism & Child Dedications coming soon...
We are excited to let you know that we are planning to offer baptisms and child dedications again in 2021!
Are you or your family ready to take one of these important steps in your faith?
