Built for Belonging

God created us for relationships, so it’s no wonder that community can be one of the most rewarding experiences in the life of a believer. We invite you to be a part of small group community through Adult Bible Fellowships, Home Groups and our specific ministry groups. Though each looks different, they are all built on friendship, prayer, accountability, care and love through Jesus Christ.

The Breaking

Once a month, we gather at a host home from 5pm-9pm with no set agenda outside of sharing a meal, playing games and enjoying our community.


In our Women’s Ministry, women of all ages and walks of life find encouraging friendships and opportunities to discover the greatness of God. By growing together and inviting each other into the daily walk of becoming disciples of Jesus, we hope God’s greatness and glory become known in your hearts, minds and lives. There is a place here for you.

Caring Communities for Widows

The loss of a spouse can bring about changes in how we interact with our community. The Chapel’s Widows Ministry is designed to provide care, comfort and community to those who have lost their spouses. We offer coffee, fellowship and listening friends in Christ-centered, prayer-focused small groups. We meet at multiple coffee shops throughout the city.

Contact our Care Department with questions or for more information.

Senior Adults

Following Jesus and becoming more like Him is a lifelong journey. In our Senior Adults Ministry, we desire to partner with you in discipleship in the second half of life. Through groups, activities and events, we fellowship, study, pray and consider each other in love — for the glory of God.

To request more information, contact Bob Schneider.
