Local Missions

Local Missions

An important component of the disciple-making process is looking beyond our own walls to the spiritual and physical needs in our community. Through programs of our own, as well as strategic partnerships with various ministries and organizations in our community, the Chapel’s local mission programs seek to make a lasting impact in our community through these transformational relationships. Small groups, families, and individuals are encouraged to participate in reaching out to our local community.
