This Past Sunday
Fix Your Eyes on Jesus with our Doubt: "Help my Unbelief”: (Mark 9:14-29)
In Mark 9:14-29, we learn that our perfect God meets us in our imperfect faith. All of us are in a valley from time-to-time but that doesn't mean our faith needs to be nonexistent in those moments. Rich pulled out four tools from the Mark 9 passage that we can use to find faith in the valley — prayer, listening, worship, and surrender. We need to have others pray with and for us, especially in those times when we are struggling to pray ourselves. We need to listen to God’s words as we read the Bible. Worship helps us experience God’s presence in the valleys and ultimately the pain of the valley calls us to surrender our life to Jesus who descended into the ultimate valley for us so that He could lead us to the mountaintop with God.

Chapel Family Conversations are back! Join us for this informal gathering to talk with our Lead Pastor, ask any questions you might have, or provide your feedback. We look forward to the conversation together. To join online, visit wcchapel.org/conversation, Facebook, and YouTube.
Listen to Claire Jacobs, from the Chapel, and Leslie Williams, from New Zion Baptist Church, as they update us on our partnership to come alongside James Blair Middle School's teachers and staff.
The mission of Colonial CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) is to promote and protect the best interests of children who have been abused or neglected, by training court appointed volunteers to advocate for them in the court and the community, so they have the opportunity to thrive in safe and permanent homes. For more information, visit colonialcasa.org. The following testimonies are from our Chapel family who volunteer with this organization.
"Children in difficult and dangerous home situations are among the most vulnerable people in our community. I consider it a privilege to have the opportunity to be a voice for the voiceless and to make even a small difference in the life of a child in need." — Sarah Ortego
"You don’t realize when you are trained to become an advocate for an abused or neglected child how much you will be impacted. For me, beyond working to find ways that each child will be loved, fed, sheltered and educated, every relationship has resulted in respecting more deeply and understanding more fully, our wide spectrum of humanity." — Linda Palmer
We extend our prayers and sympathy to the family and friends of Myrtle Vaughn.
During this unique season, we want to better know the Chapel family in order to better serve the Chapel family. While we are grateful for the opportunities we have to meet folks wherever they are by worshiping together outside, inside, and online, we are also experiencing the practical challenge of knowing our entire Chapel family as well as we can. For this reason, if you consider the Williamsburg Community Chapel your church home at any level then we invite you to respond to our Chapel Family Questionnaire.
