This Past Sunday
Fix Your Eyes on Jesus the Forgiver: "Come and have breakfast.”: (John 21:1-14)
On Easter, Travis used John 21 to show us that everyone needs to be rescued from things like weariness, hunger, isolation, blindness, failure, and other lesser things. The resurrection of Jesus reveals that He is the rescuer. If you need to be unstuck, do what the disciples did and run to the Rescuer. He rescues us by way of the cross by which he paid the full penalty of our sin. He went to the tomb and rose again from the dead to defeat death as the ultimate enemy and all we have to do is surrender to Him. What is your response to Jesus as your rescuer?
To hear and see more from our Sunday worship services visit wcchapel.org/worship or watch our condensed worship service below:
This Sunday, April 11, we will begin our next sermon series, Fix Our Eyes on Jesus with Our Doubt. We will fix our eyes on Jesus’ gentle care for those who are struggling to place their faith in Him. We will also be having communion during our services. If you plan to worship from home, you can pick up communion elements during the week in the Main Foyer or the Reception Desk in the North Foyer.
This past Easter, we introduced a new series where we will share personal stories of God's faithfulness amongst our Chapel family through videos and written articles. Look for these through our weekly emails, social media, and on our website: wcchapel.org/mystory. Everyone has a story of God's faithfulness in their life and we want to hear yours. If you are willing to share your story with others, please contact Jessica Grimes at . Watch Katie Kunkel's story below about God's goodness as her family moved to Williamsburg and found community.
Sundays, beginning April 11 through May 16 from 10:30–11:30 am, Room 128
Throughout this season of Lent, we have been fixing our eyes on Jesus the Forgiver – but forgiving others is difficult to do. If you are struggling to forgive someone, this class, led by Joyce Keil, is an opportunity to find healing in our lives as we learn about the different levels of forgiveness and how prayer helps us extend God's grace to others. When we fully accept the forgiveness that God gives to us and extend that forgiveness to others, we will experience peace, joy, and a closer walk with our Heavenly Father. To register, contact Hunter Ruch at or 941-1246.
CEF reaches out to children through teams of screened and trained volunteers who teach after-school Good News Clubs® (GNC). 25+ volunteers from the Chapel have been going into three of our neighborhood elementary schools for the past few years sharing the Gospel. Your Good News Club teams are praying that schools will be open in the fall. We miss seeing the children in person to greet them with enthusiasm, listen with acceptance, pray for their hurts, and offer them a living hope in Jesus!
There is more work to do to reach the 40,000+ children in the Peninsula area! One way you can support this work is to join our Spring Virtual Fundraiser by clicking on the link below any time until April 11. Hear how God is using a NY Jets running back with a passion for children, a former Marine that God recruited to teach children, and a teen whose life was forever changed. Thank you for your support!
