Fix Your Eyes on Jesus the Forgiver: "Some who trusted in themselves.”: (Luke 18:9-14)
Through the parable of the Pharisee and the tax collector Rich showed us the importance of humility. Humble hearts are healed hearts and so the parable calls us to stop looking to ourselves for righteousness. Instead look to Jesus who entered Jerusalem on a baby donkey, an animal of humility. Although the King, Jesus humbly went to experience pain, rejection, mockery, and the cross to save us. May we live humbly to find healing, life, and forgiveness in Jesus. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.

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. Watch the video below for more information and to register, contact Hunter Ruch at or 941-1246.
Three organizations, Greater Williamsburg Movement, the Hampton Roads City Collective and the Virginia Unity Project are committed to go to “the altar” in prayer for 2021. As part of 31 churches/prayer groups that have adopted a day a month to pray for our cities, state, nation and world, the Chapel has committed to the first Thursday of every month. Thank you for joining us in this commitment!
April Week One Theme: Revival in the Church (changed hearts lead to transformation)
Bible Verse: Isaiah 57:15 – For this is what the high and exalted One says – He who lives forever, whose name is holy: “I live in a high and holy place, but also with the one who is contrite and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite.”
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!
