Last Sunday: Don't Miss the Beauty of the Church
The Apostle Paul writes in Ephesians 5:25b, “…Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her…” Jesus bought the church at the price of his own blood. We are stewards of something of inestimable value. However, for some of us, church is just one item on our self-help playlist. Ephesians 2:4-5 reveals that we don’t need help, we need resurrection. Every time we gather, may we have the bride of Christ in focus, seeing the unsurpassed beauty of citizens and siblings growing together into God's sanctuary. What attitude or practice is hiding the beauty of the church from your eyes?
Corporate prayer helps us fix our eyes on Jesus and brings the beauty of his church into focus. We hope you will join us tomorrow (and every Wednesday) Sept. 22 at 9:30am for our devotion and prayer. You can pray with us either in-person under the tent or online at wcchapel.org/devotions, Facebo
Our Chapel family partners with New Zion Baptist Church to come alongside and share God's love with James Blair Middle School's teachers and staff. People from both churches show support through individually written cards and prayers. Special gifts and cookouts are given throughout the school year as an extension of this encouragement.

Tuesday, Oct. 5 from 9:30-11am, Outside under the tent
You are invited for a chance to reconnect with others and share conversation, coffee or tea, and “goodies” under the tent. Since our regular Senior Lunches have been postponed until 2022, we hope you can participate in this opportunity to gather and reconnect with other seniors. *Please note the change from the regular meeting day of Wednesday.

We will also have a Global Missions table where we will write notes of encouragement for our Global Mission Partners.

Fridays, 7-8am, Revolution Golf & Grille (1430 High Street, Suite 706)
All men in the community are invited for breakfast and to study together. Our time in God's word will focus on God's transformation of His people in the wilderness of Sinai. We will see how God wants to continue to transform us as we navigate through our own "wilderness journeys" today. We hope you will pray and invite your friends, neighbors, and co-workers to join us each Friday morning as we connect and grow together. For more information and to register, click the button below.
