During this health crisis, many people are faced with challenges (lost jobs, unpaid bills, sickness). The power of prayer is the power of God, who promises to answer our prayers. "I call upon you, for you will answer me, O God: incline your ear to me; hear my words" (Psalm 17:6).
Pastoral care is about remembering...remembering God's power, His promises, and His faithfulness during times of trial and affliction. If you are ill or anxious during this time, we would love to provide pastoral care. As always, please call the church office, 229-7152, with any pastoral care needs.
The Agape Ministry helps people within the Chapel family, and in our community, who are facing immediate financial crisis by offering financial assistance and guidance. For any inquiries, please contact 808-5887, .
CR National is offering daily (weekdays) Facebook Live sessions which may be used by individual participants to help with distance socialization, CR fellowship and encouragement, lessons and devotions. These will be held at 9 PM EDT, Mon-Fri. Connect by going to the CR Facebook page.
