In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’
– Acts 20:35

Current Opportunities available:
Through this difficult season, teachers and staff need our support and encouragement more than ever as they continue to address the challenges of providing an education to the students during the pandemic. The Chapel has partnered with New Zion Baptist Church to come alongside the James Blair Middle School community to provide that support and encouragement. Please consider adopting a teacher or staff member today!
One great opportunity to serve in this season is to “adopt” one of our local or global missions partners. “Adoption” simply means coming alongside your partner in various ways, such as committing to pray for their specific needs. Other ways to engage with your adopted partner include building relationships, serving at their location, and donating your time, talents, or treasures. When you adopt a partner, your first step is to commit to prayer and then allow the Lord to direct next steps.
