The Armor of God
by Priscilla Shirer
All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you — unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. A devoted, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, your relationships, your resilience, your dreams, your destiny. But his battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. If you’re tired of being pushed around and caught with your guard down, this study is for you.

1 Peter: A Living Hope in Christ
by Jen Wilkin
Our inheritance through Christ is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading. In 1 Peter, a man of faith and flaws and eyewitness to the life of Christ challenges us to look beyond our current circumstances to a future inheritance. He shares his concerns on big picture issues for the early church, describes believers’ true identity in Christ, and ultimately helps readers discover what it means to experience the Living Hope they have in Christ.

The cost for this study is $30 and Kid’s Club is available for $25 per child.

Thursdays Feb. 9–Apr. 13
6:30-8:30 p.m.
The Chapel, Rt. 31 in McHenry

Join us as Beth Moore peels back the layers of history and shows how very contemporary and applicable the story of Esther is to our lives. If you’ve ever felt inadequate, threatened, or pushed into situations that seemed overpowering, this is the study for you. Just as it was tough being a woman in Esther’s day, it’s tough today. This portion of God’s word contains treasures to aid us in our hurried, harried, and pressured lives.

The Chapel – Grayslake
Thursdays, Feb. 2 – Apr. 27
7 – 9 p.m.
Hosted at the Grayslake Campus (open to McHenry & Mundelein too)

Bible scholars compare James to the prophet Amos. In other ways James more closely resembles the Book of Proverbs than any New Testament book. Come along with Beth Moore on a journey to get to know both the man and the Book of James. You will never be the same again.

Topics in this study include: joy, hardship, faith, reversal of fortunes for rich and poor, wisdom, gifts from above, single-mindedness, the dangers of the tongue, humility, and prayer.

Each registered participant will receive a member book which includes a viewer guide for use with the “James: Mercy Triumphs” DVD teaching sessions, and personal interactive study for five days each week. Your small group time will include sharing your thoughts and questions, discussing what you are learning, and praying with each other.

Small Groups

Joining a small group at The Chapel is a great way to connect with people as you join together and pursue God in Bible study, prayer and community. The Chapel can feel like a pretty big church. Even at our smaller campuses, getting to know people will take more than just going to church on the weekend. Small groups will grow your faith and develop strong friendships as you study, encourage and do life together.
