Restless - Libertyville (Women)

Women’s Large Group Study
Wednesdays Jan. 17-Mar. 14
9-11 a.m.
Libertyville Campus
Restless, a study by Jennie Allen, offers a practical plan to identify the threads of your life and intentionally weave them together for God’s glory. God has called us to do great things in His name. What does that mean for each of us individually?
We don’t need to add one more thing to our to-do lists, but instead stop and listen where we are. The study will focus on five areas: gifts, suffering, places, people, and passions. Jennie addresses the doubts, fears, and challenges that hold us back from our callings. Life will never be perfect, but we can be on our way to the best part of life—completing what we were made for.
Cost is $20.
Kid’s Club is available at a cost of $25 per child. Register early; childcare registration closes Jan. 10.

Missional Mentoring - Libertyville (Men)

Men’s Missional Mentoring
Groups Launching Fall 2018
Libertyville Campus
Do you have a strong desire to be a follower of Jesus Christ AND be a great husband, father, church member, son, civic leader, disciple-maker and friend …ALL at the same time? Missional Mentoring can help you do just that. This fall, we will be launching six mentoring groups – and we want you to be part of one!
It is our goal to impact the lives of men who are early in their Christian walk of faith in a way that points them toward an integrated Christian life. Volunteer mentors – elders and leaders from our campus – will endeavor to share what they have learned about success, most often focusing on what they have screwed up on so you can hopefully avoid the mistakes they made along the way. We will spend significant time on understanding who we are in God’s eyes, how to better relate to our wives, and how to best raise children. We’ll spend even more time on getting to know what it means to have a vibrant, living relationship with Jesus Christ.
Since there are a limited number of mentee spots available, here are the qualities of the type of men we are looking for:
  1. Potential leaders, men who have the potential to be influencers but aren’t quite there yet.
  2. Objective men who are willing to take direct, pervasive feedback without being defensive.
  3. Malleable men who will look honestly at themselves in the mirror and make changes to improve.
  4. Humble men who see their own brokenness and express a hunger for personal growth.
  5. Committed Jesus-followers, men who have a relationship with Jesus, or at least think they do. We’re not looking for seekers or non-believers.
  6. Willing to pay it forward, men who will commit to leveraging their life experience to influence other men.
If you’ve already attended one of our Vision Meetings and/or have talked with Bob Casey and you’re ready to take the next step towards being mentored, please fill out THIS APPLICATION. There are a limited number of mentee spots available. So, apply today!
If you have questions, please contact Bob Casey at

Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

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.
