Large Groups

The Chapel hosts many Large Groups each week throughout the year. These groups typically include either live or video teaching and a small group time where you can get to know each other, discuss what you are learning, encourage each other, and pray together. Don’t miss this great opportunity to grow in your faith as you develop relationships with other people in your group.

Forensic Faith - Lake Zurich (Men & Women)

Summer Bible Study
Tuesdays, Jun. 20-Aug. 1
9-11 a.m. & 7-9 p.m.

Join us for this summer study of “Forensic Faith: A Homicide Detective Makes the Case for a More Reasonable, Evidential Christian Faith”. Forensic Faith will help readers:

  • understand why they have a duty to defend the truth
  • develop a training strategy to master the evidence for Christianity
  • learn how to employ the techniques of a detective to discover new insights from God’s Word
  • become better communicators by learning the skills of professional case makers

With real-life detective stories, fascinating strategies, and biblical insights, Wallace teaches readers cold-case investigative disciplines they can apply to their Christian faith. Forensic Faith is an engaging, fresh look at what it means to be a Christian.

Purchase your book from Amazon or wherever books are sold!

R.S.V.P. to Stephanie at Please indicate if you’ll be attending the a.m. or p.m. session.

Childcare will be available for the morning session only – a flat fee of $10 for the entire summer!

Proverbs - Palatine (Women)

Women’s Summer Bible Study
Tuesdays, Jun. 13-Aug. 15
(we will not meet 7/4, 7/25 or 8/1)
6:30-8 p.m.
Room: W1

Join us for this summer study of Proverbs. This study will be led by Terry Davis. Terry chose Proverbs for the following reasons:

  • to provide summer flexibility (except for the first two lessons, they are stand-alone studies)
  • the topics to be covered: finances, friendship, family, work, and speech
  • to advance multi-generational community

Proverbs is a book where much can be gained by the symbiotic relationships among the decades of life!

Sign up at the Connection Table in the Palatine Campus Lobby or email Terry at if you’ll be attending and if you have any questions.

Missional Mentoring - Libertyville (Men)

Groups Launching Fall 2017
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

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.

Missional Community

Our Missional Communities are experiencing God together and learning  how to live and minister like Jesus did. These communities are our campuses’ core environment that helps us grow in becoming and making disciples, belonging in community, and moving with God’s mission. Talk to your campus pastor about how Missional Communities are emerging at your campus and how to be a part of them.
