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.

The Armor of God - Palatine (Women)

The Armor of God
By Priscilla Shirer
Women’s Large Groups Study
Wednesdays, Aug. 30 – Dec. 6
(Off 11/22 for Thanksgiving)
9:15-11 a.m.
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. 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.
The Enemy always fails miserably when he meets a woman dressed for the occasion. The Armor of God, more than merely a biblical description of the believer’s inventory, is an action plan for putting it on and developing a personalized strategy to secure victory.
ONLINE REGISTRATION:
Aug. 2 – Sept. 6 – $15 per person.
Kids Club will be available at a cost of $59 for one child and $89 for two or more children. Registration must be completed and payment submitted by Aug. 27 to secure a spot for your child.
Partial and full scholarships are available. If you have any general questions about the study or would like to inquire about scholarships, please email Carrie Weber or Sarah Hill at palatinewomen@chapel.org.

It is our heart’s desire to know God intimately through his Word. Join us and bring a friend! This study is open to women in other churches and throughout the community.

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 bobc@caseyreps.com.

“For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”

Matthew 18:20

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.
