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.

Kids Club will be available at a cost of $59 for one child and $89 for two or more children.

Although online registration is closed, you can still join us! We ask that you purchase your own book and sign up via email to Carrie Weber or Sarah Hill at palatinewomen@chapel.org.

True Story: A Christianity Worth Believing In - Libertyville (Men & Women)

True Story: A Christianity Worth Believing In
By James Choung
Sundays, Oct. 15-Nov. 19
During the 9 a.m. service
Libertyville Campus (Upstairs Lobby)

The world is not the way it is meant to be — that is clear from what we see around us…hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, terrorism, conflict in our land and around the world, pain and suffering. Many around us are looking for God, or a god, but often writing off Christianity as irrelevant and outdated. How can we talk about the gospel so that it is good news to those who hear? How can we become followers of Christ, as a community, that heals the world around us? Come on a six-week journey with us to explore the gospel using James Choung’s True Story, to find practical and relevant ways to tell the good news to a hurting world.

Cost: $10 (includes book).

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.
