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.

James: Mercy Triumphs - Grayslake (Women)

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.

Register
Early Registration: $20 (Jan. 14 – Jan. 22)

We were never meant to take this journey of faith alone or in secret. God has entrusted us with the great and mighty gift of the gospel, something too precious and life-giving to keep to ourselves.

Each registered participant will receive a member book which includes a viewer guide for use with the “Entrusted” DVD teaching sessions, and personal interactive study for five days each week. We will view a total of six DVD teachings every other week and two full hours of small group discussion time on the opposite week.  Your small group time will include sharing your thoughts and questions, discussing what you are learning, and praying with each other.In order to best serve you, we want to ensure that we provide each woman with a trained small group leader for the study.

You can sign up in the Lobby or register online from January 29 – February 19. There is no fee for this group.

Not a Fan - (Men)

The Chapel- Libertyville

Wednesdays  from 6–7:30 a.m. Mar. 22-May 24
Thursdays from 7–8:30 p.m. Mar. 23-May 25
Saturdays from 7–8:30 a.m. Mar. 25-May 27

Are you a fan or a follower? The dictionary defines a fan as “an enthusiastic admirer.” Fans want to be close enough to Jesus to get all the benefits, but not so close that it requires sacrifice. The Not a Fan study by Kyle Idleman challenges men to consider what it means to call ourselves Christians. With a direct frankness you’re not likely to hear in Sunday school, Kyle offers an invitation to take an honest look at your relationship with Jesus. His call to follow may seem radical, but it’s something Jesus desires for every believer.

Cost is $15. Scholarships are available. If you have questions or want to inquire about scholarships, contact Tom Krueger at tksk99@att.net.

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.
