THE ARMOR OF GOD - PRISCILLA SHIRER
All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you — unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life.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.

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly- Precept Workbook (NASB) - (7 lessons)
In this last course of our Kings and Prophets Series, you'll see worsening religious and political conditions in Judah. The final chapters of 2 Kings and 2 Chronicles introduce us to the last kings of Judah - one the best since King David ("the Good"), the other the worst Judah ever had ("the Bad").
When God brings the Babylonians in to judge Judah and Jerusalem for their sins, everything gets really "Ugly." Study hard and you'll learn how God can keep you when your life combines "the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly."

Do you desire deeper connection with the body of Christ? One of the best ways to build those relationships is through service. There are plenty of opportunities to serve within The Chapel family.
KINGS WORLD - Pre-Service Childcare
We’re looking for a few people to serve with young children (under 10 yrs. old) every other week, for an hour before the start of our first worship gathering. You will be providing this service for parents who serve in multiple areas, that need to arrive before King’s World opens. Parents will pre-check-in their children, drop them off to you, and once King’s World is open, you will drop them off at their appropriate classroom. This service provides a unique opportunity to serve our church, while never missing any of our morning worship gatherings. We are asking that you to commit to a six month time period, in an effort to build relationships and also keep the team consistent. What a fun way to meet young families, as well as, build community with those serving with you.

Up to 12 families and 46 single women can find hope and healing in the facility’s two-year resident recovery program. Cornerstone Manor Women and Children’s Shelter is a welcome relief from the uncertainties and fear homeless women and families face. For many, it’s the closest thing to home.
The “Grace House” Transitional Residence Program is a shelter which provides a unified delivery of vital community services to homeless parolees (individuals recently released from a New York State correctional facility) who statistically return to the community unprepared to reintegrate. These men are unable to find suitable housing and are all homeless upon their release from incarceration. The residents of “Grace House” are held accountable for their Parole reporting mandates, are mentored and introduced to life skills training, and are equipped with skills necessary to manage life affairs and become productive members of society.

Our women's ministry is for women of any age and background. We believe women are uniquely gifted, especially in the area of communication. God uses us in amazing ways to touch the lives of our families, friends, neighbors and co-workers when we are looking to Him for wisdom and strength. This is the heart behind Thrive. We want to encourage you in your life with God so that you grow to be more like Christ. As you become more like Him, you will naturally desire to love, care, bless and give to others so they may know Christ as well.
Grace and peace,
Thrive Women’s Ministry exists to encourage all people towards transformation for a life lived outward.
