myVillage


It’s a very big deal to us that we stay connected, active and helpful to the world outside theChapel. Our schools, businesses, neighborhoods, government and friendships all need committed followers of Christ. myVillage projects are just one part of outreach.

myVillage is the name we give to our outreach effort. Some of the church people have stepped up and volunteered to lead myVillage projects that serve the homeless, single moms, orphans and many more the marginalized folks in our community who need to know that they matter, and that someone cares.

theChapel is not just a place you go to, it’s a place you go from

Outreach is not limited to those who work in myVillage projects, its part of our lifestyle. We all have a responsibility to walk out the doors and demonstrate God’s power through the way we live and the way we serve.

“…if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones who is my disciple, truly I tell you, that person will certainly not lose their reward.”
