Life Groups

/connect/current-life-groupsChapel by the Sea sponsored home care groups for years. They contributed to the lives of people and the strength of congregational life. Stories of the grace and blessing of God were reported from these encounters. Yet, something lacked.

 

We believe God is leading us to deepen our understanding of life together with Jesus and one another. We believe Jesus: "By this shall all men know you are my disciples, if you love one another." Love can only be practiced in community. By community we mean something richer than a weekly meeting with a quick prayer, Bible lesson, then parted ways until next event. Its purpose is to "image Christ", as Brad House repeatedly states in his book, "Community".

 

Life groups and discipleship relationships are not peripheral to the life of the congregation, but are essential expressions of the Kingdom. We are coming to understand that life groups must include not just mutual care, which is essential, but also worship and mission.

 

You can help us shift our thinking about and practice of small groups.

Children

Children are very important to us. They are messengers to a time we'll never see. We love children and try to support and assist the vital spiritual connection parents have to their kids. A primary goal is to introduce them to the Lord Jesus Christ.


All of our teachers and leaders who interact regularly with children and teens are fully screened according to current best practices.

Music

Worship is a matter of the heart. We are made to worship. We cannot not worship, just like the sun cannot not shine. It was made to do that. Shining is its nature. Worshiping is our nature. We will worship someone or something. Our purpose is to focus it in the Right Direction - Jesus.

 

Worship is how we live. Music is just one expression of worship. Sure, it's important. It's a beautiful gift given by God before the creation of the earth, and which will last when time is ended. But it's only one part of worship.


We who meet at the Chapel sing. (Actually, we'd be disobeying some of God's commands if we didn't.) We sing with piano and organ. We sing with guitars. We sing with strings. Occasionally we sing with voices only. We sing new. We sing old. The style is less important than the heart attitude. 


Before we leave this subject: one thing we know: every old song was once new, and the age of a song is not a criterion that matters to God. We invite you to join wholeheartedly.
