Our Life Groups do not meet during the Summer! Check back in August to see our plan for the fall!

One of the best ways for students to grow in grace is through Life Groups at Chapelwood. These gender and grade based groups meet every week during the fall and spring semesters. They are led by an amazing team of adult leaders.  These groups seek to have scripture, prayer, and authentic relationships as their foundation and always welcome new faces.  Topics of study vary and are chosen by individual leaders and groups.

What Social Distancing Means for Life Groups

Out of love and an abundance of caution, Chapelwood will extend the cancellation of in person worship and activities through September 8th, 2020. We are following the advice of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local/state officials. If the CDC, state, and local leaders revise this timeline, we will follow their lead - whether it be a shorter or longer duration.

During this time of social distancing, we have two possible ways to continue to 'meet' as Life Groups. The first is virtually by using Zoom & Google Hangouts. Each student is invited to send us their email so we can send them an invitation to the group chat for their Life Group. On the Sunday nights when Life Groups are scheduled, our leaders will start a group video chat at 6:30 PM

The second option is for each group to meet in different back yards, socially distanced according to what the leadership of the city of Houston & Chapelwood deem safe. If you are interested and feel comfortable hosting your student's Life Group in your back yard on Sunday Nights please email Maddie Schnell. 

We want to continue to give our students the opportunity to build community and friendships by sharing life updates & prayer requests during these meeting. If you have any questions, or would like to send us your student's email so they may be included, please email
