At Chapelwood, we are committed to assisting our community in any possible way, and this includes ensuring that our environment is as healthy as it can be at a time when there is so much concern about the Coronavirus, COVID-19. 

To do our part in preventing the spread of COVID-19, Chapelwood is following protocol to not have group gatherings. Out of love and an abundance of caution, Chapelwood is canceling all events, groups, and worship services on all of our campuses until May 8. Note: If the CDC, state, and local leaders revise this timeline, we will follow their lead - whether it be a shorter or longer duration. 

Here's what to look for from Student Ministry 

One of the best ways to stay updated is to follow us on social media. You can click here to find us on FaceBook, and you can follow us on instagram @chapelwoodstudents.

Monday - Devotional Video from Staff Member

Tuesday - Video Testimonial

On Tuesday's we'll be share a video from either one our student leaders or someone who is involved with our student ministry, about what they're thankful for & where they've been able to see God working in their life. You can find these videos on our Facebook & Instagram pages.

Wednesday - Resources for Family Bible Study

We've always had our Bible Studies on Wednesdays and while that will stay consistent, during this season it will look a little different. We would love during this time for you as a family to have Wednesday night Family Bible Study. 

We will send out a guide that you can use for the next month so. It will have scripture references, questions, talking points, and a challenge for each week. Feel free to use all of it, add to it, change it to fit your family! The goal is for you to be engaging in scripture together! This guide will be sent via email, and can also be found on our Facebook page here, as well as on our Instagram profile in the story hightlight labeled "Stay Connected". 

Sunday - (AM) Livestream & (PM) Virtual Life Groups

In the morning we hope you will join us for church from the comfort of your home! Each Sunday Chapelwood will have a livestream of the sanctuary service. You can join us for worship online at live.chapelwood.org. We want to stay in touch, so please be sure to register your attendance and submit prayer requests online. 

On Sunday nights at 6:30 PM we will gather as life groups via Google Hangouts. This platform allows us to see each other and chat. For this to work, we will need an email address from each student. Please send to  Maddie Schnell. Watch the email for an invitation from Google Hangouts. You will also need to either download Google Hangouts or use in a web browser.  

On March 29th we will host our first life groups at 6:30 pm. Make sure you have Google Hangouts open at this time. These will be in the normal life group format with regular life group leaders.

On Going

Marco Polo: We have set up a Marco Polo group for each grade. If you are unfamiliar with this app, Marco Polo is a video messaging and video hosting service mobile app. Similar to a walkie-talkie, messages are sent immediately and are available for the recipients to view and respond to almost instantly. For your student to participate, please have them download the Marco Polo app (it's free!), then they can join the group and they will be able to connect with one another and staff by sending short videos. If you have issues joining a Marco Polo group, please contact Dalton Marcum.
