ONEchapel Family and Friends,
What an incredible Easter Sunday we shared together! We had our highest attendance day ever and a bunch of people made decisions for Christ while many others had their first church experience in a movie theater. You invited people and our teams did a fantastic job of serving. Way to go ONEchapel! It was a day of celebration and reflection of who Jesus is and what his resurrection means to us.
Don’t miss this next Sunday as we continue our series, “Resurrection People!”
If you are new to the ONEchapel community, we want you to find a place to connect to this family. That’s why we’ve created Square ONE, a three-week membership track where I share our history, values and guiding principles. It is a great place to meet some other new folks and begin to find your place to connect with and serve at ONEchapel. Join me this Sunday, May 1st at 5:30pm in the ONEchapel offices (3800 Ben Garza Lane, Austin, TX 78749). I hope to see you there!
CHURCH WORK DAY!!!
There is nothing more bonding for relationships than working together on a project. And we’ve got just the thing! We’re having a Church Work Day on Saturday, May 7th from 9am – 3pm at our offices (3800 Ben Garza Lane, Austin, TX 78749). We want to empty out the garage and a room full of equipment to create more space for more meetings and events. We’ll also make some changes outside to get ready for summer. So, bring your work gloves, shovels and rakes as we beautify and clean up a great space for ministry!
Announcing our first ever Men’s Meeting at ONEchapel! I want to invite all the men, 13 years old and up, to join me for an evening of fellowship, worship and a challenging word about our responsibility as men to lead and to serve. We’re meeting Monday night, May 16th at 7pm. We’ll have some good man-food and a time to connect with each other. This is a chance to make new friends and meet other men on this journey of faith. No man can do it alone, so come on…it’s time to Man Up!
The season just after Easter is so important for connecting new people and helping one another grow. Be sure to reach out to people you don’t know. And check out some of the great Connect Groups that are already meeting and some new ones just starting.

MEMORIAL WEEKEND PICNIC, WORSHIP NIGHT AND BAPTISM
Join us for a picnic, worship and baptism on Sunday afternoon, May 29th from 6:00pm to 9:00pm at the Church offices! This is an event you don’t want to miss. Bring your best covered dish and enjoy some fellowship, a huge time of worship and a special baptism service all out in the open under a big tent. More details coming…it’s going to be a memory-maker!
I love doing life with you. And though it can be messy because we all struggle from time to time, there is nothing more encouraging and uplifting than realizing that you’re not alone. You belong to a family. I’m grateful for you, ONEchapel family.
Jesus is building HIS Church! And the best is yet to come!
