Happy New Year ONEchapel Family and Friends!
We had fantastic services on Sunday as we kicked off the New Year with our new series, “In the First Place: Priorities for Life.” Remember, whatever happens first influences the rest. God wants us to see our lives through the lens of His Word and His Spirit.
That’s why we’re hosting FIRST WEEK at ONEchapel right now. We had a great time with a bunch of people praying together at noon yesterday and a phenomenal worship time last night. We’ll meet everyday this week at noon with a night of worship each evening where we will pray and seek God together at 7pm. Both meetings are at the Monterey Oaks campus. TAG will be joining us on Wednesday night as well! This week is about starting the year off right—giving God the first place in our lives. We’d love for you to join us.
FINANCIAL PEACE UNIVERSITY
I want us to live according to biblical principles in every area of our lives. Finances are one of the most difficult areas to gain wisdom and strength. That’s why we are starting Financial Peace University. In this enjoyable class you will learn how to build savings, eliminate personal debt, and secure your family’s future. If you’re tired of being enslaved to your spending habits and struggling to find financial freedom, this is the course for you. Classes begin January 19th from 7:00pm-9:30pm every Thursday at the Monterey Oaks campus. There is a cost for materials of $100 per individual or couple. Contact Kasey Gahler at 512-709-4837 or at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
CONNECT GROUPS SUNDAY
We’re preparing to kick-off our next semester of Connect Groups on Sunday, January 15th. After church that day, we’ll have group leaders available for you to meet as well as a complete menu of Connect Groups happening in different locations and times around the city. Some of you need coaching in your life and you need to belong to a community where you are loved and challenged. Others have gifts and encouragement to share. We all need fellowship. Let’s get connected in our community reaching out and making a difference. There will be all kinds of groups to choose from, so be praying about where God wants to connect you!
Now that we’ve moved into our new facility at Monterey Oaks, we’re realizing that there are even more opportunities to serve and use the gifts that God has given each of us. Every ministry, from children’s to coffee stations to hospitality and ushering, needs your help. Would you be willing to serve others? If you haven’t been to Square ONE yet, please join us on Sunday evenings at 5:30pm to find your place. If you’ve been to Square ONE but still need to get plugged in, contact Spero.Stavros@onechapel.com and start finding fulfillment in your life as you serve others.
