Where can you Connect at Jason Chapel?

 

Adult options and connection points:

 
Jason Chapel Women's Ministries -- This ministry works hard and plays hard.  With an active calendar our ladies are consistently in a season of bible study and growth.  They also care for each other and serve those in need.  An annual retreat followed by Spring Fling tend to energize this group for the remainder of the year.  
 
Jason Chapel Men's Ministries --This ministry works hard to connect to each other and find ways to get
men engaged in the word, a relationship with the church, and with each other.  There are groups of men
who meet for breakfast or lunch during the week along with a monthly prayer breakfast in our Family
Life Center.  This group tackles local mission projects and assist many within and outside the local church. 
 
Jason Chapel PreSchool Ministries -- This ministry is the introduction of Biblical stories and truths for our
students.  A fully staffed nursery and preschool worship area are active during each regularly scheduled service.
Our preschool department is not merely a child care service.  The leaders within this ministry teach and cultivate
a wonderful foundation for relationship and faith.   
 
Jason Chapel Elementary Ministries -- This ministry is specifically for our students in 1st through 5th grade.
Students within this age group experience a children's worship time on an every-other-week rotation.  
Not only does this help with our volunteers, it helps connecting our children to worship with adults and
families.  Our elementary students participate in a week long children's camp during the summer, day trips, and
plenty of other events.  This ministry also focuses on spiritual growth and knowledge.  During Sunday school
classes, worship, and small groups, the foundation of biblical truths are not only taught but
application is applied to the teaching. 
 
Jason Chapel Student  Ministries -- This ministry is specifically for our students in 6th through 12 grade.  
Students in this age group also experiment a wonderful week of camp during the summer months.  Our teens
participate in mission projects, and also have places to serve within the local church.  Wednesday evenings from
6:30pm to 7:30pm our teens experience a student led worship experience complete with prayer and worship
songs and sermon (by adult leaders).  Not only do our students worship together on Wednesday nights, they
worship together with us on Sunday mornings.  With plenty of activities and nights to hang out, the focus of
our leadership team during this time is to encourage and help discover an active relationship with Jesus Christ
and the ability to apply the lessons learned from preschool all the way to where they are.  
 

 Where else can you connect?

Mission Outreach

 We are active in sending missionaries and supporting these missionaries with our money and with our prayers. Our congregation (with participants from children to Sr. adult age) has been directly involved in one to three mission trips per year - in places like Haiti, Africa, Cuba, Kentucky, Ohio and many other locations . Once per month we have a special Missions Focus service. We encourage all of our people to respond to God’s call for laborers, whether it means that they move to a foreign country or live and minister in our own community.

Music & Programs

God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Many of our congregation get involved in our music ministry. Some play instruments. Some are vocalists.  We also have many opportunities for artistic skills, such as at Vacation Bible School or set decor for special programs and plays. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of Jason Chapel, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.

Ushers & Greeters

Our ushers fill an important role. They are involved in directing attendees to their seats, ensuring the safety of the building during services, guiding traffic, helping visitors, answering questions, providing direction and generally ensuring that the service can proceed problem-free. The usher team is a servant-hearted group of men and women whose ministry is integral to church life.

Media & Technology

Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes. Many of our weekly sermons are uploaded to our website in audio formats. We also maintain active Facebook and Twitter feeds for additional church communication.

Prayer Warriors

Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. We are a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Each Sunday morning before the morning service, a team of volunteers is praying for the ministry of the Word. Throughout the week, we notify a special group of pray-ers with ePrayer requests to pray for their pastor, any special requests, and missionary prayer needs. Each Wednesday evening, the church comes together for a special time of prayer and Bible study.

Bible & Brew Cafe & Fellowship Meals

Each Sunday morning from 8am until 9 am (when Small Groups and Sunday School begin) we have a cafe that offers a variety of fresh single cup brew coffee, teas, cocoa, juice and pastries.  This is a great opportunity to visit with others and prepare for a morning of study and worship.  The cafe remains open until 9:30 for those who have classes on other days or locations.  We also have all church potlucks every month or two.  We can always used some fresh baked muffins, juice, or a hand in setting up and cleaning up.
