WATCH PASTOR JOE ANNOUNCE WHERE OUR NEW FACILITY WILL BE!
New Chapel is all about helping people who are far from God find life in Jesus. We started in 2013 with a dream to see God do something great in the lives of people in Grand Rapids. We’ve seen God do so much as people have stepped out in faith. (You can check out the 2016 Annual Business Report here.)
It’s fun to think of the season our church is in like a newly married couple that is expecting. The appeal and freedom of the “renting scene” becomes eclipsed by some of the opportunities a starter home offers a growing family.
Isaiah 54:2-3 says, “…Enlarge the place of your tent, and let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; Do not spare; Lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes. For you shall expand to the right and to the left, and your descendants will inherit the nations…”
In life, marriage, and especially with God: things aren’t designed to stagnate. There’s a call to greater levels in life and influence. New Chapel is about 3-1/2 years old. To strategically place ourselves in a position to continue to grow, and to meet the evolving needs of our church: We need our first home, similar to the “starter-home” of a new family, to call our own.
Whether we renovate, buy, or build our facility – we don’t know yet!
What we do know is that God has more for us. New levels. When God opens opportunities, we need to be ready to seize the next move He has for us. And I know, To experience His move, we have to make our move.
New Chapel, it’s your move.
A building is simply a tool that we feel God will use to impact more people.
This step will allow us to triple our capacity on a Sunday morning! It will give us the much needed space for Welcome Parties, New Chapel Connect Classes, student events, worship practices, office space, meeting space, women’s and men’s events, community events, outreaches, volunteer training, and more.
Will you join us on this adventure and make your move with us?
Join the families at New Chapel, as we come together to make God’s Vision for greater influence through our church a possibility.
