Friends and family of Jason Chapel:
On Saturday Jason Chapel hosted the MidSouth District Quiz meet. We were asked to serve as host church due to damage and schedule changes at the camp ground. I posted a picture on Facebook with a comment stating how proud I was of our quizzers and campus. I had multiple visitors approach me and talk to me about the building and facilities and many asked questions and took pictures. Thank you to Michelle Greene for arriving early to help prepare the kitchen for lunch and snacks and for the help cleaning up. I also want to thank Melanie and Mick Holcomb for changing their schedules for chair set-up. They had planned to set up around 2 o’clock in the afternoon but changed their schedules for set up after an evening of work. I never noticed them on campus, but I do know it was late. Thank you for being flexible and for what you do each week.

Our District Quizzers were Briley Childers who participated as a Blue-level quizzer and took home the silver. Out o…

This past Saturday morning at 10:00am, student ministries pastor, Jonathan Hopper, led a team and participated in a program and project known as 30-hour Famine. 30 Hour Famine is a global project where groups and churches all over the world join together not only to raise funds, but to experience a 30-hour fast, complete a work project or two, and participate in specific lessons and prayer times.  The crew from Jason Chapel joined together Saturday morning and began growing and working together. After a morning session and class, they crossed the creek and removed rocks from areas that are vital to the upcoming camp and mowing season. In early evening a few snacks were required, and of course, provided. By the evening sessions spirits and energy were still high.   Sunday morning Mike and Julie Dickson provided an end to their fast with a wonderful breakfast together in The Summit. Monday morning in staff meeting Jonathan said, “We accomplished what w…

This past weekend, twenty Chapel Ladies and friends raided the mountains of East Tennessee and enjoyed a time of fellowship, devotion, and a little shopping. I am thankful for safe travels and I’m thankful for what this weekend will mean to us in the weeks and months to come. Thank you, Doris Umsted, Cheri Eaton, and Sandra Parchman, for organizing the event. I love that you started planning in August and September.  Thank you to Lori Wilson, Lori Knowles, and Cyrisse Eby for serving and bringing morning and evening devotions to the group.  And thank you to Michelle Greene for driving the church van “Brown Bessy” and keeping everyone safe. Ladies, you were missed, but we are thankful and glad you had this time away. 
Chapel men, I will post it on our Facebook page this week, but since the previous Wingmen event was canceled due to many things happening at once, put March 30, 2019 on your calendars.  We will meet in the Family Life Center at 11am for a…

Sunday served as another milestone in the life of the church. It wasn’t the exact day, but an annual report marks an anniversary in our relationship.  I have received multiple emails and have had conversations from those in attendance, concerning how much you appreciated the service and the information of the report. I will tell you what I tell members of the church board during most meetings. Information is not limited to reports. If you ever have a question, ask. If you are ever curious of our status or current situation, ask. I can either answer you very quickly or I will simply look up the information and answer at another time, but I will answer you. Thank you all for a wonderful year and for the support concerning the annual pastor’s report. 
Saturday was a busy day on campus. The morning started early with the Men’s Prayer Breakfast. The men cooked another filling breakfast and Paul Eby led a powerful devotion about love.  I wept during his pra…
