At Chapel Springs, we believe living together in community is essential for our development as followers of Jesus. We use Life Groups as a way to experience life-on-life discipleship through relationships with one another. Our groups are a place for people to pray, share life, and lean into God's word together. We invite you to join us as we seek to live the way of Abiding, Community, and Mission through our Life Groups. 

PRAYER FOCUS


God is a God of communication and words. Throughout the ages He has communicated to us through the written Word, the spoken word and the Incarnate Word. The Christmas story reminds us that God chose to speak into our lives by sending His Son to directly communicate His message of forgiveness, grace and mercy. Jesus was God’s greatest prophet, declaring that a new day had come; a new way had been made; a new relationship had been forged. Jesus announced a new season of hope, joy, love and peace.

Yet, at this time of year, Jesus’ voice is often drowned out by the “sounds of the season”—commercials for the newest fad toy, silver bells and red kettles, 24/7 Christmas music, and invitations to parties, plays and concerts. Add to these, the multitude of other voices clamoring to be heard—bloggers, politicians, astrologers, newscasters, fortune-tellers, musicians, authors and psychics —each one believing they have a relevant “word” for us and insisting that we listen closely to their key idea, fresh insight or thought for the day.

We will not likely hear the voice of the Lord until we pull away from the hustle and bustle of the season and quiet our hearts in His presence. There, in those quiet places, when we are still and hushed, He speaks and we hear His voice. He calls us to himself, assures us of His love and speaks peace over our lives. In those moments, we find rest in His presence and strength for our day. His words produce joy and instill hope, providing guidance and direction for our future. He re- veals himself to us, not just as the babe of Bethlehem, but also as the Word of the Lord. is Advent, may we take time to listen to Him!
