The Gospel of Genesis: 

A 5-Part Companion Study

Starting this Sunday, May 24th, we will begin a brand new message series entitled, “The Gospel According To Genesis”. We are excited to provide you with an opportunity to go deeper with an individual bible study which accompanies this sermon series. Genesis is full of stories of people, but this goes beyond those narratives, into a deep dive of what God’s larger purposes are through them. Though we sin, God does not give up nor abandon us. Though we fail, God still loves us and values us. God has an eternal plan, and Genesis teaches us about that eternal plan, leading ultimately to Jesus Christ.

There are 5 lessons to this study, which is a self-guided companion study to go along with the five-week sermon series. We encourage you to spend some time each week after the sermon on this study. Our goal is that you come out of this with a richer, deeper understanding of The Gospel according to Genesis.

Small Groups

Small Groups are: 

A weekly gathering of people who meet in a home or here at the church that have fellowship, study the word, pray together, and are taking intentional steps toward Christ by providing opportunities for spiritual growth as they deepen their relationship with God.  

In a small group you will:

Understand the Bible better

Build new relationships

Experience life change!


My faith, while tested, has gotten me through, and one of God’s greatest gifts on this journey has been my small group at church.”  -Andrew Aun, Chapin UMC member


We have so loved and been blessed by our group. We were just discussing last night that many of us met for the first time 9 weeks ago and now we feel like family!  A true testament to the power and joy in authentic community!

-Jan Mayo, Chapin UMC Small Group Leader

Church Wide Studies

Once or twice a year, we come together in both a sermon series and a church-wide study.  Small groups are formed specifically for these studies as well.  This allows us to connect and grow as we take a deeper dive into the Bible together.  Below are links to previous studies:  



1 Thessalonians

Sunday School

We believe that Sunday morning Sunday School is a large and vital part of our Christian journey. 

The Sunday School hour runs from 10:10-11:10 and allows our church family to dig deep into the Word of God and build authentic, transformational relationships with one another. 


For updated information on Sunday School classes, please contact Marcy Kenny, 

Assimilation Minister at 345-2801 or and she will be glad to assist you!
