WELCOME VISITORS

W

e are thrilled that you have chosen to worship with us on Easter Sunday! One of the Chapel’s core principles is to begin with people wherever they are on their spiritual journey. So whether you have been growing in your relationship with Jesus Christ for decades, or you are not sure what a relationship with Jesus looks like, we welcome you and count it an honor that you would spend time pursuing or exploring faith in Jesus with us. You will find that the answer to a lot of questions around here is “Yes.” Do we have contemporary worship or traditional? Yes! Is this a church for younger people or older people? Yes! Because when we are meeting people wherever they are on their spiritual journey, we have people at all different stages of growth, maturity and commitment, but we believe that when we are able to connect with God together, grow in our faith together, and serve together, it actually displays more of who Jesus is, not less. So if you are not connected to our family of faith, please know it would be a privilege for us to meet you, learn how we can serve you, and answer any questions you might have about the Chapel. The best way to get connected is to stop by the Welcome Center in the Main Foyer. There you will find a member of our Welcome Team ready to speak with you as well as a welcome bag that contains information and an invitation and gift certificate for you to return for breakfast or lunch at our Community Café. If you are unable to stop by the Welcome Center, you can always visit wcchapel.org/new for information or to get connected. Our hope is that today as we worship and experience community together, we will encounter God’s saving and transforming grace through Jesus Christ. —TRAVIS SIMONE, Lead Pastor
