About Us

Welcome to our campus page. We’re glad you are here. We’re grateful you took the time to visit, and hope to see you soon at our weekend service. The Church is more than an event or a building, we are the body of Christ. Our church is made up of flawed, broken, imperfect humans who require grace daily. On our own we are hopeless; through the mercy, love and sacrifice of our Savior Jesus Christ, we have found a Great Hope.

You may have noticed that our church has multiple locations. While each campus has its own unique characteristics, The Chapel is one church with a single desire: We are committed to seeing every person believing in Jesus, belonging to family, becoming a disciple, and building his kingdom. We want to invite you to come see this in action and join us in sharing the love of Christ.

What should I wear?
Wear what makes you comfortable. We invite you to come as you. We're pretty casual around here!

When should I arrive?
Generally, 10 minutes early will give you plenty of time to park, come in, and find a seat before service starts. For parents with children, arriving 15 minutes before service is a good idea.

Where should I park?
Please feel free to park in the public parking lot adjacent to the Kenmore Branch Library. You can access the parking lot via the alley entrances off of either 13th St. or 15th St. The entrance to our gathering space is located in the rear of the building in the alley directly behind First Glance. If you are driving east on Kenmore Blvd you can turn left onto 13th St. and the entrance is in the alley immediately on your left. If you are driving west on Kenmore Blvd you can turn right onto 13th St and the entrance is in the alley immediately on your left.

Lead Campus Pastor

“I didn’t grow up in the church and my life was dramatically transformed by the gospel. I am passionate about inviting all people, even if they’re a thousand miles away, into a lifelong relationship with Jesus.”

Family Ministry at Kenmore

We have groups for children and students of all ages during our Sunday gathering time.

  • A Nursery for our youngest visitors with lots of toys and fun things for the littles ones to do.
  • A Potty trained through Kindergarten aged group that goes to the Tiny Glancers room (it's literally set up like a mini-kids museum featuring Kenmore Blvd. businesses!) where they’ll have a lesson and enjoy some play time.
  • Elementary age students stay with us during the music/worship portion of the morning, then go down to a living room style learning setting during the message.
  • Middle school and high school students stay with us for the message on Sundays. Ask one of our leaders or volunteers about the other middle and high school activities throughout the week that we’d love to invite your student to join.

Our volunteers are all background checked and required to attend several training sessions each year, with your child’s security and well-being as a focus. We do ask that children be symptom-free and no longer contagious with illness for 24 hours to help us protect the health of our little ones. Please let us know of any conditions, allergies, or medical needs that may apply to your child.

For more information about any of our children and student ministries, contact Eric McDonnell.

Adults

Following Jesus and becoming more like Him is a lifelong journey. Our church is full of adult men and women who need the grace and mercy of Jesus Christ to wash over our pain, sorrow, rough edges, and yes, our sin too. That’s right. We don’t have it figured out. The good news is, God does.

Our Adults Ministry offers many ways for you to explore the love of Christ and the joy of serving him. We come from all walks of life, generations, backgrounds, and cultures. Our hope for the men and women of our church is to grow in Christ by meeting together in fellowship, serving each other, and celebrating the glory of God.

Small Groups

Small groups are how we as a church actively practice lives centered on Jesus Christ, shared in community. Our groups are full of imperfect people seeking to grow in how we might serve and love each other. In the face of frequent rejection, Christ modeled for us what it looks like to consider others over ourselves. We aim to follow his lead. Much like the early church, we devote our time together to teaching, fellowship, service, and prayer.

Within small groups, we:

  • Enjoy one another and do life together
  • Celebrate diversity of age, race, gender, background, etc.
  • Actively seek out serving opportunities, and volunteering in community together
  • Create the space for both Jesus followers and Non-Jesus followers to build relationships
