Hurricane Harvey Relief

Clicking the banner above will open (in a new window) the donation page which Samaritan's Purse has dedicated to Hurricane Harvey Relief: samaritanspurse.org/donation-items/hurricane-harvey-relief/

Hurricane Harvey, a devastating Category 4 storm, hit the Texas coast on August 25. Many areas were battered, and Houston experienced catastrophic flooding. As waters recede, Samaritan's Purse U.S. Disaster Relief teams will fan out across affected areas and bring relief to homeowners in Jesus' Name. Specifically, our volunteers will tarp roofs, cut trees, and perform mud-outs—tearing out waterlogged walls and flooring and taking damaged belongings to the curb. Please keep families in Houston and along the Texas coast in your prayers.




Family Notes

'Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.'
Galatians 6:2

It is our privilege as Christians to bring one another before the Throne of God. The tragedies of the last few weeks, and conditions in our world remind us to do that! Below is a list of some of those prayer needs:

Fires in California with a great loss of lives and property

Shooting in Las Vegas with a great loss of lives

Hurricane in Texas with loss of lives and possessions

Hurricane in Florida with loss of lives and possessions

Hurricane in Puerto Rico with loss of lives and possessions

Need for strength for volunteers who are assisting in all the above areas

Threat of possible nuclear problems with North Korea (Jik and Michelle Yousefi recently travelled to South Korea to attend Sheariah's South Korean wedding; pray for safety for Sheariah and her husband as they make their home there.)

'Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints.'
Ephesians 6:18


We praise the Lord for His blessing on the Men's Conference 2017 and on Jimmy Davis and George Callister for speaking during our Missions Awareness on Sunday, and the Harvest Celebration which followed.


Continue to pray for healing for Tim and Fon Canatella's grandson, Nova; also for Sherry Scheihing, Jik Yousefi, Tom Yarrison, Nancy Shew, Barbara Knoppel, Betsy Maresh (Betsy is in rehab at Franklin Woods) and for Shirley McCann's sister in law.


Pray for Lisa Holbrook's mother, Joy Fox, as she was to have hip replacement surgery this Tuesday but it has been postponed because of an infection in her jaw. Pray the infection will be resolved so the hip surgery can be rescheduled. Also pray for Timmy Jr. as he is having oral surgery this Wednesday, and for Tim Sr. as he is scheduled for neck surgery on Dec. 12. as he has been experiencing a lot of pain, pray the surgery will alleviate it.

Continue to pray for Andrea Knauer's friend, Samantha DiPaola. Samantha had surgery this past Monday to have a shunt placed in her head. She has been battling infection since August when she had a cancerous tumor removed from her brain, and will have a long recovery from this most recent surgery.


Thank you church!
God is working powerfully through your gifts & prayers.

Have you heard of our Church Partnerships?


Background: Chafer Seminary was begun by academically-credentialed pastors and missionaries who had grown frustrated with the theological chaos and shallowness in so-called evangelical circles, with the neglect of consistent Biblical instruction adequate to cope with the trials of living in a neo-pagan culture, and with the traditional financial and geographical obstacles to seminary level training within a student's home church location. The seminary, therefore, has worked diligently to make quality training available by internet technology so that students can remain in their local church community and immediately utilize their training in local ministry opportunities.

Academic Training Program: Students can enroll in courses for credit toward a Masters of Biblical Education degree or a Theological Masters degree if they have a college degree or for a certificate if they do not. Or students can enroll for personal enrichment and local ministry and can do so either for credit that can be used later or for simple auditing the course. Chafer courses are administrated in two ways: either as scheduled courses in the Fall or Spring semester, or as self-paced courses.

Currently for the Fall semester, the Christian Framework 1 course taught by Charles Clough, MS and ThM, is being offered that covers significant Biblical events from the creation to the reign of King David (Genesis to 2 Samuel), the doctrinal truths revealed in each event, the contemporary cultural opposition to those truths, and the nature of how these truths interlock into a powerful framework structure for developing and strengthening one's worldview.

This course will be either a scheduled type of course or a self-paced course depending upon the need of interested students. Pastor Kenley will be made aware of any Chapel student and the materials used in the course so he can pray for, encourage, and suggest ways to use this training in the ministry of the Chapel.

For further information, see the seminary website at http://chafer.edu/. Look under 'Home', 'Students,' and 'Resources.'
