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

Pray for Maureen Carey as her sister, Josephine Hammen, recently passed away; also pray for the Moore family as Sharon recently passed away. The Moores are former members of FC.


Continue to pray for Pam Kenley and Lisa Holbrook’s mother, Joy Fox, as both recuperate from recent surgery. Continue to pray for healing for Michael Denbow.

Dear Beautiful Family,

How grateful I am to be a part of this church family. Nancy and I were overwhelmed by the love and comfort you bestowed on us in our time of utter dismay. The cards and the comments were so helpful and touching. Thank you all for your prayers and thank you all who could make it to my son’s farewell. Yes, we miss him dearly but we fully trust in God’s promises. When we all get to heaven . . . what a day that will be! Thank you Jesus for planting me at Fellowship Chapel. Our deepest gratitude.

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.'
