"But just as you excel in everything-in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in love for us - see that you also excel in this grace of giving." 


2 Corinthians 8:7

CELEBRATION OF SHARING OFFERING

On Sunday November 18th, we will take a special offering to help families in our church and community who are going through difficult times having gifts for Christmas. Through your generosity in 2017 we were able to assist over 50 families! 


If you know of someone who attends Chapel Rock or anyone else on the westside of Indianapolis who needs assistance this Christmas season, pick up a Celebration of Sharing Referral form at the Information Center in the Foyer beginning October 28.  


It is not necessary for the people you refer to attend Chapel Rock; however, to receive assistance, people must be referred by someone who attends Chapel Rock. You may refer a maximum of 3 households. All completed referral forms should be returned to the Chapel Rock office or placed in the black box at the Information Center no later than Sunday, November 18, to be considered for assistance. 

Food Donations for

celebration of sharing

In addition to the gift cards Chapel Rock provides to the households needing assistance, we also provide each family with bags of groceries to enable them to enjoy a Christmas Dinner. 


Very simply we provide the suggested dinner menu items, you shop and bring in as many of the items as you can, and then the families receive an entire Christmas meal. The empty bags will be distributed on Sunday, November 4, and they are due back no later than Sunday, November 25.  Place your donated items/bags at the ‘Drop Zone’ in the Foyer.
