covid-19 response

With Governor Holcomb's announcement on April 6, extending the stay-at-home mandate through April 27, the Chapel Rock building will continue to be closed at least through April 27. All worship services through the month of April will continue to be live-streamed only. The only activity at our building will continue to be the drive-thru Food Pantry on the first and third Thursdays of each month


We want to let you know that due to the shelter-in-place mandate, the Chapel Rock office will now be closed beginning tomorrow, Wednesday, March 25. At this time the only activity which will happen in our building through Tuesday, April 20, will be our Food Pantry on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month.


That being said, your Chapel Rock staff is still very much at work even though our campus is closed. Just like our church is not tied to the building, our staff is working hard to remain connected and in-tune with your needs remotely via phone calls and email. Our office phone will be re-directed to the home of one of our ministry assistants so we can be responsive to your needs.


Social distancing does not mean spiritual distancing. If there was ever a time we needed to hear the truth of God’s word, it is now! Many of you joined us last Sunday via our live-stream and we are making plans to have that ready again for you at 9:15 and 11 AM this Sunday.


Recently we asked you if you’d set up online giving. Several of you did that, and we cannot tell you how much we appreciate it. Would you continue to join with us as much of our ministry moves online during this (hopefully) short-term crisis? You can give one time or set up recurring giving at chapelrock.org/give.  We even had a few members walk their gifts into the office on Monday. Beginning tomorrow, Tuesday, March 24, that will not be an option, so the only other option is to mail your offering to us at 2020 N Girls School Rd, Indianapolis, IN 46214.


Every week, in our vision benediction, we talk about sharing a story of wholeness. We have never had such a powerful opportunity to live that out as we do now. You likely have neighbors, co-workers and family members who are in need of hope and healing. Maybe you could put together a kit of supplies, write them a note, shoot them a text or take them a meal. Do something simple to encourage them and let them know that you are there, that you care and that you want to help meet needs they may have in this season. 


It is worth repeating that if any of you are having difficulty getting to the grocery or the pharmacy, we have had several folks contact the office to say they are ready to assist. Please call the office phone number, 317-247-9739 and let us know and we’ll see you get assistance.


One last thing – we realize several our senior citizens still have their land line phones and no internet connection. They can’t enjoy our live stream. If you know of anyone like this, we would like to mail them a copy of the Sunday sermon. All they would need is a CD player. Call the office and let us know if you are aware of someone who would enjoy being connected in this manner.

Youth / CHildren Programming

While we're not currently able to gather in large groups during the 8 am, 9:15 am, or 11 am hours on Sunday mornings, we will be working hard to provide content online, as well as working to continue to offer high quality in-person/small group programming options for students and families when it makes sense or when it falls within the guidelines as laid out by state, local, and church leadership. The best way to stay up to date on specific programming changes/offerings is to join the text message or weekly email below.
