Willowdale Chapel is a nondenominational church founded in 1956. From our humble roots, we've grown to be a thriving body of 1,500 people. Today we are one church in two locations, with campuses in Kennett Square and Jennersville. We're passionate about Jesus and his Gospel, which offers the grace we all need every day. Whether they're longtime followers of Christ or just trying to figure it out for the first time, we love meeting people where they are and helping them grow in their faith.
We have all the core ministries that most churches have — children, youth and adult small groups — along with some "specialty" ministries that meet particular needs we sometimes face. Three of those — Celebrate Recovery, Re|engage (marriage) and Special Needs — offer distinctive help for some during the biggest challenges of their lives.
God intends to make all things new. That's why he sends us into the world with a gospel that touches—and begins to transform—all of life. Thus our Outreach Ministries are built on three pillars: Gospel Proclamation, Justice & Mercy, and Cultural Engagement. We organize around these key priorities to give full expression to God's love for the world.
Tuesday Mornings, 9:15-11:15 a.m., beginning January 25 for 12 weeks (Children’s Program available)
The Book of Isaiah, which alternates between promises of judgment and restoration, remind God’s people of the magnitude of humanity’s sin, the judgement that we all deserve, and how God displays his glory by saving sinners. Isaiah’s message ultimately anticipates the arrival of Jesus Christ, the servant-king whose death results in new life for all who trust in Him. God’s Word of infinite justice and all-encompassing grace continues to speak to us today.
But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings likes eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31
This group features live teaching as well as small group discussion.
Wednesday Evenings, 6:30-8:30 p.m., beginning January 12
Are you a women seeking God’s will on racial reconciliation? Trying to understand how we truly live into Jesus’s command to love one another as he has loved us? Are you willing to learn and consider other perspectives you may not have encountered before? Then come meet with us as we build friendships, discuss, pray, and engage with this challenging but urgent topic. As material, we will be starting in January with the PBS series: “The Black Church: This Is Our Story, This is Our Song,” hosted by Henry Louis Gates, Jr.
If you can’t make every session- that’s okay! Come when you can and as you are. Meeting in person is strongly encouraged, but we will be looking to add a hybrid option to join virtually, particularly in case of winter weather.
If you aren’t able to join the group, but have a heart for racial reconciliation, will you consider supporting us as a prayer warrior? For any questions about the group or interest in being a prayer warrior, please contact Wendy Thorngate, 610-235-1947, email@example.com.
Thursday Evenings, 6:30-8:30 p.m., beginning January 13, 10 weeks
Journey with us through the story of how God shepherds His newly-liberated children into an understanding of what their freedom means: lives consecrated for service to God and to one another. Revisit familiar scenes of the giving the the Ten Commandments, the idolatrous worship of a golden calf, and of the intricate details of the tabernacle. And with fresh perspective, ask what these stories teach God’s children today about how to live as those set free.
In every page of the Bible, learn to see Christ through the stories of his people. And discover how the God who created you and made a covenant with you will deliver you from death to life, for His name and renown.
Registration fee is $25/person for the semester for Isaiah and God of Freedom. If that is a hardship, please contact Carole Hoy at firstname.lastname@example.org for a discount code to waive the fee.
