Welcome to the Armstrong Chapel Virtual Community.
In response to the need to practice physical distancing during the COVID-19 crisis, we are offering a variety of tools and materials to keep you connected to your church family and to help keep you spiritually uplifted and fulfilled. This is a new way to "do church" for many of us. We appreciate your grace and understanding as we live into these changes together. As always, reach out to us directly through phone or email if you need anything. Visit the Staff page for specific contact information.
Watch this page for new content and options as it becomes available. Also, connect with us through social media.
The birth of the church and the empowerment of God will be celebrated by Christians on May 31, 2020 – The Day of Pentecost. In a recent webinar, Professor Jack Levison of Perkins Theological Seminary and SMU (also the son-in law of our beloved, the late Barbara Pope) shared an engaging teaching series on the Holy Spirit. In it, Dr. Levison challenged us as Christians not to look for things to get back to normal but BETTER.
We will be using a devotional titled, 40 Days with the Holy Spirit. This book will be available to pick up in the Atrium entrance (or you could order a copy for your mobile device) and will allow you to use it as an interactive daily journal for the days into summer and for our need of the Holy Spirit. Watch for more information in email and on this page.
More from Jack Levison: Author Talks. One thing this unpredictable season in all of our lives is teaching us is that there is always a new way to do an old thing. Join us this week for faith-enriching conversations on new ways to pray, worship, and learn.
