Ken Watson, Facilitator


We've all had an "aha moment" in our lives, an insight that changes everything.  With everyday examples and testimonials, this study draws on scripture to reveal how 3 elements - - - awakening, honesty, action - can produce the same kind of "aha" in our spiritual lives.  Based on the gripping story  of "The Prodigal Son", this study will encourage us to look at our own relationships with those around us as well as with Christ.


Awakening to the reality of our true spiritual condition, we see ourselves and our need for a Savior with renewed honesty.  This realization leads to action, obeying God's commands and following the example set by Christ.  As we see in the transformation of the prodigal son, the result is a life-changing, destiny-altering collision - - - an "Aha" moment that changes everything and leads us home to our loving Father!

Welcome to Mountain Chapel!

Relationships matter to God. The people at Mountain Chapel take this truth very seriously. Whether it’s in worship services, Bible studies or softball games, nothing is more important than growing relationships with God and with others. Relaxed, comfortable, open, loving…words that often describe the best of relationships, are words that are often used to describe life at Mountain Chapel.

I hope you will enjoy looking at the Mountain Chapel site. If you have any questions or cannot find what you need, please feel free to contact the church. If you have a need for prayer, we would love to pray for you and with you. Call the church office and ask for me or one of the other staff members, and we will pray for you immediately.

May God bless you and be real to you in the days ahead.

In Christ,
Tom Parrish
