- Think about someone you know who began to follow Jesus but now is not. What happened?

- How can you bear more fruit by following Jesus?

Prodigal Prayer Group
Thursday, October 13, 7:00 p.m.
Chelten Resource Room
One of the most heartbreaking and challenging experiences Christian parents can face, is to see their adult child or children reject the values of their parents; and turn their back on the faith they once embraced. One of our members had this experience and started the Prodigal Prayer meeting for like-minded parents to meet and pray regularly for our prodigals. Please come and join us!
The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:9) KJV

Baptism declares that you are a follower of Jesus Christ. It’s the next step after salvation through repentance and faith and is an important foundation for the Christian life. If you’ve put your trust in Jesus’ death and resurrection and are ready to go public with that confession—showing the world that you love, trust, and have put your hope in Christ—we invite you to be baptized here at Chelten on Sunday, October 30.
“Going under the water was a burial of your old life; coming up out of it was a resurrection, God raising you from the dead as he did Christ. When you were stuck in your old sin-dead life, you were incapable of responding to God. God brought you alive—right along with Christ! Think of it! All sins forgiven, the slate wiped clean, that old arrest warrant canceled and nailed to Christ’s cross.” Colossians 2:12-14 MSG
Please sign up at the Welcome Center by October 16.
Interested in joining Chelten as a member?
For those who are followers of Jesus, baptized, and have attended a new membership class, applications are due to the main office by October 16.

Hey men, our 2022-23 Men’s Breakfast speaking series is right around the corner and we can’t wait for it to begin. Here’s what you can expect: a hearty breakfast catered by Dreshertown Market, connecting with old and new friends, and listening to a message that will help you grow in your faith. Our first breakfast is on Saturday, October 15 at 7:30 a.m. in Fellowship Hall. Hope to see you there
Message: The Ever Presence of God
Speaker: Tim Ebner
Tim Ebner did not grow up in a Christian home and life was a bumpy road for him as a kid. At age 18 Tim came to Christ in a “big way.” He started his own auto repair shop, Ebner’s Auto, in Ambler and ran it for 28 years before a fire tragically ended that chapter of his life. Tim will be speaking on his path to redemption and how he has maintained a strong faith through tragedy.
