Did you know that the Oceana Chapel has a thriving women’s group that meets every Thursday from 9:30-11am??

Our “Donuts and Discussion” women’s group strives to encourage active duty women, military spouses and their families to grow their faith. Our group is full of women from many walks of life and backgrounds. All with the desire to know Jesus more and do life with one another.

Come join us as we are studying the book, “Tour of Duty, Preparing our hearts for deployment”. Whether going through a deployment now or one to come, this group and study will help you navigate the often crazy life of a military wife.

Donuts and coffee provided, childcare available.

As Chaplains we often lead worship and counsel those in need of our services! But how often do you get to lead a team of young Marines to victory in a dodge ball tournament? Chaplain Crandall, spent the early hours of Friday morning doing just this! Following the dodge ball tournament, Chaplain Crandall and LTC Johnston (MARDET DAM NECK CO), was able to sit down with the Marines and teach them aspects of the Core Values of Naval Services!

Greetings Chapel Family! All services for Damneck and Oceana will continue on their normal schedule this weekend.

Following the storm, our chapels have both faired well. We lost one beautiful tree directly behind the Chapel of the Good Shepherd on Oceana and there are multiple large limbs down, but your chapel team is hard at work to ensure services continue as planned. Be sure to thank them when you see them!

It was interesting to see the root ball of the toppled tree. Despite its beauty above the surface, its roots we’re not very deep. When the winds blew and the rains came it’s not what was above the surface that mattered, but the depth (or lack) of its roots that led to its demise. I pray you will plug in to a service this weekend that will deepen your roots!

In His hands,
Chaplain David Jones

What an event!! Parents Night Out was a huge success!! We had 67 kids participate last night.

So great to give some moms and dads an opportunity to be kid free for a few hours. The kids had a blast eating pizza, bouncing, crafting, drawing and so much more!

One of my absolute favorite parts of Sunday morning service is seeing how much the little ones know about God and how much they love him too!💛
Will there be Mass during the shutdown ?
