Small Groups & Sunday School

There are several opportunities to meet together in a small group setting.
 

Children

Children have the opportunity on Sunday mornings to attend Sunday School at 9:30 AM, and the Celebration Service at 10:45 AM.  Kids of all ages are encouraged to participate in the main service.  
 

Adults & Teens

All Adults & Teens
Sunday School meets in the Library Lounge inside the main entrance.  The format is laid back and allows for participation for those that would like to join the discussion.  You are welcome to bring your coffee, sit around the table, and delve into God’s Word.
 
 
Young Adults
We are still planning on getting the young adults small group back together, but a meeting date and time is not yet on the calendar.  Stay tuned!  It is a wonderful opportunity for thoughtful discussion, great fellowship, and spiritual growth.  E-mail Pastor John Gee for questions at PastorJohn@chicocma.com.
 
Women
There is a morning bible study that meets every other Tuesday at a home in Silverdale for prayer, bible study and fellowship.  We occasionally host events throughout the year, so check out the bulletin on Sunday mornings for current events.  Craft Nights are on the second Friday of the month down in the Women’s Ministry Room.  
 
Seniors
All Seniors are welcome to the Seniors Small Group!  They meet in the Chico Alliance Church Library Lounge on Thursdays from 10 AM to 11:30 AM.  They meet to:

1.  Share in corporate prayer for the church, church family, individuals, and personal needs. 2.  Study the Word of God; to ask questions and look for answers in His Word. 3.  Fellowship together.  Get to know each other, sharing the good and bad; and encourage and lift each other up.  Enjoy two luncheons during the year.

 

Prayer Opportunities

 

Prayer Chain

Prayer Chain with “One Call” is a prompt way to alert our Chico Alliance family members with one telephone call for a specific request for prayer. It can be personal and family and/or friend related. Prayer is an emergency 911 call to the Lord and only a whisper away, plus we never receive a busy signal-the Lord says, “Call and I will answer you.” If you attend Chico Alliance Church and would like to get the “One Calls” please contact the church office.
 

Sunday Evening Prayer

Every Sunday evening at 6 PM is set aside to gather together for prayer in the Prayer Room (located down the hallway that goes behind the sanctuary).
 
 

Missions & Outreach

There are several ways to be active throughout the year with Global Partnership and Local Reach.  
 

Global Partnership

Mission Trips

As a church, we have gone to three trips to Mexico in recent years. We have traveled down to the dorms of Mexico Caravan Ministries and built houses, helped in orphanages, and hopefully had our young and old(er) participants alike see clearly “God’s heart for the world… the presentation of His plan for worldwide missions [and, ultimately, been motivated] to take part in His global plan.” Visit Caravan Ministries  website and you will see why have loved partnering with this mission mobilizing organization and their wonderful staff.  There are no trips planned currently, but we would love to do an Alliance Envision trip in the future!
 

Mama Packs

We seek to be a church that has global reach. We are sending Mama Packs to West Africa for infants in need. You can drop these off in the front of the sanctuary before and after service or drop them by the office during the week! 
 
 

Great Commission Fund

If you hang out long enough at our church you will realize that we talk frequently about the Great Commission Fund.  That is the name attached to the denominations missions support fund.  Unlike many missions organizations who require their missionaries to raise their own support, The Alliance encourages all the churches to contribute to a special fund from which all our missions endeavors are funded. That way our missionaries can concentrate on their mission rather than be distracted with fund raising and concern about keeping their fund base up.  We find this an excellent way to free our missionaries.  We encourage our member to commit to a monthly contribution to this fund.

 
 

LOCAL REACH

There are many local programs that are making a difference and helping the hurting in Kitsap County.  As we transition into a church radically concerned with the community, we will aggressively pursue relationships in which we can love the community around us where they are. 

Through:  New Day Ministry 

We are collecting items for New Day Ministry in Kitsap County. New Day Ministry provides dinner, referral services, assistance, and offer spiritual 12 steps at no cost to low-income members of our community.  You can read more about their ministry at www.newdayministrywa.org  
 
Items we are focusing on in Fall 2019:
* Monetary donations
 
* Tents, tarps
* Blankets, sleeping bags
* Hats, socks, boots
* Coats (new or used), warm weather clothing

Through:  The Coffee Oasis

Coffee Oasis is one of the best ways to serve the hurting youth of this community. As we transition into a church radically concerned with the community, we will aggressively pursue relationships in which we can love the community around us where they are. If you are interested in being involved with this amazing community partner, please email Pastor John at PastorJohn@Chicocma.com or visit their website at thecoffeeoasis.com/get-involved
 

Harvest Festival

We have a Harvest Festival every year on October 31st, 5:30-8:00 PM.  It is held in our gym and is a safe place to spend time with friends and family.  Kids get a chance to play Bible-related games, win prizes and all are able to enjoy food and fun with us.  We also love the group of volunteers that help make this event possible.
 

Fellowship

Sunday Refreshments

We like to provide refreshments before and after the service – coffee, juice, snacks, cookies, fruit, etc.  One way you can get involved is sign up for a Sunday to provide snacks.   
 

Chuckwagon & Potlucks

We have a Chuckwagon or Potluck, normally on the 3rd Sunday of each month, September-June.  Guests are invited to eat with us for free, all other members are asked to give a donation on the Chuckwagon days to help with the food cost.  
 
To help:  
For both Potlucks and Chuckwagons we need help setting up and taking down tables, chairs, and red trays (each tray hold silverware, creamers, sugars, hot and cold cups for each table) and making coffee and punch before the morning service.  For Chuckwagons we also need kitchen help in preparing food, setting up warming trays, and cleaning dishes afterward.  
 

Potlucks:

We schedule potlucks for Missions conferences and other events.  For Potlucks, bring a main dish AND a side, salad, or dessert to share.
