Learning to Preserve

As we grow as followers of Jesus Christ, John reminds us that in this life we will have trouble!

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” – John 16:33

Let’s equip our families to preserve – but not according to the world’s standards, according to the way the Bible teaches us! Family Summer Olympics will be a fun way to teach your whole family about perseverance and how to keep going even while facing difficulties.


Volunteer at Family Summer Olympics and make this a fun night out for young families in our community. Wether this is your first time or hundredth time serving, there is a team for you to join! Join A Team.


A Growing Biblical Community

At Chesapeake, we believe involvement is connection. As you participate in an event or serve in one of our ministries, you’ll naturally meet new people and build relationships. And once you start making connections, Chesapeake begins to feel like home and a place where you and your family can do life as together we grow as fully devoted followers of Jesus!

And remember, Family Summer Olympics is an easy invitation. We all know someone who could benefit from a fun night out and we can show them a beautiful picture of what being part of a Biblical Community can look like for them and their family.
