Grow groups form disciples who view themselves and the world through the lens of Scripture and traditions of the Church.  They encourage everyone to live to make a difference in our homes, schools, jobs, and relationships.

Join a Grow Group

Faith grows best when spurred on by others. Chapelwood has groups for adults of every age and stage of faith. We have 11 groups on Sunday morning at 9:45 am and several others throughout the week including 2 women's studies and a rotation of
short-term groups. 

For more information on any of our adult grow opportunities contact Rhonda Taylor, Director of Adult Formation

Rhonda Taylor
Director of Adult Discipleship


Three years ago, Chapelwood set out to invest in our youth and children so that they could develop the kind of faith that lasts into adulthood.  We have taken seriously the findings of the National Study of Youth and Religion and you will find its influence in every aspect of our church life.

Youth Ministry Director
Anthony Livoti

Anthony holds a degree in Biblical Literature and Youth Ministry from Indiana Wesleyan University, and will graduate with a Master’s of Divinity from Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary.  Anthony has more than 10 years leading youth ministry in a variety of settings in three different states.  In addition to all of this Anthony is a candidate for ordained ministry as a Deacon in the United Methodist Church.

Anthony grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In talking with Anthony you quickly learn about where he grew up, "One thing that’s important to know about Wisconsin is it has this “little” season called winter. It lasts from about November to April.” Anthony is clear with everyone that he will not miss winter in the slightest. There is one thing he will miss, "cheese curds."

For the last two years Anthony has been a Masters of Divinity student at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary in Evanston, Il.  Anthony has completed all of his course work except two independent studies and his field education internship.  Anthony will be using Chapelwood United Methodist Church as his field education placement (similar to Myra Jones’ plan for this next year).  While in seminary Anthony has been working part time as the Director of Youth Ministries at First United Methodist Church of Arlington Heights outside of Chicago. 


During the school year, we meet on Wednesday nights at 6:30-8pm for dinner and Bible study. Please bring your Bible and a friend. Please check our monthly calendar for any changes to our Midweek schedule. Parents are encouraged to sign up to provide dinner or attend as a volunteer.

We meet 3-4 times per month on Sunday evenings at 5pm.  Sunday nights rotate between worship with a lesson and small groups;  a meal with games and discussion groups; and service projects.
