04.09.20 - Coronavirus (COVID-19) Communication

On Thursday, Jesus spent his last day with his disciples. The phrase we see here is Remember Me.

1 Corinthians 11:23-26
For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body, which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way also he took the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.” For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes.

Jesus was the final sacrifice, the final Passover Lamb because He permanently could take away the sins of those who trust in Him. May we live in a manner that every single day, we remember Jesus.

Good Friday Service - Friday, April 10, 6:30 PM

The Good Friday Service is a time of worship and a remembrance of Christ's journey to the Cross. We will be taking communion together, so please try to have either grape juice and bread or water and crackers on hand so that you may share in communion during this service. 

Join us online.

On this Wednesday, think of the word preparation. Let’s look at an act of extravagant worship.

Matthew 26:12-13
In pouring this ointment on my body, she has done it to prepare me for burial. Truly, I say to you, wherever this gospel is proclaimed in the whole world, what she has done will also be told in memory of her.”

Jesus expects the same from us. He gave himself for us. This Easter season, how can we respond to Jesus?


04.07.20 - Coronavirus (COVID-19) Communication

On Tuesday of Holy Week, Jesus was back in the temple.

Matthew 23:25-26
Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you clean the outside of the cup and the plate, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. You blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and the plate, that the outside also may be clean.

Jesus is intolerant of hypocrites because your eternity is so serious - don’t play games. First, you must be cleansed internally when you trust in Jesus as your Lord and Savior. And when we’re clean internally, then we can live out the life that God calls us to. May we live in a way that the world says, “whatever you have, I want it.”


04.06.20 - Coronavirus (COVID-19) Communication

This week we’re going to take a Journey to the Cross together.

Matthew 21:12-14
And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all who sold and bought in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold pigeons. He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you make it a den of robbers.”And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple, and he healed them.

Jesus is passionate today that our hearts be clean before him. And the love of Jesus always goes with that – we can come to him with any pain that we have, and He meets us there.


04.04.20 - Coronavirus (COVID-19) Communication

We’ll continue this weekend in 1 Corinthians 15. This week we’ll look at the significance of the resurrection - when we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, we are celebrating our future resurrection as well. 

Join us online tonight at 6:00 PM or tomorrow at 9:00 and 10:45 AM!


04.03.20 - Coronavirus (COVID-19) Communication

Abraham did not weaken in his faith, even though he knew things were out of his control. We pray that we will grow strong in our faith, and always give glory to God.

Enjoy this beautiful day!

We stand in Christ – he is the one working all things out in our lives. The peace of God comes through Jesus Christ our Lord.

I love you, O Lord, my strength.
The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer,
    my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge,

I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised,

    and I am saved from my enemies.


03.28.20 - Coronavirus (COVID-19) Communication

This weekend we’ll be looking at 1 Corinthians 15 - the good news of Jesus – his person, his words his works. In Jesus, we stand firm.

Psalm 18:1-3
I love you, O Lord, my strength.
The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer,
    my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge,
    my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. 
I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised,

    and I am saved from my enemies.


03.27.20 - Coronavirus (COVID-19) Communication

We challenge you to memorize this passage with your family!

Psalm 18:1-3
I love you, O Lord, my strength.
The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer,
    my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge,
    my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. 
I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised,

    and I am saved from my enemies.

We’ll see you online this weekend!

John 17:21

That they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me.

It’s the truth of God’s Word that continues to unite us through the working of the Holy Spirit as the body of Christ.


03.25.20 - Coronavirus (COVID-19) Communication

Psalm 62:5-8

Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; He is my fortress, I will not be shaken. My salvation and my honor depend on God; He is my mighty rock, my refuge. Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.

We can find rest in God alone. In him, we will not be shaken.

Join us for prayer tonight at 6:30 PM.


03.24.20 - Coronavirus (COVID-19) Communication

We are in a day and age where there are so many unknowns. But we don’t trust in the unknowns. We don’t trust in an unknown God. We trust in the one true God, who is sovereign over all of our unknowns.

Hey Bible Chapel Family, I want to give you an update on our services this weekend; but first, let's consider a passage from God's Word.

We will be online across all our campuses again this coming weekend—March 21/22, 2020. Watch via The Bible Chapel Facebook Page or at biblechapel.org.

Please join me on Facebook every day this week at 12:15 p.m. for encouragement from God’s Word. Remember Exodus 14:14—The Lord is fighting for us. You need only to remain still. See you tomorrow.


03.13.20 - Coronavirus (COVID-19) Communication

Hello Bible Chapel Family. I want to take a moment to address what I’m sure is already at the forefront of your mind, the global spread of the COVID-19 virus. 

And in these changing times—aren’t you thankful—that we serve a God who never changes. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. His Word is settled forever in heaven. He is the One who delivers confidence, courage, and peace into the depths of our souls. The prophet Isaiah lived during some unsettling times—but listen to what he wrote:

You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.  - Isaiah 26:3  

Prayerfully, the Leadership of The Bible Chapel has decided to move our services to online-only this weekend, March 14 and 15. We invite you to join us at biblechapel.org as we continue to worship our awesome God through songs, prayer, and a message from His word. We will broadcast live on Saturday at 6:00 p.m., and Sunday at 9:00 and 10:45 a.m.

As a multigenerational church, we believe this is the best decision for our congregation. We are thankful that although we may not be able to meet in person, technology allows us to continue to worship this weekend online.

We encourage you to consider giving your offering gift online here. We also have a text to give option, text “TBC” to 73256.

All Ministry events at The Bible Chapel are canceled beginning today, March 13, 2020 through Friday, March 20, 2020.

Regarding the Relevant Parenting Conference scheduled for Saturday, March 21, we're excited to share that in lieu of a physical conference at the South Hills Campus, we will now hold the conference online through LIVE streaming. For those registered, Dave DiDonato and his team will communicate instructions for joining the conference digitally next Saturday including receiving the resource packet included with the conference.

The Bible Chapel is staying up-to-date with the progress of the COVID-19 virus around the world. As of today, there are no known cases in Pittsburgh – including Allegheny, Washington, and Westmoreland counties. 

To help provide a safe environment for all those at The Bible Chapel, we have taken the following actions:

  • We have suspended our Meet and Greet time during our weekend services so that people are not at risk to shake hands out of habit.
  • We have increased our regular and thorough cleaning routine, focusing on touchpoints like door handles, railings, and light switches.
  • Upcoming International trips to Thailand (Team Trip, March 2020) and Kenya (Vision Trip, March 2020) have been canceled. All future trips will be carefully monitored. 
  • Offering: Beginning this weekend, we will not pass the offering bags. There are donation receptacles located at each entrance. We also encourage you to consider giving your offering gift online here.
  • Communion: Temporarily, we are adjusting our Communion distribution process across all campuses.

If you are exhibiting any symptoms of the COVID-19 virus or the general flu, one of the recommendations of the Center for Disease Control is to avoid contact with large groups. Please join us for church online if you are sick. 

Additional information/resources:

  • CDC Resources
  • As with any normal flu season, follow these guidelines for keeping yourself and others healthy:
  • Wash your hands regularly with soap and water (20 seconds). If soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Cough or sneeze in a disposable Kleenex
  • Eat healthy and drink lots of fluids
  • Do not go to work, school, or church if you are sick 

Please join TBC Leadership as we pray for discernment during this time. As always we trust God for his protection.

In Christ,
