Christmas Eve 2017 – Peace in the Darkness

2017 was a dark year for many, and the shepherds who discovered baby Jesus were going through their own dark time as well. God gives us a way to find peace in these times–to rise above our circumstances and experience the well-being he wants for us even when nothing else around us is well.

Peace in the Imperfect

We all face those imperfect, less-than-ideal, frustrating setbacks that seem to be random and unexplainable. We know that they will come, but it still surprises us when they do. God gives us a way to find peace through perspective in moments like these as he taught Mary after she was forced to lay baby Jesus where animals rested.

Peace in the Unexpected

We find peace in the unexpected when we say “Yes” to God’s greater story for our lives and the world. *Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the teaching of Pastor Bryan Wilkerson and the Grace Chapel Teaching Team.

Peace in the Heartache

We experience peace in our heartache when we bring THAT (the world as it will be) into THIS (the world as it is). *Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the teaching of Pastor Bryan Wilkerson and the Grace Chapel Teaching Team.

Peace in the Tumult

We find peace in the tumult when we invite the Prince of Peace to rule our hearts, our homes, and our world. *Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the teaching of Pastor Bryan Wilkerson and the Grace Chapel Teaching Team.

The Christian life is a marathon, not a sprint. How do we keep going for the long haul, and when times get tough? *Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the teaching of Pastor Bryan Wilkerson and the Grace Chapel Teaching Team.

Sharing God’s Heart

Is it possible our gospel has a hole in it? What does God expect of me when it comes to social justice?

When it Feels Like God Doesn’t Care

1 Kings 19. Every believer comes to a place in their lives where they feel disconnected with God.
