When Christians Disagree

How do we handle ministry relationships that are stressed and strained? How do we express and resolve conflict with other Christians, and why this is so important for the church and our witness right now? *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.

How Luke Saved My Faith

Who was this Luke, anyway? Where did he get his material? What did he hope would happen as a result? And most to the point, why would we want to build our lives on an ancient work of literature that seems almost too good to be true.  *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 Way of Worship

This last year, we’ve all been forced to deconstruct our schedules. And now that we’re putting them back together, what role should church have? Do we need to set aside a day to take in a service, in person or online? And what about Sundays? Should they be any different from Saturdays? Pastor Bryan will examine those questions through a lens of worship this week. *Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the…

The Way of Honor

Respect, acceptance and appreciation are powerful forces. The prospect of a positive public opinion can motivate us to succeed. But it can also crush us when it’s not there. And it can push and pull us in all sorts of wrong directions. Join us as we search through Acts 5:12-42 to discover how we can navigate the push and pull of public opinion.

The Way of the Gospel

We talk a lot about sharing the Good News and evangelizing, but what does that actually look like? How can we do it in a way that is effective and also respectful? *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 Way of Healing

How can the church re-gain people’s attention and trust? In a post-Christian, post-pandemic world, the church will earn the right to be heard by bringing a positive, healing presence to people and society. *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 Way of Reconciliation

Conflict is one of the most normal human experiences. But is it possible that we can address conflict in ways that don’t end up breaking relationships as is so common? What did the first Christians have that enabled them to thrive as a community even when their members made hurtful mistakes? Luke sheds some light on that in Acts 6:1-7.

The Way of Togetherness

Life may be slowly returning to normal, but experts say that many of us still feel like we’re stuck, not living as well or as happily as we want. We’re stuck languishing. How will we find our way to “flourishing” as we emerge into the new normal? *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 Way of the Spirit

We’re all trying to figure out how to live in the new normal. But could we be missing something more important than plans and strategies? What was the power that transformed the first Jesus-followers and launched the church? Can we tap into it today? *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 Way of Discovery

Do you still think the same way you did when you were younger? Or have your thought processes and attitudes grown and matured as you have? In this sermon, Pastor Adam encourages us to approach life as learners, not experts. *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.

Devoted

So how do we explain the DEVOTION of the first Christians, their FAVORABILITY among the people, and the remarkable GROWTH of the early church? It’s Jesus! How devoted are we to Jesus? How central is Jesus to our lives and homes and church?  *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.

Why I Still Believe

With so many challenges facing the world and the church these days, including a global pandemic and racial injustice, how can we be optimistic about the future? A story from the early days of the church offers us three reasons to still believe!
