A Boomer and a Millenial Go for a Walk

Every generation has its unique concerns and hopes for the future. These days, generational tension continues to intensify, particularly between Boomers and Millennials. What if it didn’t need to be this way? What if generations could serve each other and serve the world together? The book of 2 Kings gives us a beautiful picture of generational succession between Elijah and Elisha and how we can reclaim the ability to relate well with each other across generations. *Christ’s Church is a…

A Tale of Two Brothers

As we emerge from a global pandemic, many of us are finding that a year of social distancing has left us feeling…. socially distant.

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 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.

On Paying Attention

How can I manage all the online voices competing for my attention? How can fasting help me pay attention to God? Can the Bible really make a positive difference in my life? In this third episode of our Fast Forward teaching series, Pastor Bryan helps us gain a stronger understanding of the effects the constant infoglut of our news feeds and social media has on our spiritual lives. It’s time to pay more attention to where we’re paying attention. *Christ’s…

The Promises, Practices and People of God

We are all made for relational connection, but are feeling more lonely and disconnected than ever.

Serpents and Doves
