Pray in the Crux of the Moment

What do we do in times of stress, crisis, even opportunity? Does prayer really make a difference? Isn’t prayer just religious superstition? Whether it be in the face of national tragedy or a profound personal need, in the crux of the moment where a Jesus type of miracle is needed, we must pray as Jesus did. *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…

On Becoming Butterflies

Whatever else people might want to say about Jesus, the one thing everybody seems to agree on, is that he lived a good and beautiful life. But as remarkable as Jesus’ life was, the more remarkable thing might be that he expected his followers to live equally good and beautiful lives. How is that possible? *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…

Deeper

Broken relationships can result in broken insides too. Can the same be true for someone’s relationship with God? If there was something to do to sustain it when circumstances are bad and the positive feelings are gone, what could we do? Psalm 130 may just hold the answer.

From Status to Service

We have all been through change, and while looking at the world around us we often think change is needed. But why? Why do we feel the need for change? And how do we go about working for change? However we feel about Jesus, he changed the world. Jesus was a changemaker. What can we learn from Jesus about bringing about good change that lasts? *Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the…

Body & Soul

Are we physical beings having a spiritual experience, or spiritual beings having a physical experience? What happens to us after we die? What does God say about sex? How do we care for our souls? We live well when we care for our bodies and our souls, because we need both to be fully human. *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…

Private Lives

Sinkholes occur when underground streams drain away during seasons of drought, causing the ground at the surface to lose its underlying support.  Suddenly everything simply caves in. THIS week we’d like to turn our attention to the COMPETING DEMANDS of public and private life.  Because the sinkhole syndrome warns us that if we don’t get this RHYTHM right, the lives and homes and careers and ministries we’re building are in danger of collapse.   *Christ’s Church is a strategic partner…

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…

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 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.

Discovering Life

When it comes to solving problems, we often get stuck in predictable patterns of thinking and acting.  But sometimes the only way to solve a problem is to step outside those familiar patterns. Disruption can prompt us to look and listen for answers in new ways, and new places. Jesus is waiting for us outside the box, in that uncomfortable place, and he can lead us to new and better things.   Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace…

Disrupter-In-Chief

Jesus couldn’t seem to resist shaking things up – like when he returned to his hometown for a visit. Why is disruption so pivotal, and how can it… 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.
