The Way of Wisdom

As we look to the future, in a world that looks and feels markedly different than it did 3 years ago, What do we want to DO?  Who do we want to BE?  How do we want to LIVE?   We find skill for living well when we seek God and His Wisdom. *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.

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…

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 Knowing to Relationship

How do I have a relationship with God? How does God change me and our world? Real change flows out of a relationship with God marked by love. *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.

Losing Our Religion

Did Jesus overturn tables and drive out merchants because he was angry about people selling in the temple courts? Or was he confronting something even bigger? *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.

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…

Life is Hard

A centered heart is grateful, even when life is hard. Gratitude shapes our perspective and gives structure to our lives. In this season of life that continues to challenge us, we look to Psalm 107 for guidance in encouraging gratitude in our lives. *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.

Beyond Fear

In a time of fear and uncertainty, God offers us something even better than courage. *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.

Stuck in the Muck

If prayer is a space that God has given us to enjoy him and find purpose to life, what happens when prayer doesn’t work? Is it possible that we who struggle with prayer might find a happiness in God that would bring life to our inner selves and to those around us? Is there something God wants us to know about ourselves that could free us from the mundane, strengthen our souls in the face of difficulties and bring gladness…

A Tale of Two Kings

The world has changed, and we have new questions about things like work, childcare, friendship, and our own wellbeing. How can ancient truths and habits help us center ourselves in a world that often feels off-balance? The first step towards health and a heart centered on Jesus is honesty. *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…
