Life-Changing Loyalty

Jonathan exhibits something in his relationship with David that is very rare in our society today. He is fiercely loyal to David as his friend. The impact of a loyal friend is immeasurable. Who is God calling you to be like a Jonathan to? *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.

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…

Tears and Resurrections in the Face of Tragic Loss

At one time or another, we all come face to face with a tragic loss. Whether it’s the loss of a job, the discovery of some disease or the suicide of a loved one, shock, confusion, anger and pain confront us in bewildering ways. Is it possible to experience real comfort when a tragedy leaves us feeling trapped and alone?

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. One of the toughest stories in the Bible has something to teach us about why relationships matter, and how to rekindle them when they’ve grown cold. *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.
