In the Bleak Midwinter

We all have expectations for how our days, our life, or Christmas will go. But what do we do when things turn out to be less than perfect? In this Christmas message for Advent 2020, Pastor Leah Knight Breton answers questions like, Is God still working in my imperfect and messy life? Is there any hope for Christmas 2020? Is there something to learn from the original Christmas story about God working in less-than-perfect circumstances? Christ’s Church is a strategic…

Song of Silence

How can I find comfort and joy in a season of isolation and stillness? Why is silence so uncomfortable? What opportunities does silence present? We find comfort and joy when we quiet ourselves long enough to hear a new song. Silence can be terrifying, but it can also be just what we need. What if silence is… an invitation?

Comfort and Joy

Building Gospel Bridges

There is a deep correlation between our relationship with God and our relationship with others. In this sermon from Nikki Toyama-Szeto, Executive Director of Christians for Social Action, we learn how working for justice is the “gospel bridge” that we need to build with our neighbors and a watching world. Justice and evangelism go hand in hand because today, people do not assume that God is good. Justice is the demonstration that our God is a good God. Christ’s Church…

A Different Kingdom

The political system in Jesus’ day was a mess. It was worse than a mess, it was horrific. And yet Jesus and his followers changed the world. How?… 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.

Serpents and Doves

How do I decide who to vote for? How can I have political conversations without blowing up my relationships? What does it mean to vote “like a Christian?” How do I get along with people I disagree with politically?

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…

Do Something Different

One of the last things most of us need during this season of disruption is another thing to add to our plates. Is there something different we can do that will energize and empower everything else we’re doing already? Luke is going to tell us a story about Jesus that will show us just that.

Stopped in Our Tracks

What’s one thing you’re doing now, that if you stopped doing it, it would change your life for the better? The proper response to disruption isn’t to fix it or escape it or get back to normal as quickly as possible. It’s to pull off the road and do business with God. 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.

Dual Citizenship

How do I balance my faith and politics? How do I handle politically-charged conversation? How can we keep politics from being so divisive? Consider how Jesus handled a politically-charged question in a way that amazed every one and pointed us all in a better direction.

Divine Encounter

Is God with us when things go wrong in our life? Can I really hope to encounter Him? Does God fix my problems when I pray? If you ask these kinds of questions, know this: It’s often at our point of need or pain that God wants to meet us and do something new!
