BLESS

God’s way of reaching and restoring the world has always been through blessing. This summer we will look at five missional practices, which make up the acronym BLESS, as a way to participate in the strategy God gave Abraham to reach the world. “And I will bless you…and you will be a blessing” (Genesis 12:2). As we engage these practices daily, we partner with God’s Spirit to bless those who do not know him.

* Begin With Prayer
* Listen With Care
* Eat Together
* Serve with Love
* Share your Story

I AM...Jesus is His Own Words

We will be exploring five of Jesus’ “I am” statements:

“I am the good shepherd.”  
“I am the light of the world.”
“I am the true vine”
“I am the bread of life”
“I am the resurrection and the life.”

We will be exploring what this teaches us about the character of God.
How does Jesus meet our deepest needs?
How are we shaped by Jesus’ own words?

    Living Forward: getting God's perspective!

    This spring, as we walk together into an exciting new chapter in the life of Christ Church, our focus will be on getting God’s perspective. We’re calling it “Living Forward!”
    On April 23, we begin a three-part mini-series by Pastor Lyle Mook called “It’s Not Heaven Yet!”
    Sometimes we need a new perspective! We hope you’ll join us as we ask some big and honest questions:
    _ “Why is life so hard?” 
    _ “What is a Life Worth Living?” 
    _ “What does it look like to have Hope?

    The Cross: Why Understanding Jesus' Death Changes Everything

    “Jesus died for us on the cross.” Do we really understand all that this means? The cross of Christ is central to everything in the world! In this season of Lent (40 days + Sundays leading to Easter) we will take an in depth look at the crucifixion and the Biblical teachings that unfold its meaning for our lives.

    What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is FOR us, who can be against us?  (Romans 8:31)

    Ruth: God's Unlikely Love Story

    Everybody loves a love story! Ruth, in our English Bibles, follows the time of the Judges, when “Everyone did what was right in his own eyes.” It’s a love story that looks very ordinary at first: an older widow, a younger widow, and a farmer. But their lives are woven into the fabric of God’s Unlikely Love Story: redemption for the whole world!

    Our February sermon series is a Story we need to hear again today as God’s ordinary disciples, seeking to live faithfully in a chaotic world!

    Surprise! Jonah and the surprising grace of God

    There is a short Old Testament parable-like book that tells the story of a reluctant prophet named Jonah. It’s filled with surprises! It beautifully depicts God’s Good News for the world - and how it will be made known. It challenges our understanding of the Mission of God’s people. We urgently need to hear and respond to its message in our day!

    Our January sermon series will unwrap God’s surprises in this powerful story that Jesus called “the sign of Jonah.”
