In times of swirling change and uncertainty, what do you hold onto? What are the beliefs that are your bedrock, the convictions that give you clarity, the principles that guide your practice, no matter what comes your way? In other words, what’s your “Credo” (Latin for “This I believe”)? For millennia now, the followers of Jesus have found that foundation in a statement known as the Apostles’ Creed. You may have heard that creed or recited it yourself. Whether familiar or foreign, this series will shine some fresh light on these ancient words and help you see why they couldn’t be more current for any of us wanting to live the best life possible today.

Few realities so define our lives for good or ill as when we make, keep or break a Covenant. The best things in life can come from those circles of commitment.

In this fascinating sermon series, we’ll be looking at seven such circles that God invites people into in order to bless us and make our lives a blessing to others. We’ll also learn why Jesus and His kingdom are the fulfillment of the great promises of history and the hope of the human heart.

Do you remember what it felt like when you were dating? How it seemed there wasn’t anything the two of you couldn’t talk about? Or the belief that together you could do anything? When did things change? When did love and marriage get so hard?

Join us for a two-part series exploring what God has to say about marriage and identifying the key components to a thriving relationship. In addition to encouraging couples in any life stage, it will give everyone, young and old, widowed or single, a biblical vision for love and marriage. This is not a step by step series on ”how to have a healthy marriage,” but it is a fresh look at familiar passages and what they tell us about marriage.

After a rollercoaster year and 10 months into the pandemic, many are wondering, what will life be like in 2021?

We are weary of merely surviving and long for a new season. We want a fresh start. A new beginning. We're asking "Where do we go from here?"

Scripture gives us a rich vision of a flourishing and thriving life for people - rooted in God's promises to those who faithfully follow His Word. Throughout this series, we will hear God’s plan for His people to remain rooted in His love and promises, flourish in God’s Kingdom and world, and thrive in His plan and purposes.

What drew people to Jesus? What was it that the wisemen sought? Why did thousands gather to hear Him on a mountainside? Why do people still seek Him today?

What can we learn from how Jesus interacted with others? And how does that impact how we are to be the Church?

Join us as Rev. Tara Beth Leach explores these questions and wrestles with the idea that we are to be His Radiant Church.

There is a road that winds through this world and every one of us walks it. Along the way, we meet calamities, encounter characters, and make choices that are life-changing for us and for others. Jesus paints a picture of this journey in one of His most famous parables.

You are invited to walk with us as we unpack the deep meaning and transforming possibilities of life along The Jericho Road.

In our ever-changing world we need something we can hold on to. In desperate days with screaming headlines and polarizing points of view, we need Someone to speak to our soul. In a season overshadowed by social unrest, social distance and social discord, we need light to shine through the shade. God’s Word, His timeless truth, and steady love illuminates the darkness.

We were created to journey through life together. In this season of social distancing, it’s not just a virus that can separate us but our attitudes and attributes. You and I can just go along, hoping that somehow everything works out. Or we can begin to set our course right now on the ancient wisdom from the book of Philippians. Join us as we explore what it truly means to be the Church and live LIFE TOGETHER.

Somebody once observed: “Life is what happens when you’ve made other plans.” That’s true, isn’t it? Think how many times you’ve set your expectations on one thing and then found life delivering something else. The relationship, the marriage, the career path, the child, the project, the dream…didn’t turn out like you expected. Amidst all of the plotlines we plan for ourselves, God so often weaves a storyline that is dramatically different but actually better than anything we might have designed. In this study of the biblical book of Ruth, you will be reminded that it is in the UNEXPECTED moments of life that we frequently meet God’s greatest grace.

The last words people speak before dying are precious gifts. What pours out in those last breaths often reveals a person's true character and what they long for others to know. This is doubly so with Jesus. The seven last statements He makes from the cross not only tell us more about His remarkable character, they also reveal a pathway for us to find life abundant and eternal. Even in His dying, Jesus shows us how to really live.

The Bible talks about worship as if it were better than play, more fulfilling than a fabulous meal and greater than any other human pursuit. How many of us actually experience worship in this way? Have we asked ourselves “why not?” This provocative new series will help you understand what may have been blocking you and what can truly help you enter more fully into an experience so marvelous that people in heaven are thrilled to do it forever.

Again and again, we pass through periods where the circumstances of our lives invite us to decide whether we will remain just the way we are or take a leap of faith that will bring us closer to God and the people around us. What is the season YOU are in right now and what will you do with it? Join us for this provocative series as we examine four significant Seasons of the Soul and all the potential they hold for leading us to an even greater life.

Most of us live with a firm sense that certain things are “Impossible.” We might say, “This world can’t be fixed,” “I’ll never know God” or “This relationship is broken forever.” What do you fear will never be renewed? Christmas challenges our defeatist attitudes. It reminds us that with the advent of a baby born into a manger, all things will one day be made new; all things are possible. Scriptures teach that one day God will reorder and redeem this world and that all our God-shaped hopes will one day emerge from the shadows of impossibility into the light of eternal joy. Join us this December as we consider all the possibilities Jesus came to bring and the difference that makes in the world.

This fall, we will challenge ourselves to slow down and experience Sabbath in a new way. We live in a world that tells us to "Do," but we worship a God that calls us to "Be." When we force ourselves to stop and be present to the world around us we allow space for God to draw us into His purposes.

Few virtues matter as much to the quality of our lives or our influence on others as courage. Courage helps us keep our identity and integrity when we’re tempted to compromise or cave. Courage enables us to overcome the worries that weary us. Courage fuels us to face our problems and rise to our potential. Nowhere is the practice and power of courage painted more clearly than in the biblical book of Daniel. Join us for this remarkable series as we learn where we can find the capacity to truly live with a “Lionheart” amid the roaring forces of life today.

In almost every important area of life, becoming more successful involves making a 'shift'.

You learn to shift your weight from one foot to the other and your athletic performance improves dramatically. You shift your focus from being known by others to knowing them and your relationships improve remarkably. You shift your investments from one asset class to another and your net worth grows significantly.

Because He made us, God gets this. He understands the essential shifts human beings need to make in order to live into life’s full potential. Do we? What are those transitions? How do we go about making them? Join us for this provocative series as the Parables of Jesus reveal the crucial changes that lead to a greater life.

No other resource has influenced human history like the Bible. For centuries, the themes found in Scripture have found their way into the narratives of life. Whether it’s the struggle of good vs. evil, the pursuit of justice or the love of a Savior, these themes find their way into our best stories. In our modern world, movies and films often retell these biblical themes, whether overtly faith-based or not, movies can help illustrate biblical truth.

A Vision For Becoming a Devoted Community: (Acts 2 remix)
They devoted themselves to the Scriptures, to genuine community, to gathering around tables, and to prayer. God was powerfully moving through their generous service. Their friends, families, and communities noticed their authentic worship and life-changing love. And God deepened and grew HIS church every day.

Throughout time there have been groups of people who have gone unseen and unnoticed. Human history includes the journey of millions who faced significant challenges to the use of their gifts and the voice God gave them. Despite a lack of positional authority, and in the face of difficult circumstances, they found ways to use their influence to do great things in this world.

The Bible is full of stories about such people who took considerable risks to lead boldly in their time. This series will focus on how some of these biblical figures used their influence to advance God’s purposes. We will also look at who the “Hidden Figures” might be in our lives today and what they can teach us about how to lead with wisdom, strength and God's bold vision for justice and mercy in our world.

The greatest transformations in life come about through our relationships with others. From our very first breath to our final days, it is our relationships that help shape who we are, how we live and how we experience the world. Our reaction to family, friends, colleagues, spouses and even strangers ultimately serves as a reflection of our connection to God. Fostering the right relational chemistry is challenging but essential work. Getting relationships right honors God. This series will provide an overview of three key elements that all healthy relationships share.

The greatest danger to our soul, our relationships, and the best life for which we long is distraction. The risk is not that we’ll never see what matters, but that we will lose sight of it. We chase after money, accolades, success in academics, work and beyond. As we strive to achieve, stress and disillusionment become the norm and we often lament the frenetic pace of life, and our inability to draw closer to God. Distracted by life’s many “shiny objects” we’ll spend our time, energies and resources on little things and miss the Big Things of life — God, freedom and an influence on others that truly matters. In this series, we’ll unpack this seductive syndrome and discover some practices that can help us move from distraction to devotion.

"The Blacklist" is a study of the villains in the Easter narrative. Why did they make the choices they made? What can we learn from studying their profiles? What similarities do we have with them? What can we learn from them so that our lives reflect the light of Christ? Lent is historically a period when we reflect on our sin, our darkness, our separation from God. Examining these profiles will give each of us the opportunity for inner dialogue on what limits us from being close to God. The figures we will explore are the Pharisees, Caiaphas, Herod, Peter, Judas, Pilate, the crowd and soldiers at the Cross.

We are joining together with hundreds of Chicago-area churches in a national conversation to explore the basic questions people have about God and faith. Questions such as: Does life have a purpose?; Is there a God?; Why does God allow pain and suffering?; Is Christianity too narrow?; Is Jesus really God?; Is the Bible reliable?; and Can I know God personally? Through compelling sermons and small group experiences, Christ Church will help bring these collective thoughts together in an honest, purposeful way. This is a great opportunity for you to invite your friends and family who share these same deep questions. Come and Explore God with us.

Take Root

Join us as we explore what it means to ROOT our lives in Christ for the sake of others. For five weeks we traveled together through the remarkable life of Abraham, to discover what it takes to GROW deep roots of faith and how ultimately, those roots hold us firm as we EXTEND the branches of our lives to meet the needs of others. Are you ready to explore true growth and transformation? Are you ready to Take Root?

All of us are willing to follow God — up to a point. We’ll go to church, even if it doesn’t always thrill us. We’ll strive to be good people, even if it takes a stretch. We’ll try to understand God’s purposes, even if they confuse us. But there is a limit to this. There are just certain places, or people, or ways of thinking and doing to which we will not go. Even if God audibly said to us, “I want you to go there,” we’d frankly respond: “No, God. NOT THAT!” The prophet, Jonah, was a person like us, and the story of what God did with this reluctant soul demonstrates the breakthroughs some of us need to move to the next level of faith, character and influence.

“The Other Six: Extending Your Everyday Influence” Sermon Series
All around us every day are people who matter to God. We work with them, eat with them, play with them, and fight with them. But are we truly helping them? How many of these people will be closer to God and to fulfilling the purpose for which they were made, because YOU were in their life? You can be someone who helps brings forth life-changing blessings in the lives of others. In this series, you’ll gain vision and practical ideas for being a person of profound everyday influence. Remember, it’s not mainly about how you live on Sundays. It’s all about the way you choose to live “The Other Six.”

Rev. Eric Camfield, leads the sermon series at our Downers Grove location called “The Way: Life with God, Self and Others.” This poignant series is intended to help us think more intentionally about our faith and where each interaction we have can take us. He touches on ways to walk with God in our faith journey and in our relationships with others, and address living as an attractive witness and taking intentional action.

Finding Our Way

A common theme today is that life feels overwhelming and busy. We feel like we must do it all so, we run nonstop through our obligations at work, school, church, home and beyond. In The Fourth Commandment God actually demands that we stop and rest yet this is the one command we are often rewarded for breaking. How can we make keeping the Sabbath a regular part of our lives? In honoring this deep and rich practice, we find God’s answer to our desires for control, striving, and success. We are provided with rest and the gift of presence. We are reminded that the world is God’s creation and under His control and while we act like “human doings” we are above all else, “human beings.” So, press pause on the harried grind through life and join us for this four-week series where we explore God’s sabbath requirement and the gift of deep restoration and peace that it provides.

This special message from Senior Pastor Dan Meyer comes in response to a recent application of our baptismal policy which brought up a need for further discussion. Our Board of Elders has now begun a discernment process to further clarify what our baptismal policy going forward shall be. If you’d like to know more about our current policy, please click on "Redemptive Community Policy" below. If you’d like to learn more about the biblical and theological foundations behind this policy, you may enjoy re-visiting our THIRD WAY sermon series (provided below).

The Third Way

Same sex marriage. Transgender celebrities. LGBT rights. As Bob Dylan once sang: “The times, they are a-changin’.” As followers of Jesus Christ, we know that our identity is more than a matter of gender and that we are called to be people of radical love. At the same time, there seems to be so much in the Bible that lays down firm guidelines for the practice of human sexuality. How do we hold fast to the people we do or are called to love AND to the teaching of the Bible? How do we manage our own sexuality? What does it mean to be a truly redemptive community amidst all the complexity of life today? That’s the focus of this series on THE THIRD WAY.

We all have a different idea or sentiment that comes to mind when we hear the word, “home.” For many of us, it’s a physical place, but when we look at the life of Jesus, he never really had one true home. Rather, he created a warm, inviting sense of family and community with his closest companions. Join us June 9-24 for our new sermon series, “Home." We will explore what it means to build a sacred home together – one that is nurturing, faith-filled, and abundant with the love of Jesus Christ.

A new sermon series where we unpack together the Beatitudes of Jesus. In a dominant culture that is filled with anger, violence, and chaos, Jesus provides a picture of redemption in this passage that infuses us with hope. The Beatitudes bring the Kingdom of God to us and remind us of God’s desire to build up his purposes in each of us. We will explore together how understanding meekness, spiritual poverty, peacekeeping, mourning and other postures create in us TheAttitude of Jesus.

If you could ask God any question, what would you ask? Most of us have questions for God that swirl in our heads. We wonder about why certain things happen, we ache to know why life goes a particular way. We might bring to God questions filled with joy or sorrow, anger or awe. What would you ask God? In this series, we have invited thousands of people to write a question they have for God. Our hope is to gather these questions and sift through some of them together. With Scripture as our guide, join us as we turn to God's word to try and find our way to some of the answers.

Advent is a season of hopeful expectation, a time when the church comes together to wait expectantly for the birth of Christ. During this time, Christians around the world worship, pray, and await the peace and hope that Jesus brings. It is a season that is also marked by profound mystery. The deep mysteries of the divine are unknown to us. How did God become human and physically dwell among us? Why did he come first to the poor? It is our joy to journey together into the heart of these divine mysteries and ponder together the awe-inspiring journey that God made to come to earth in human form. Join as as we consider the mysteries of Christ during this Advent season.

Scripture tells us to be grateful in all circumstances, so how do we live in a way that trusts in God’s abundance? Join us for this three-part series where we will explore how God invites us to be grateful for our past, our present, and how we can live with gratitude into our future.

God wants us to flourish in all aspects of our lives and rooting our lives more deeply in Him is the key to helping us do so. We must flourish first as individuals in order for the church to flourish and spread the life-changing love to thousands. Walk with us on this five-week journey as we see what God has to teach us through the life of the first followers of Jesus, as recorded in the inspiring Book of Acts. We will explore how rooting, generosity, freedom, commitment, and faithfulness can all lead to flourishing. Taking root is not a one-time event; it is continually growing in discipleship.

In the middle of our chaotic, mundane, joyful, difficult, broken, messy lives, God calls us to go deeper. He calls us not to be content with living on the surface in our relationship with Him, in our relationship with one another and in our relationship to this world. He calls us to go deeper still in both the things He calls us to do and the people He calls us to become. We will push ourselves and push one another to go deeper still by walking through books of the Bible and through conversations with friends that will challenge and encourage us. Come along on the journey with us.
