Prodigal God

Prodigal means “extravagant, lavish, or wasteful.” We know the traditional name for the Luke 15 parable as “The Prodigal Son.” But it could better be titled, “The Extravagant, Loving Father and His Two Lost Sons!” We pray this series will drastically deepen your grasp of God’s grace - the heart of true Christianity.

Radical Hospitality

Hospitality opens the door of welcome to the guest. The Gospel of Christ is about Radical Hospitality! Christ himself is the Good Samaritan who, through the cross, brings unexpected love that transforms us and frees us to love God and become a neighbor to anyone in need.

Is Jesus' Vision Really Our Vision?

We are asking a challenging question as we enter 2016: “What if Jesus physically came to our neighborhood…our church…our homes?” Would we welcome Him? What would He say about HIS Church? Does our vision and mission as a Christian Community REALLY look like His? Do they line up?

Hope for Everyone

Advent and Christmas, 2015
Everyone needs Hope! The story of the arrival (‘Advent’) of Jesus comes alive in Luke’s Gospel. It’s a story of hope that changes everything; a story that we can’t keep to ourselves!

Sermon List


Lament (passionate expression of grief and sorrow - usually in poetic or song form) is important for our world today! Besides personal suffering, there is much lament in the face of war, displacement, and other disasters. But it must be seen in the context of the Bible’s whole story of redemption in Christ and New Creation to come. God invites us to talk with him through our pain and suffering. We must learn to lament as part of our community worship and transformation.


Sermon List

Faith at Work

One of our Mission Priorities is to become and make committed disciples of Christ who glorify God and embody our faith in every area of life. This fall, we want to inspire, equip, and support one another to bear witness - in our lives, work, and words - to the loving reign of God in ‘the real world.’


Sermon List


“practice or doing — as distinguished from theory"

As a deer longs for flowing streams, so my soul longs for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. (Psalm 42:1-2)

God has given us the disciplines -or- practices of the spiritual life as a means to be transformed: how to meditate on Scripture; learning discipleship through our experiences; living the Good News.

This summer at Christ Church, we want to go deeper in our encounter with God!

Ordinary People Radical Kingdom

​My Kingdom is not of this world. (Jesus, John 18:36)
God calls ordinary people to do the work of His Kingdom here and now! This 5 week series explores what it means for us ordinaries to be called by Christ to join him in something truly radical and subversive. 
The Church is “God’s mission to the world for the sake of the world so the world will become what it is meant to be.”  (Scot McKnight)
