God’s Presence in the Pit

Ashley Greeley offers a creative response to the prayer of Jonah 2, and Andrea Ackermann reflects on where God is in the midst of our troubles. [Jonah 2]

What Kind of God, Part 1

For the month of August, we'll be looking at the story of Jonah in the Old Testament — with a creative response to the text preceding the message. This week, David Hood offered a spoken word poem based on Jonah 1. Then Justin Fung addressed the shootings in El Paso, TX, and Dayton, OH, that happened within the last 24 hours; and raised some of the questions posed by today's passage, including "What kind of God do we believe in?" and "What do we do when God calls us to do the right — but hard — thing?" [Jonah 1]

My Most Important Question 2019, Pt 2

Today we began one of our most popular series: My Most Important Question. Too often churches ask us to check our doubts at the door, to leave our most important questions behind. But the reality is that we all have deep questions we have wrestled with throughout life, and at Christ City Church, we believe that when we wrestle with our biggest questions, it actually deepens our faith. In Mark 9, a man said to Jesus, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!” That captures the paradox of faith — there are things we know and cling to, and there are things we don’t yet know — and may never know. This week, we heard from Deryn ("Why is it so hard to know God and his design for your life?"), Erick ("Why can't I feel the Spirit of God?"), and Akhi ("Are there bad people?").

This week, we heard from Attrace ("What if I fail?"), Angel ("Father, can you really hear me?"), and David ("God, where were you?").

Six Years of Christ City

As we celebrate six years as a church (planted in 2013 as the East Side parish of The District Church and then launched in 2017 as Christ City Church), Matthew Watson helps us consider the call and the challenge of Christ to our congregation by looking at Jesus' words to the church in Ephesus. [Revelation 2:1-4]

The Call of the Kingdom

On the weekend of July 4th, Justin Fung considers the very first words of Jesus in Mark's Gospel—"The time has come. The kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe the good news"—and what that means for us as Christians in America. [Mark 1:14-20]

A Theology of the Here and Now

Creation Care

Theology of the City

The redemptive story of God begins in a garden but it ends in a city. Pastor Matthew Watson preaches on the idea of new heavens and new earth breaking into our city and how we can be a part of it.  [Isaiah 65:17-25]
