Get in a circle

by Jon Laster • October 17, 2018

If you have been around Christ Chapel any length of time, you have likely heard Pastor Jerimy refer to the early church in the book of Acts or mention the phrase “Circles Not Rows.” This is something we strongly believe in!! Here is the scriptural basis… The Community of Believers – Acts 2 The Passion […]

Identity, Part I

by Jeremy McCoy • October 10, 2018

A long time ago, I traveled with a worship band on the road. We spent a lot of time on airplanes, so we decided that, instead of sitting next to each other on the flights, we would split up and sit next to strangers so that we could potentially talk to people about Jesus. If […]

Pause, Don’t Stop

by Larry Rutledge • October 3, 2018

Rest is an important rhythm of life. It is one of our core values here at Christ Chapel. it is also a biblical value. There are so many scriptures that talk about rest. They encourage it as a good practice and they live out examples of rest. We see in the account of creation that […]

Nothing Fails Like Success

by Jerimy Kanaday • September 26, 2018

My favorite thinker, philosopher and theologian Dallas Willard coined this phrase “Nothing Fails Like Success.” He spoke of it many times in the context of local congregations. Some times we begin with an organic, pure desire to reach lost people and see them discipled but somehow lose our way in programs, services and offerings. While […]

Facing Your Ninevah

by Larry Rutledge • September 19, 2018

As children growing up in church we are told some amazing stories. And those stories come with powerful overarching themes presented as the lesson we are supposed to learn. For example: Noah and the Ark: God’s Promise – Genesis 5:32 – 10:1 David and Goliath: God’s Strength and Provision – 1 Samuel 17 Daniel and […]

A Seat at the Table

by Landry Lowrimore • September 12, 2018

School is back. These days as a (somewhat) adult, this season does not affect me the way it used to. Now, it just means that I see school buses more often, and traffic is a living horror. But sometimes when I’m sitting in traffic, or pass by a school bus, or see bright lights suspended […]

Serving in the Local Church

by Jon Laster • September 5, 2018

In today’s culture it’s pretty common that people are more concerned about what they are getting rather than what they are giving.  We live in a demanding and selfish society! I personally believe that selfishness is the key to destruction in all types of relationships.  We tend to WANT, WANT, WANT but struggle to give.  […]

Why I Stopped Going To Church

by Larry Rutledge • August 29, 2018

One reason people may refuse Christianity is because we have made it about the church and not the Gospel. The church does require a cleansing before it can be embraced, the Gospel does not.

I cannot seem to find anywhere in the Bible where Jesus said…. “Feel free to hold on to unforgiveness and bitterness towards those who have hurt you” or “go forth and hurt those who have hurt you” or “shun those that have sinned against you.” I know it sounds funny and a bit laughable, but […]
