Loving the God who Loves Us
The heart of worship is love –– God's love for us, our love for God, the love God gives us for each other. Our worship is both ancient and new, with both historic prayers and hymns, fresh songs and preaching that listens for God's word in our lives as they are today, and times of silence that open us to God's loving presence with us.
There are two ways to worship with Christ Church:
In-person, Sundays, 10:30 a.m., at 12419 Chillicothe Rd, Chesterland
Online by livestream Sundays, 10:30 a.m., or with archived services.
Eighteenth Sunday after Pentecost

We live in a world with many claims to authority, thus the many who feel pulled by “demands” of work, family, activities, and just the desires of their own hearts. When religious leaders confronted Jesus about the authority in which he sourced his life, he responded with a question about the authority of John the Baptist in whose baptism he was anointed as God’s Son and given the Holy Spirit. In our baptism, Jesus is given to us as the true authority in our lives––the only one who can finally tell us who we are and whose Spirit we must finally obey in how we would live.
