It is that time of year again, when we ring out the current year (2016) and welcome the new year (2017). For most of the world, the new year is a time when life feels fresh and new. This seems to be the one time when we can put behind us our problems and get a fresh start. Curiously, I have seen a number of people ready for 2016 to end because it has been “such a horrible year.” Why? Because several famous celebrities have died. It is as if death is something unusual, and that with 2017, we can get away from death. But death is always with us. The Bible tells us that death is the inevitable result of sin (James 1:15), and sin is found in every person (Romans 3:23). There is even a common quip “two things are certain in life: death and taxes.”...
This is the time of year when people, especially Christians, think about the incarnation. The term “incarnation” comes from the Latin verb incarnare, which means “to be made flesh,” and it is the term we used to describe how God, in the Person of Jesus Christ, came into the world and took on humanity. It is a great mystery of the Christian faith ...

This is the weekend leading up to the celebration of Independence Day, or the July 4th holiday, in the United States. Our nation does not have as long a history as others, but it does seem very long and far away to celebrate an event that occurred 240 years ago....

Each summer, the people of Christ Church band together to bring their time and talent to show children in the Katy community the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is amazing to me how much effort is involved in hosting more than 100 children for a week of mornings!...Keep Reading
By now I imagine most of you have seen or heard of the decision of the U.S. Supreme Court forcing homosexual “marriage” on all the States. While this is discouraging, I would advise you neither to be surprised nor despondent....Keep Reading
Summer is here, and at Christ Church, that means that Vacation Bible School is near! Our 2015 VBS takes children out on the high seas with a Summer SeaQuest adventure. ...Keep Reading
Join us this Lord's Day as we gather together to worship a risen Savior who is alive, and who ever lives to intercede for us! At Christ Church, we will have our two morning worship services at 8:30 AM and 11:00 AM and look together at "Who is Righteous?" (Luke 18:9-14). ...Keep Reading
That dreaded weekend is here: the time when we all lose an hour of our lives, and most importantly an hour of sleep! Daylight Savings Time begins tonight at 2:00 AM, and we need to "spring forward" one hour....Keep Reading
It’s October 25th, that is, my birthday. I have now turned the ripe, solidly middle-age of 45. I have long reached the point where, by average life expectancy, I have more years behind me than in front. With a nod to those my senior, I do understand that this does not make me objectively “old.” But I do think that a birthday is a good occasion to take s...Keep Reading
When we hear the word â€œacceptâ€ in relation to the call of the gospel, we generally think of ourselves as â€œacceptingâ€ the invitation. But what does the Bible actually say? In Scripture, this language of â€œacceptanceâ€ is not that you or I accept Jesus, but that God accepts us....Keep Reading

Not one of His children can be snatched from His hand. We can count on it....Keep Reading
