Experience a guided reflection on a scripture passage via weekly podcast episodes during Lent...
God's love is the most powerful force in the world. It can transform the heart of hate and strengthen the heart of fear. It can inspire action and motivate to serve. To put it simply, God's love matters. We believe that experiencing God's love is the key to finding and living the kind of life God created us to live.
Christ Church United Methodist’s Vision and Discernment Team has prayerfully worked over nine months, discerning a way for our church to move forward as we await the General Conference’s resolution regarding human sexuality. The Team presented their Statement of Welcome and Hope to the Administrative Council and members of the congregation; it was affirmed and adopted on June 20, 2022.
We asked the congregation to imagine a world where God's kingdom was a reality and we discovered we are passionate about three things: children, discipleship and sharing the good news of Christ. It has led us to focus our greatest passion and energy in the coming years on a vision of Healing Divides as we:
Engage in Small Groups
Closing the gap between who you are now and who God is calling you to be. We become who God is calling us to be by experiencing the power and presence of Christ in a spiritually authentic small group.
Why? A transformed world depends on transformed disciples.
Plant New Faith Communities
Supporting fresh ways to bring the light of God to new communities of people. Why? We need to meet people where they are to share God’s love.
Meeting the basic needs of food, shelter, education, hope and love for Louisville's children and adolescents. Why? We are a city divided geographically, socially, economically and racially and we can begin to heal those divides by meeting the basic needs of children.
Our Senior Pastor is Rev. Dr. Eric Bryant. Pastor Eric joined Christ Church in the summer of 2019. He entered pastoral ministry in 1991 and became an ordained elder in the Kentucky Annual Conference in 1999. He has a passion to reach the people for Jesus Christ and to see the church renew, grow and become all God desires it to be.
