Christ Community Church: Nothing is typical right now.

By  | 

Christ Community Church (with campuses in St. Charles, Aurora, DeKalb, and Streamwood) wants to assure you that this is not the way it is supposed to be. While none of us know why God allows suffering, we can take comfort knowing he didn’t exempt himself from suffering. In fact, he showed up on earth in the person of Jesus to suffer and die. He did it to give us life. To breathe life into our lungs. To give us hope.

During 2020, Christ Community has been reminded again and again of this hope—and that being the church was never about a building. It’s about being like Jesus where we are. Christ Community left its four Chicagoland buildings during shelter-in-place, but saw God move.

Now, in-person worship services have resumed in St. Charles, Aurora, Dekalb, and Streamwood with safety measures including social-distancing and mask-wearing. If you are looking for a safe, loving, and inspiring place to worship, we’d love to meet you.

You can join us online at ccclife.org as well. Not only do we broadcast four services per weekend, but we have a slate of online programs for kids and youth, support and recovery groups, and more. If you are feeling anxious, fearful, grief-stricken, or confused, we have a place for you called Care Night (www.carenight.org).

We’d like to extend two special invitations.

First, we believe stories matter. They move us and remind us of hope. This is why Christ Community brings in guests with inspiring stories three times a year. On December 12 & 13, our Inspiring Stories guest is Captain Tammie Job Shults, one of the U.S. Navy’s first female fighter pilots and former Southwest Airlines pilot. On April 17, 2018, she safely landed Flight 1380 after the aircraft suffered engine failure and rapid decompression of the aircraft.

Second, we hope you will join us in-person or online for Christmas Eve services on December 23 & 24 as we ask, “What are you looking for?” Learn more about Christ Community Church at www.ccclife.org.
