SUPER SUNDAY GRAND LAUNCH | FEBRUARY 4, 2018

The 180 members of the Founding Core of Christ Church Esplanade are hard at work, preparing for the grand launch of our first multisite branch on Super Bowl Sunday, February 4, 2018! Here's a glimpse into the practice and preparation that has been taking place this month!

 

Communion and Commissioning Weekend | January 6-7, 2018

On the first Sunday in January, we gathered as One Church in the Sanctuary to take communion and commission our Christ Church Esplanade Founding Core as they head off to our first multisite branch in Downers Grove! This particular weekend, we were reminded of what being a church family is all about. As we laid hands on each other, creating a web of prayer, spreading across the entire Sanctuary, we could feel the presence of God so strongly. 

 

 

Christ Church Esplanade | 3500 Lacey Drive, Downers Grove

Christ Church has made a commitment to root ourselves more deeply in Christ for the sake of others, and that decision has brought us to our next defining moment! On February 4, 2018, we will be opening our newest Christ Church location—Christ Church Esplanade! We are excited about growing the Christ Church family and extending our reach, but there is much to do between now and our launch. We ask you to begin praying for all God will do as we gather the church in this new location and ask if He might be calling you to step up in leadership to serve.

Children's Ministry: There are openings for all positions, but our greatest immediate need is for creative space planners—with or without prior experience of children’s “church-in-a-box” – and team leaders.

Small Group Leadership: As we seek to center our lives on Christ and grow in our faith, we need partners for the journey! We were not meant walk alone. Small group community provides the space to come together and pursue how to follow the movement of the Holy Spirit to worship, grow and serve.

Hospitality: Does meeting new people bring you joy? First impressions are crucial—and discovering good friends is a prerequisite to finding a church home. If you are a friendly, warm soul that loves to meet and assist others, join the team!

Safety and Security: The Esplanade is an amazing facility—complete with masses of adjacent covered parking. There is still a need to be prepared for any eventuality.
