Christ of the Hills Church

A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians

We believe the main reason the church exists is to learn about Christ so that we can proclaim Him to the world. Therefore, bible study is an essential part of our church.

We are also called to worship Christ with joy and build each other up in fellowship and service. Being apart of the church body is living life in a community that helps each other thrive.

  • Adult Bible Study: 18 lesson study of Revelation begining April 12th

    Christ of the Hills Church

    The opening words of Revelation announce the book’s title and author: The revelation of Jesus Christ. In this 18-lesson in-depth Bible study, you will engage with the unveiling of Jesus as the Lamb of God, Bridegroom, King, and Judge. You will see how God rules history and will bring it to a triumphal climax in Christ. This study of the Bible will connect you with the enduring truth of God’s Word. Come out of the clutter and clanging of our culture and discover the peace of meeting the God of the Bible in the pages of His Word. We will study verse by verse into the richness of the Scriptures in ways that impact your heart and illumine your mind. You won’t find dry doctrinal debates. You will find simple tools that cultivate your understanding and engage your heart. Tools for transformation. You also will learn how to apply God’s Word in your everyday life. Come join us for an incredible journey!

    "This cross that our family has donated to the church cross wall was handmade by my uncle, Jerry Cook. I love it for it's rustic simplicity. When the community of Christ of the Hills Church was first beginning we studied and worshipped in our home and this cross hung on the wall in our dining room where we had Bible Study. Our contribution is a tribute to those first beginning months where we gathered in simplicity loving the Lord and His Word together."

REV. PETE JOHNSON


Pete Johnson serves as the Church Planting Pastor for Christ of The Hills Church.  Pete grew up in Houston, Texas and married his high school sweetheart, Lori.  They have three adult children who live in Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas.  Pete loves to be outdoors in God’s creation, especially riding his motorcycle or snow skiing.  He and Lori love to watch movies together as they look for stories of redemption and hope in film.  Pete also loves music and just about all forms of art and architecture, as they capture the creative nature of Almighty God.

 

Pete began his relationship with Christ as a sophomore in high school, while involved in Young Life.  He began his ministry career as a volunteer Young Life leader in Lubbock, Texas where he attended college at Texas Tech University.  Upon graduation, he then served as an Area Director in Oklahoma and Texas.  He served as a Regional Director for Young Life for 18 years while living in Boerne, Texas.  After retiring from a 33-year career with Young Life, Pete and Lori felt the Lord calling him to accept the position as our Pastor in October of 2019.

 

Pete is known to be a gifted communicator, team builder and shepherd of people as they walk more deeply with Christ on their journey of faith.


Dear Christ of The Hills Church Family,

We are truly living through a SEASON that most of us have not experienced before. So many challenges, so much uncertainty, a cloud of fear, concern…perhaps that’s why my mind, heart, and soul need to stay grounded to God’s Word and be reminded that NONE of these recent months have been surprise to our Sovereign God Almighty. This season will pass. And He has not left us alone to walk through these challenges alone. We not only have His Presence through the Holy Spirit that is our constant companion, but we also have and need each other, now MORE THAN EVER!

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 (ESV)

    1 For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:
    2 a time to be born, and a time to die;
    a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
    3 a time to kill, and a time to heal;
    a time to break down, and a time to build up;
    4 a time to weep, and a time to laugh;
    a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
    5 a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
    a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
    6 a time to seek, and a time to lose;
    a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
    7 a time to tear, and a time to sew;
    a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
    8 a time to love, and a time to hate;
    a time for war, and a time for peace.

It was such a joy to return to the preaching this past Sunday. And I would once again like to thank those who stood in the gap on my behalf while I recovered from my surgery. Certainly, Bruce Glover and Joe Moore for Preaching the Word of God in my stead…but there are so many of you who work behind the scenes to serve, to support, to reach out to one another in the Love of Christ. On behalf of Lori and I, thank you for your encouragement and loving kindness towards us these past weeks. We are truly blessed to share the bond of Christ with one another.

I also want to express a special welcome and “shout out” to those of you who have connected with us in recent weeks from faraway places through the vehicle of our ZOOM church. You are every bit a part of our fellowship and we celebrate your attending as often as you are able. The Gospel Message is on the MOVE throughout our land!

It’s been 11 weeks since I last wrote to you outlining our plan to respond to the Covid-19 Pandemic. At that time, I expressed our Steering Team would monitor conditions, pay attention to advisement from health officials, local, state and national officials…and take all of those variables before the Lord God Almighty as we sought the Holy Spirit’s guidance in how we should respond and lead in these unique times. You’ll recall, I emphasized we would reserve the right to be flexible, and fluid as conditions changed or warranted a new plan. PLEASE KEEP THAT IN MIND…we need your patience, flexibility and support as much as ever in the coming weeks and months.

Well, with that as background…I announced during this past Sunday’s Worship Service on May 3rd, that we as a Steering Team have prayerfully and carefully come to the conclusion that it is time for us to begin a NEW PHASE starting this coming Sunday, May 10th. We’re calling it HYBRID CHURCH! I realize, a few of you may have missed that news…so here it is in writing with a bit more detail than I expressed on Sunday.

What this means, is that we will continue our Zoom Adult Bible Study and Zoom Worship Service as we have for the past 11 weeks. If you are in the high risk category and are more vulnerable to the Covid-19 virus as result…or if you are potentially experience any systems of the virus, OR have potentially been exposed to someone with the Virus…then the right decision for you is to relax, stay at home and join us as you have on our ZOOM church platform. That is the right choice for you and for the safety of our Church Family as well.

That is the right choice for you and for the safety of our Church Family as well.

BUT if you’re in a category of folks that feel comfortable gathering in person at the Christ of the Hills Church Building…continuing to use social distancing and sanitizing protocols to limit the Covid-19 spread, then you are welcome to join us this Sunday, May 10th. This will include a return to our Children’s Sunday School Classes, and Adult Sunday School Class from 9:30 am to 10:30 am (again, the Adult Class will be available simultaneously on ZOOM) and then our Worship Service will begin at 11 am (also available on ZOOM).

Katy Calverley will be sending an email to us on Friday with specific procedures to ensure we gathering at the Church Building in a safe manner, and not putting anyone as risk. Please be looking for that communication if you plan to join us. And certainly, reach out to Katy, myself or anyone on the Steering Team should you have questions or concerns. I’d like to thank George Phair has he has worked so diligently over the past several weeks to ensure we constantly maintaining and improving upon our sanitizing procedures.

LASTLY, I’d like to highlight and extend a fresh invitation for you to join us tonight for our Wednesday Mid Week Prayer Time at 8 p.m. on ZOOM. As you may recall, this gathering was intended to replace our Sunday Morning 10:30 am time in which we could express prayer requests with one another and then lift those requests before the Lord as we bear one another’s burdens. Our time begins sharply at the top of the hour and lasts 30 minutes. If you haven’t been able to attend lately…please consider joining us again. It’s better when you’re there…we are more complete. I’ll announce a slight schedule change that will take effect next week, May 13th as we’ll move up our starting time just a bit. But for now, consider the uplifting experience of joining together for a mid-week time of prayer this evening at 8 pm. I’ve found it such a respite from the cares and stress of the week.

I’ll close as I started by pointing us to God’s Word. Where else could we turn but to His promises and the Truth’s that we anchor our faith?

Romans 8:35-39 (ESV)

    35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? 36 As it is written, “For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.” 37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

I look forward to seeing each of you on a screen or in the same room…all in His Time.

God Bless each of you and your loved ones, in the Powerful and Almighty Name of our Lord Jesus Christ

Adult Bible Study Lesson

Join us every Sunday morning, at 9:30 AM


All,

This week we will be discussing Lesson #14 Revelation 19:1-16. After the judgement of God in the destruction of the prostitute, Babylon, we are once again privileged to see the throne of God and tremendous worship of God and the Lamb. As we have discussed multiple times during our study, worship of God is at the center of Revelation and is the thing that centers us to reality. On page 120 of our lesson under the section "personalize", we are asked to list all the reasons we can think of to praise God today. As I began this exercise, my list included 22 characteristics/activities of God that took me less than 2 minutes to write down. To be honest, I stopped because I needed to move forward with what God had given me to do that day. The list is endless. I urge you to do the same because it centers us on God and forms our prayers to Him.

Pete continues to lead us through the Gospel of Luke giving us God's message. Please join us this Sunday either "by Zoom or in the room" as I steal the phrase Pete should patent. Bring your hearts and minds centered on our great God and King!

I look forward to hearing what the Holy Spirit has taught you in this week's lesson.

See you Sunday!
