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.

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.
This week we will be discussing Lesson #3 Daniel 2:1-23. Daniel is now in exile in Babylon under service of the king. The king is having disturbing dreams that are causing him sleepless nights. He places unreasonable demands upon his wise men with the threat of death if they cannot do what he wants. Daniel and his friends get caught up in all of this even though they were never consulted by the king. What do Daniel and his friends do when the executioner shows up at their doorstep? What would you do? Daniel and his friends turn in prayer to the Almighty God. Seems like a smart thing to do but is that my go-to response in difficult circumstances or is it a last resort response when all my other ideas have failed? Do we as a Church see prayer as something we are supposed to do but don't really put much stock into it?
This week, Pete continues to lead us through the Gospel of Luke as we get deeper into the earthly ministry of Jesus. Please come to worship and study with your hearts and minds prepared to hear the truth that God would have us know. Come with hearts and minds filled with joy and gladness that we have a Savior who deserves our praise and honor.
I look forward to hearing what the Holy Spirit has taught you in this week's lesson.
See you Sunday!
