20160607_110524_HDR~2Christ and culture is our way of talking about how the Christian faith intersects with the surrounding world. A Christian community engaged in mission is a community active in building bridges between the church and the world. In post-Christian America, the claims of Christianity have less and less credibility and understanding to the average person.  At City Reformed Church we believe that in order to make the gospel intelligible and compelling to a post-everything generation, the church must work extra hard at being comprehensible and engaged with the culture it inhabits. For us this means a couple things:
  • We take intellectual challenges to the Christian faith seriously and seek to provide forums and opportunities for people to engage us on these issues.
  • We believe that Christians make good citizens and ought to be actively engaged in important social issues, politics and local government for the sake of the common good and flourishing of all people.
  • We celebrate and participate in the local community, culture and arts of the city of Milwaukee.
  • We esteem work and desire to help people understand what it means to live out the Christian faith in the context of their vocation.

These values of engagement are embodied in the lives of the people of our congregation and reflected in our conversations when we gather as a community. As we grow we hope that these values will translate more and more into concrete and organized activities within the church.
