The Front Church is a new non-denominational Christian church in the southern part of the Salt Lake Valley. New? Not particularly religious? From another tradition? We are preparing for all sorts of company. We can’t wait for your 0-12 year old kids to experience KidFront. We think they’ll love it! Come no strings attached. We can’t wait to meet you!
“Who, me?” “Who, them?” Jesus is like a captain picking the wrong people for his team. But if we’re not careful, we’ll miss why Jesus assembles his team like he does – we are formed in community. Community is messy, but community is worth it. Community is the way Jesus goes about forming us to be his people in our world. Watch as our Lead Pastor Nate Ray continues our teaching series, “Community Formed by Jesus’ Story.”

We were made for community. But in the Christian story, we take a step even further back: we were made *from* community. This week, we’re developing a Christian theology of community. We begin with God. At the source of all things is a relationship of self-giving love (the Trinity). We move through the creation story, Adam, Abraham, and Israel. Watch as we continue our series, “Community Formed By Jesus’ Story,” and discover how Jesus invites us to be a part of his community.

A lot of us are lonely, which means we need to ask ourselves an important question: Does our way of doing life lend itself to loneliness? Maybe it’s time to rethink our routines. Watch as our Lead Pastor Nate Ray kicks off our new teaching series, “Community Formed by Jesus’ Story.”

Does it ever feel like God’s forgotten you? You aren’t alone. Our Lead Pastor Nate looks at the story that the Israelites began every new year with – the Passover. It is during the Passover celebration – a meal meant to retell the story of Passover and remind God’s people He has not forgotten – that Jesus explains his purpose in coming. Listen and be encouraged.

Christmas is the story of God meeting us in the middle of our “not okay.” Watch as our Lead Pastor Nate Ray finishes our teaching series, “Not Your Grandma’s Christmas: A Fresh Look at an Age-Old Story.”
December 19, 2021
We like our Christmas story sanitized and sentimental, but the actual Christmas story is anything but sanitized and sentimental. It was messy. Watch as our Lead Pastor Nate Ray continues our teaching series, “Not Your Grandma’s Christmas: A Fresh Look at an Age-Old Story.” Jesus is the beauty in the mess, and He wants to be the beauty in our mess. Join us as we take a fresh look at Luke 2:1-20.

Watch as our Lead Pastor Nate Ray continues our teaching series, “Not Your Grandma’s Christmas: A Fresh Look at an Age-Old Story.” Joseph had a plan for his life, his wife, and his future family, and two words interrupted all of his plans: “I’m pregnant.” Often, we see interruptions, but God sees opportunities. Often we see annoyances into our plans, but interruptions can become the places we encounter Jesus. Join us as we take a fresh look at Matthew 1:18-25.
December 5, 2021
Watch as our Lead Pastor Nate Ray kicks off our new teaching series, “Not Your Grandma’s Christmas: A Fresh Look at an Age-Old Story.” When we think of Christmas, often our thoughts feel nice and cozy, like Grandma’s robe. Warm feelings, mixed with nostalgia, sentimentality, Grandma’s eggnog, and Amy Grant singing us Christmas songs flood our memories. But when we take Grandma’s cozy robe off of Christmas and take a fresh look, we discover a story that has changed, is changing, and will change the world. Join us as we look at Luke 2 with fresh eyes.

Tastes have a way of transporting us back to a moment in time. Watch as our Lead Pastor Nate Ray teaches through a story about Jesus and his followers that would have been filled with tastes and aromas. Later, these tastes and aromas would have brought back sweet memories, painful memories, embarrassing memories, and most importantly reminded them that through it all, with Jesus, there is nothing they lacked. Luke 22:7-38

No, we’re not talking about literal clothes, but we are letting the kids teach us. When Jonny puts his Spiderman clothes on – bam – he’s changed, ready to take down the bad guys, scale the walls, and spew spiderwebs out of his wrist. Watch as our Lead Pastor Nate Ray continues our teaching series, “Let the Kids Teach Us.” He shares from Romans 3:9-26. In it, Paul writes about our old clothes that aren’t getting the job done, and our new clothes available to us in Jesus.

No matter our traditions, we all come with a view of God: who God is, what God is like, what God thinks of me, what God thinks of them, what God is doing in the world. Jesus is always inviting us to reshape our views of God around Him, and to do so in community. Our Lead Pastor Nate Ray shares from Luke 18:9-14.

June 27, 2021
Watch this important message.
Times are changing. We’re about to be a new church. A lot has built towards this moment. Our Lead Pastor Nate reflects on the story of the Exodus. God had rescued His people, was leading His people, and God’s people kept looking back and wanting to go back, instead of looking ahead towards the new life of the promised land. We can look at them and think they must have been clueless, but if we are honest, we realize we do this too.
August 8, 2021
We’ve all lived “How did I get here?” moments. Our Lead Pastor Nate Ray shares from Luke 7, where we meet someone in their “How did I get here?” moment. What happens? How does Jesus respond? God may look a lot different than we have been tempted to think.

On Saturday morning, February 27, friends, neighbors, and community members joined with the people of The Front Church to give away 40,000 lbs of food! At The Front Church, we don’t just want to be a church in our community; we want to be a church for our community.
When it looks like hell around you, Heaven has come to live within you.
Our Lead Pastor Nate Ray shared this message at Cheyenne Hills Church, kicking off their new series, “Christmas in Focus.” Cheyenne Hills is a partner of The Front Church.
