Churchtoons, cartoons from Church


Welcome to Churchtoons! Every Sunday I try to post a new cartoon. Here are my latest:

Advent: Waiting with a servant

The great promise of the advent season is that Christ will return and make things right for everyone. While we wait for his return, we can take comfort that the coming Christ often shows up in our lives as a gentle servant, ready to fix our personal, shattered worlds (Is 42:1-4).

Advent: We wait for our coming king

Micah 5 describes a conquering king who will defeat all of the pain and suffering we face everyday. Our suffering is ascribed to the sin that now rules the world. When our king, the Lord Jesus Christ returns, we believe that this sin will be destroyed and with it, our pain and suffering. Can you take comfort in knowing that our suffering is temporary?

Advent: We wait with a promise

While Christians mourn with the broken and work to be like Jesus by helping the vulnerable
(James 2), we also recognize our inability to truly change the world. The great hope of the Christian, is that one day Christ will return and bring justice and mercy to our broken world. Genesis 3 gives us that first glimpse of coming savior.

What do your prayers say about you?

The story of the proud religious man in Luke 18 might make you feel better about your prayers. Compared to this obviously proud man, we might be tempted to feel superior in our own faith and in the way we express it, but if we look closely enough, will we see a little bit of even this caricature in ourselves? May we find the courage to face our inner hypocrite.

Happy Thanksgiving

1 Thessalonians gives us this simple command, In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you

Do you think God is your servant?

Luke 17 provides insight into how we think of God. While referring to ourselves as humble, our requests show that we expect God to do be our servant and to perform according to our timetable. How are you treating God? As master or servant?

Happy Veterans' Day

As Christians, we understand that giving your life for another is the essence of Christ-like behavior (Jn 15). For those who have served their country and given of themselves to preserve freedoms and liberties, we say thank you for being like Christ. In what way have you given of yourself?

NOTE: As a former USAF member, churchtoons' author Bob Church gives all of his fellow vets a shout-out and a call for support in any legislation that will provide relief.


Each of the cartoons on this site is an expression of a sermon I heard in church. As a cartoonist, my method of understanding complex theological topics is to boil them down to simple images.

These images will never do justice to the sermons from which they are derived, but hopefully, they convey at least one aspect of those sermons to you, the reader.

I hope that you gain some benefit from the cartoons and will reuse them in ways that honor Christ.
