“Jerusalem the Golden – with milk and honey blessed!” Feeling weary and oppressed? Can we ever comprehend what joys await us beyond the pearly gates? This Sunday – Saints Triumphant Sunday – we take time to ponder all that is heaven. In our message we’ll find that death means you’re only asleep in Jesus.
Are you looking forward to the end of the world? That might not sound like a great way to start your week, but God’s take on the end of the world is a great source of comfort for the Christian. Do you see the injustice in the world? God does too! Do you see the crippling effects of sin in the world? Of course, God sees the suffering. We learn from Scripture that creation groans under the weight of sin. Come this Sunday to hear God’s rescue plan. Because when God ends the world, he will take us home to heaven.
He is coming! The first Sunday in Advent marks the beginning of four Sundays of preparation as we get ready to celebrate the birth of our Savior. How can we prepare ourselves? Some of us decorate our homes. This can be a fitting outward expression the inward preparations we make in our hearts. This Sunday we’ll explore what those preparations might be. Join us!
When I was growing up – oh, who am I kidding – still today, I don’t like taking naps. What if I miss something? There might be some fun to be had, some game to play if I take a nap? Who wants to sleep his life away?! I know that I might be in the minority on my nap philosophy, but what about death? Of all the reasons to fear death is “missing out” one of them for you? It was for the fledgling congregation in Thessalonica. Watch “Missing Out” to learn more about the Last Day.
