How much more can you take? At what point should you give up? It’s questions like these that many Christians face down on a daily basis. Before we get into a contest of suffering, let’s hear what our God has to say on the topic. There are many who refuse to have anything to do with Christmas because of the suffering in the world. It is for that very reason that Jesus was sent – to rescue the world from sin and offer an eternity that is better by far! Join us this Sunday as we continue our journey to the cradle with a look at Job.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! We begin a new church year with the first Sunday in Advent. Hear the call to prepare your hearts. Jesus is coming! Don’t worry, we’ll help you get ready this year. I won’t be personally coming over to help trim your tree, but you will hear from John the Baptist. His cry in the wilderness still rings today: REPENT! Join us this Sunday as we begin our journey to the cradle. It is there that we will find the new born king.
The death of Adam didn’t happen for almost a thousand years. Does that seem odd? Imagine if a criminal was condemned to die, but was then placed on death row for almost a thousand years. Do you think Adam ever wondered if God would ever keep his promise? Am I really going to die?
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!
There are plenty of scary events that come into our lives. Mary the mother of Jesus knows the feeling too. Not only was she terrified at the sight of an angel, the news the angel gave her would change her life forever. This Advent season God doesn’t want us quaking in our boots. He comes as the prince of peace for our lives. Want to find that peace? Watch!
