How To Approach Heaven | Revelation 4

Do you wonder what it’s like in Heaven? Or how it will feel to kneel before God on His throne?

Revelation 4 gives us a glimpse into the throne room of God who sits now and reigns forever on His throne.

This weekend, let’s join the multitude of angels, who sing day and night, You “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God almighty!”

Experiencing the Holiness of God

Experiencing the Holiness of God | Isaiah 6

In Isaiah 6, God’s prophet Isaiah sees an astonishing vision of heaven and God’s magnificence. When Isaiah encounters the Lord, he cannot help but see his own sin and weakness – his faults fully exposed. It is no different for us today.

In God’s presence, there is no room for comparison or way to hide… but even where sin is great, grace is greater still!

Pastor James has a special message leading into and out of this weekend teaching – join us as we encounter God in His Word and turn to Him in repentance and faith.

Everyday Joy Through Contentment | Philippians 4

The Apostle Paul was a follower of Jesus who suffered through imprisonment, hunger and persecution. Amazingly, despite those trials he declared, “I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.”

When we rejoice in what God has provided, we will not become overwhelmed by what we don’t have.

This Thanksgiving weekend, let’s be thankful for God’s goodness and content in what He has provided. Join us in Philippians 4 as learn “Everyday Joy Through Contentment”!
