Christmas at the Movies

Christmas in America has so much symbolism and folklore, music, books, and movies that all share a similar feeling; hope.

Joel is a series we will be doing focusing on the three chapters of prophetic poems from the book of Joel. A precursor to our advent series focusing on the Kingdom of God. In the same focus, we will read Joel and see God’s judgement of sin, His hope of repentance, and His coming reign. We hope to see our church turn from a place of complacency, to a place of repentance and expectancy in pursuit of God’s heart and His kingdom.

You and me Forever

It’s until death do us part. Then comes eternal rewards or regrets depending on how we spent our lives.

It all comes down to our focus. The way to have a great marriage is by NOT focusing on marriage.
