Last Saturday was such a great week as we continued our brand new series So You’re Dead…Now What? In this series, we’ll talking about the afterlife, heaven, and hell. All things that are cloaked in mystery and a ton of opinions. Is there a heaven? Hell? What happens right after we die? Do we go someplace immediately? Do we just cease to exist? While everyone wonders about the afterlife, for most of our thinking, the afterlife is someplace off in the distance, not something we have to worry about right now. But, what Scripture says about the afterlife has huge implications not only on death and eternity, but in how we live everyday.
If you missed it, you can listen to it here or you can watch the sermon here.
This week, I’ll be preaching from 2 Peter 3:11 – 13 and looking at God’s ultimate goal for the world. We’ll answer the question of what ulitmately happens to the world, is it destroyed, does God redeem all things? If he redeems all things, what does that mean, what does that look like?
We’ll also look at what heaven is like. When it comes to the afterlife, one of the main questions I get is, “What is heaven like?” Is it a bunch of people floating around with harps wearing diapers? Is it an endless church service? I talked to a guy recently who told me, “I know I should be excited about heaven, but I’m not and I feel bad about that.” I think that is how many of us feel because we don’t know what heaven is really like. So that’s what we’ll look to uncover this week, what heaven is really like.
Here are a few other things going on this weekend I don’t want you to miss:
- June 15 is Planet Rev’s family fun night at Chick Fil-A. Your kids eat free and there will be activities from the Planet Rev team for kids of all ages to do. I’ll be there and hope to see you there. Email Jared Carter if you have any questions.
- Our next baptism will be on June 16. If you are interested in getting baptized or have questions about it, please email Mike Miller.
- Our next round of community dinners are happening the week of June 24th. If you’d like to sign up, you can do so online here.
I’m looking forward to seeing you this Saturday, at 5pm. Bring someone with you as we celebrate and gather as a church family.
Remember, we meet at 6620 E 22nd St.
See you Saturday.
