Ash Wed 2019.jpg

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent. Imposing ashes on the forehead is an ancient tradition going back to the first few centuries of the Church. It’s both a sobering and subversive liturgical practice to consider that one day we are going to die. What happens then? Also, what are we doing with the life we’ve been given? Listen as Pastor David invites us to reflect upon the meaning of Ash Wednesday, before we receive the ashes symbolizing our own mortality, our need for God, and our need to repent of our sins.

Heaven is Not Our Home (And Why That's a Good Thing)

Sermon Title: Heaven is Not Our Home (And Why That's a Good Thing)
Scripture Reading: Isaiah 65:17; 2 Corinthians 5:1-10; Revelation 21:1-5

Heaven is Not Our Home.jpg

It has been ingrained into the thinking of many Christians that this world is not our home, we're just passing through. For years it has been reinforced through books, sermons, songs, etc. But does the Bible actually teach that? And if that's true, what does it say about the way we live now and how we treat the planet? In Heaven is Not Our Home (And Why That's a Good Thing), Pastor David helps us to see that heaven is coming to earth and that our real hope is in the resurrection of the dead and the renewal of all things.
