Is experiencing peace really possible? This Sunday we celebrate the Advent of Peace and are reminded that Jesus came to earth to bring us peace. If we are unclear about what happens when we die, we'll never have peace no matter how wonderful our circumstances may feel. Can we know for certain what happens after death? Join us as we see that what you believe about your future after death determines your peace in the present.
Immanuel--"God with Us"--came to earth to die, rise again and return to heaven. Jesus is now seated at the right hand of God the Father interceding for us until he returns again in the future. Mike Tabor from The Happy Church shared with us as we continue to celebrate Advent. Join us as we think about what it means that because Jesus gave his life for us on the cross, we receive grace and mercy when we approach the throne room of God.
Advent is the season of the year we set aside to prepare our hearts to celebrate the arrival of Jesus as a baby 2000 years ago, as well as the return of Jesus in the future. Isaiah predicted that Messiah would be called "Immanuel", which means "God with us" (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23). What does this mean as we stand between what Jesus did and what we anticipate Jesus will do in the future? Join us as we begin an Advent series discovering afresh that the God who is with us is the same God who is for us.
