Sermon series

How would you fill in the blank? Never-ending church service? Spirits flitting about the clouds, eating cream cheese? Streets of gold? Boring?

Wait a minute. Is it even real? Earth is all we know. This life is all I know. I have some really great times here and I have been to some pretty terrific places. How do I say ‘good-bye’ to all this?

Heaven is hard to imagine. Hmmm… do I really want to go?

"Can I pray for you?" "Sure", comes the reply. It’s amazing! Christian, atheist, agnostic, or spiritual tourist, it doesn’t matter. It seems like almost everyone has room for prayer in their life at one time or another. But now what?

Do you know Him? How well do you know Him? What do you know about Him? Could you write a 'top 10'? How important is it to know Who He is?

The most precious thing on earth is a good relationship. The only thing more precious is many good relationships.

We are pre-configured for relationship and love, the source of which is our Creator who is relational by His very nature and definition. God is 3 in 1. He is love, and He seeks worshipers. He wants to build and to have a relationship with people. You. Me. We. Us.
