Sunday School

Sunday School Video Study Through Lent
Begins Sunday, March 10 at 9:00 am
All Things New: Heaven, Earth, and the Restoration of Everything You Love By John Eldridge (born June 6, 1960 in Los Angeles) is an American author, counselor, and lecturer on Christianity.
In this video study John Eldridge poses a different view, “Most Christians miss the ultimate hope for their future because their views of heaven are vague, religious . . . and, frankly, boring. Hope begins when we understand that for the believer, nothing is lost. Heaven is not an endless life of harp strumming and worship singing in the clouds. Rather, the life we long for – the paradise Adam and Eve knew – is precisely the life that is coming to us. And that life is coming soon. “In this five-session study, John Eldredge explores the revolutionary idea that according to the Bible, heaven is not our eternal home – the New Earth is. Jesus said the next chapter of our story begins with “the renewal of all things” (Matthew 19:28), by which he meant the earth we love, ourselves, and all the things that make for a rich life: music, art, food, and laughter. God’s promise is that everything shall be renewed “when the world is made new.”
Children’s Sunday School is offered during the worship service. Children leave the service after the childrens moment and rejoin worship prior to communion.
