Afterlife:  What’s Next?
What should we make of near-death experiences? 
Some things the Bible is crystal clear on.  For example, the gospel:  That Jesus died and rose again as a perfect sacrifice to pay for our sin so we can have permanent forgiveness and eternal life, starting right now.  Other things are not revealed with the same clarity.  Questions we have about life and death can only be partially answered definitively by Scripture.  For example, reports of millions of people of “near-death experiences” where they claim to have gone to heaven and returned.  In spite of the fact that the vast majority of these reports contain the same or similar elements (bright light, sensing perfect love, the presence of God, etc.) they cannot be completely confirmed by what we know from Scripture.  So what do we make of them?  Does the Bible help us at all in that question?  If so, how?  And, most importantly what difference does it all make?
Join us this Sunday at 10:30am in person or online as we explore what the Bible has to say about death, life, and the afterlife!

He, however, took her by the hand and called, saying, “Child, arise!” And her spirit returned, and she got up immediately; and He gave orders for something to be given her to eat. (Luke 8:54-55)
Fall Kickoff has arrived!
Please plan to join us this Sunday to green newcomers and please invite as many as possible.  Here is a link you can share with our promo video:
God has given us the privilege of reaching this generation at this time in history.  It is our unique mission!  What we do now will echo into eternity, so let’s do it well!  I believe God will use our efforts to reach many who need Jesus right now!  Please join me in prayer for this weekend and the weeks to come!
See you on Sunday!

Jerry Schrick, Senior Pastor
