Heaven - A Biblical Study of Eternity!

Imagine you’re on a spaceship strapped in and ready to launch into space. You can hear mission control counting down 10, 9, 8…….. and you turn to the person next to you and say, “Where are we going?” The person next to you says “I don’t really know much at all but I guess we will have the rest of our lives to find out more about it.” Unfortunately that is how many Christians behave regarding heaven, our eternal destination. We don’t know much but we know were are going there. It could be that they believe that the Bible has little to say about heaven and therefore feel it is unimportant to focus on things so far away and so little is known. The truth is the Bible does have a lot to say about heaven and it is immensely important that we understand and prepare now for where we are going to spend eternity. This 7 week study will offer a biblical study on heaven. Course materials must be purchased in advance.

The course meets October 9th – November 20th at 8:15am in Meeting Room 2.
