This week we’ll begin a brief, three-week sermon series about the Jewish High Holy Days. Our focus on Sunday will be Rosh ha-Shana, the Jewish New Year – which Jews around the world will be celebrating on Sunday! As we explore the meaning of Rosh ha-Shana, each of us will be challenged to examine how […]
Last week we talked about how “loving our neighbor as ourselves” requires a willingness to listen deeply, especially when our neighbor’s life experience differs from our own. This week we’ll get a chance to practice that. Pastor Jeff will do an interview sermon with Jamie Burier. He and his wife are fairly new to LifeJourney. Jamie […]
Those words are powerful – some of the most powerful negative impulses we’ll ever feel. It’s easy to get trapped there – individually and collectively as groups of people. But Jesus calls us to something higher. This Sunday we’ll explore what that higher calling looks like when applied in practical ways in our daily life. SERMON REFERENCE: […]

This Sunday we’ll wrap up our sermon series on heaven by tackling the ultimate question: Who gets in? We’ll do a deep dive into what the Bible says. You might be surprised.

Do you ever wonder what it will “feel” like to be in heaven? That’s what we’ll explore this week. For guidance, we’ll look at one of the most intriguing passages about heaven found in the book of Revelation. And in the process, we’ll gain insight as to how we can experience a bit more heaven […]
In the popular imagination, heaven is often pictured as a place of eternal rest, kind of like an old folks’ home in the sky. Nothin’ to do but sit around on clouds and play harps. To most of us, that doesn’t sound very uninviting. As we continue our sermon series on heaven, this Sunday we’re […]
