Pastor’s Letter

Dear Bible Center family & friends,

Welcome to church! Thanks for visiting in person or tuning in online or on TV.

You’ve picked a great day to attend or tune in because the message is all about heaven.

  • Who gets to go to heaven?
  • When do we go to heaven?
  • What will it be like?

Thankfully, our Pastor of Discipleship and Multiplication, Mike Graham, will deliver the message. He’s one of my favorite teachers and preachers, so I’ll be right there with you, taking notes and asking God to speak to my heart from His Word.

When you hear today’s message, you’ll benefit by knowing where it fits in the bigger picture. Since September we’ve journeyed through the Bible’s core doctrines, broken into various miniseries. We’re currently in a 4-part series titled Renewed, in which we are examining what the Bible says about the end times and the eternal state. (If you missed the last two weeks’ messages on Jesus’ second coming and the fate of unbelievers, you can watch or listen to them here.)

Join me in offering up a prayer on Pastor Mike’s behalf, and let’s ask God to continue transforming us into the image of Jesus through the reading and teaching of His Word and through our gathered worship today.

Longing for heaven with you,

Matt Friend • Lead Pastor

P.S. For everyone’s safety, we’ll use the same pre-packaged communion format that we’ve used throughout the pandemic. Be sure to pick up yours at the worship center doors.
