Advent Week I: The Glories of Heaven and The Return of Christ

In the early church, advent was a time to celebrate the first coming of Christ, but also to prepare for His return. The Advent series will explore the glories of heaven -- its realities, promises and rewards -- as well as the imminent return of Jesus Christ. Who we are and how we live today matters because our journey into eternity, towards God or away from Him, begins here on earth.

  • Scripture used: Heb 11:1-16; Rev 7:9-17

  • Meaningful conversation starter: What were some of the images or ideas about heaven you’ve had as a child or young adult? How has the bible helped to change those ideas?
