New Sermon Series

“Rediscovering God’s Joy in Challenging Times”

Messages for a New Journey of Joy

Rejoice in the Lord always! Philippians 4:4

…for the joy of the Lord is your strength. Nehemiah 8:10

During this time of uncertainty, fear, and turmoil, God’s word and presence can provide joy in our lives. During our new sermon series “Rediscovering God’s Joy in Challenging Times”, we invite you to hear more about one of the important fruits of the Spirit, “joy.”

* If you are looking for spiritual refreshment, come, experience the joy of God!

* If you want to live a new dimension of your spirituality, come, Jesus has a gift for you!

* If the challenges of life are overwhelming and you need extra courage and determination to face them, come, get a boost from God!

* If you think that there is little or no hope for the world and you want to do something about it, come, participate in God’s work!

* If you feel that your spiritual energy is waning and you need motivation, come, experience God’s power!

This is the time to rediscover God’s joy in your heart. The Bible says, for the joy of the Lord is your strength! Join us and experience First Church’s messages for a new journey of joy!
