“BE PREPARED” BIBLE STUDY

What do you say when someone makes a derogatory comment about the Bible or about faith in God?  What do you say when there’s little time?  Glad you asked.  First Congregational Church in Clear Lake is doing a 3 week Wednesday morning study using the DVD “Prepared” from Andy Stanley.  This study will start Wednesday October 10th at 10 AM and will run for 3 Wednesdays. Session 1 will inform you of what to say when you don’t have a lot of time.  Session 2 will talk about why we take the Bible seriously.  Session 3 will answer the question of why do bad things happen to good people.  You can come to 1 of them or all of them.  Cabin coffee will be served.  First Congregational Church is located at 923 Buddy Holly Place.

What will Heaven Be Like?

What Will
Heaven Be Like?
 

by Pastor Harlan Seri

Clear LakeFirst Congregational Church

Many people pick up wrong ideas about what Heaven is going to be like.  Some people feel that Heaven is going to be boring—kind of like a l-o-n-g church service where a pastor speaks for 200 hours straight, then you sing some really slow hymns for another 800 hours.  Finally, finally, they let you go sit on a cloud and if you feel like it, you can pick up a harp and start playing.  Sound pretty exciting?  Probably not.
