As the last book of the Bible, “Revelation” is the most famous of all famous last words. Many people have multiple questions about “Revelation” and the end times. In a survey of our congregation, it came out as one of the Bible topics people most want to learn about. Pastor Jack will preach through “Revelation” in a 13 week sermon series, through December 8. Here are a few ways you can expand your understanding and application of the book to your life:

1.) Attend a FUN Group after worship to discuss the sermon. 

2.) Read and pray through the Scripture text for the sermon in the week prior to the message. A list of devotional readings and key verses will be provided in the worship bulletins at the beginning of the series.

3.) Take a couple of hours to read Revelation from beginning to end. Use these two videos on YouTube to give you an overview of the book and help you understand the “big picture.”   (each video is 12 minutes)

  Answer these questions on your own:

  1. Who or what are the main characters in this drama?
  2. What is the emotional or spiritual tone of the vision?
  3. What patterns (numerical, visual or thematic) do you find in Revelation?
  4. What riddles and puzzles catch your attention?

We had a wonderful “Worship Outside the Walls” experience on July 14.  We worked at the village park, at the baseball field, made care packages for the village firemen, and painted out neighbor’s house.
