Paul's Letters to the Thessalonian Church

His Perfect Peace

Only through Jesus and His grace can we find perfect peace, enough for all the struggles in our lives.

Kingdom Influence

God’s Love and Faithfulness

Pain alters our sight, but the righteous walk by faith.

The Man of Sin

A look at the end times and the Antichrist through the lens of 2 Thessalonians 2, Daniel, and Revelation. If Jesus, the Living Word of God, will conquer by His Word, a sword, so we, the Body of Christ, should hold fast by the Word of God.

Within the Father’s Family there are critical practices that provide maximum joy. 1 Thessalonians 5:14-18.


June 20, 2021 • Scot Pollok

The Father has designed His Church to love in all directions. 1. Say “Thank You” often, to everyone… 2. Respect the challenges of Church Leadership 3. Share the burden of the Leader 4. Fully engage the mission as a committed Follower 5. Grumble to God a long time before anyone else 1 Thessalonians 5:12-13

The Shape of the Future

June 13, 2021 • Scot Pollok

In our study of Thessalonians, Scot tackles tough questions like: What are the timing and framework of prophetic events? What is the nature and timing of the Millennial Kingdom? What is the relationship of the Rapture to the Tribulation? Believer, live presently in the sure light of future history. 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11

The Dead in Christ

June 6, 2021 • Scot Pollok

Believer, you are not the center of your future. The future waits only on Jesus. Only this focus can offer comfort.

Grief is the Birthplace of Hope

May 30, 2021 • Rick Wilcox

For Christians, grief is the birthplace of hope.

Excellent Love

May 23, 2021 • Scot Pollok

Love for one another and reception of love can be good indicators of spiritual maturity. There is a Jesus way to live out love and live in love. The alternatives are really messy.
