In the Old Testament Israel was given two “rests." They had a time of rest, the Sabbaths and they had a place of rest the Promise Land. The writer of Hebrews uses the example of ancient Israel, of those who failed to enter what God had given to them. The writer points out that these Hebrew believers in his day were about to make the same mistake. Even today we see many Christians who aren’t enjoying the rest that God has given, which isn’t a time or a place, but a person. Join us in our study of Hebrews chapter 4 to discover our place of rest.
Where Do We Find Rest?

Superiority of Christ • October 21, 2018 • Paul Mowery
As we begin a new study in the book of Hebrews, we are dealing with Christians that have allowed their priorities to get out of order. Pressure and disappointment were causing some to turn their attention and devotion away from Christ towards other things. The writer of Hebrews begins to lay out how Christ is better than anything that a religious world has to offer. Join us as we receive insight concerning the superiority of Christ.
Expectations and Discipleship • October 28, 2018 • Paul Mowery
Many followers of Christ have had their walk with Christ derailed by painful experiences that have come into their lives. It is easy in those moments to make decisions that are rooted in emotion rather than truth and logic. Frequently those emotions will ultimately take us away from the will of God. Join us as we finish chapter one of Hebrews, to learn how to correct our perspectives.
Why We Drift • November 4, 2018 • Paul Mowery
The great threat to the son or daughter of God is not suddenly finding ourselves in the middle of a moral collapse, but rather finding ourselves slowly drifting from our passion for Christ. The opening verses of Hebrews chapter two are valuable, for they tell us why we drift and how to cure it. Join us in our study as we discover why we are prone to wander from the God who loves us.
