"Pain to Purpose" this Sunday 10:30a.m. Ever wonder why we have so much pain? (In person or on our YouTube or Facebook page)


SERMON: What purpose does pain bring?

Pain to Purpose part 2

We all experience pain, and even suffering at some time in

our lives. While our natural reaction to pain is to avoid it, get rid of it, or

numb it; we need to realize that God allows pain. In fact, our suffering is a

sign of God's love. 


Whether you’re going through something

big or small, pain is an ever-present constant in your life. But you never have

to struggle with finding a purpose behind your pain. Take comfort and solace in

the timeless words of James 1:2-4, and discover the purpose behind your pain.

“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of

many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces

perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and

complete, not lacking anything” (James 1:2-4, NIV).


Join us THIS Sunday, June 12 as we continue to unpack the purpose

behind your pain.


None of us are strangers to sadness, pain, shock, or difficult times. Since sin entered the world and destroyed life as it was meant to be, all of these things have become a part of our realities on this side of heaven. The question is, how do we respond when life gets us down? What does it look like to live faithfully in the middle of adversity?

Join us this Sunday as we explore what purpose our pain can bring.

This week’s take-a-way:

God knows you're in pain, but he also knows there's something in there that he wants to birth out of you, and that is the manifestation of the life of Christ, a new experience with God that you would not have without the affliction.

How will this change your perspective to your pain? ____________________________________
