About Heaven :: Revelation

Presented at Curwensville Alliance Church on December 29, 2019 by Pastor Steve Shields

Why we’re moving to the city.

How much do you know about the afterlife? And where do you get your data?

There is no shortage of opinion regarding the afterlife. The difficulty is that opinion won’t get you real far. My opinion and $1.99 will get me a coffee — sometimes.

If I want to know what heaven is like, then it would be sensible to look to God — the Maker of heaven and earth. He speaks extensively about eternity and about heaven.

This podcast takes a look at Revelation 22 and outlines a bit of what is waiting for us in heaven — and what is not.

The God Who Came to Launch :: Advent

Presented at Curwensville Alliance on 12/22/2019 by Pastor Steve Shields

When you tell someone that you go to church, do you ever consider what that means to them? The answer to that question largely depends on how the view the church.

And how one views the church depends on what you think God came to launch.

In this Christmas podcast, Pastor Steve addresses what God came to launch — and what it means to you and me.

The God Who Came to Proclaim :: Advent

Presented by at Curwensville Alliance on 12/15/2019 by Pastor Steve Shields

If I said to you, “God came to love,” you’d know what I mean.

If I said to you, “God came to reach,” you’d probably know what I mean.

But if I said to you, “God came to proclaim,” what would you think I meant?

That’s what this Advent Podcast explains today.

The God Who Came to Love :: Advent

Presented at Curwensville Alliance Church on 12/8/2019 by Pastor Steve Shields — the Second Sunday of Advent

If Christmas speaks of anything, it should speak of love.

But what is love?

While our world spends a lot of time talking, singing, and writing about love, it often misses the mark that God establishes.

In this Advent podcast, Pastor Steve looks at Mary’s fiance, Joseph and uncovers the love of God in this carpenter.

The God Who Came to Reach :: Advent

Presented by Pastor Steve Shields at Curwensville Alliance on 12/1/2019 – the First Sunday of Advent

One of the most important concepts in Christian faith is that God wants us to know him — personally.

That’s a key reason that he came in the flesh. So that he could be one of us. So we could know him and he us.

This podcast explains how he knows us and how we can know him more deeply.
