Have you ever wondered what it must have been like to be Joseph. A poor man engaged to be married and then his whole life is turned up-side-down. The message will explore some of that and what it means to us.
What does true Christian humility look like? Some put on a good show of showing everyone how humble they are. Jesus said “That will be their only reward.” True Christian humility is the subject we’ll explore this week as we continue to look at Zachariah’s encounter with heaven.

Last week we talked about the most important day in human history. This week it’ll be most important day in eternity. All Saints’ Day is a day of joy and sadness. Sadness remembering those no longer with us. Joy because God has promised we will not be separated from Him forever.
