Pursuit of Happiness

The topic of happiness has become somewhat controversial in evangelical circles.  We correctly understand that health and wealth may not be in the cards for every Christian; suffering is a very real part of our lives.  With this realization some of us have rejected the notion that God is at all concerned about out happiness.  Yet at the same time we pursue happiness, because it's what we really want out of life.  So there's this tension in the life of modern-day Christians.  We shun happiness with one hand and grasp for it with the other.  So what should we make of our pursuit of happiness?  Should we be ashamed of it?  Should we embrace?   What does God really want for us?  Paul addresses these questions and much more in his epistle to the Philippians.  We cordially invite you to join on Sundays at 10 AM for our winter sermon series entitled The Pursuit of Happiness. We'll take an honest look at what we really want out of life - and what God wants for us.
