So much to cover & so little time. 1 Corinthians has been as if we were reading the history books of the American church – yet it was not us.

This is our 5th Sunday event, Family Integrated QnA Service. We have kids & adults ask questions live and then we answer them!
If you’ve listened to the teachings at Rise Chapel for any period of time, you’ve heard the phrase, “the bible is not written TO us but FOR us” That statement forces the student of the scriptures to seek out more than just a personal, feel-good quote but to dig out what is really in the verses being studied. Today’s question prompts that method to be discussed. Want to get more out of your bible today? Check out this QnA Sunday!
If you were told that a fire was coming – would you pack all that matters to you in a cardboard box or a fire-safe? Of course a fire safe! What about our life in heaven?

Have you ever had someone say, “Oh my gosh, you are so immature!” Sometimes we feel good because we know we bothered someone – but other times it hurts. We want to feel like we are advancing in life.
