Heaven Is for Real is the true story of the four-year old son of a small town Nebraska pastor who during emergency surgery slips from consciousness and enters heaven. He survives and begins talking about being able to look down and see the doctor operating and his dad praying in the waiting room. The family didn't know what to believe but soon the evidence was clear. Told by the father, Todd Burpo, but often in the boy's own words, the disarmingly simple message is heaven is a real place, Jesus really loves His children and has prepared a place for all who believe in heaven.
Yesterday at Celebration Community Church we passed out a few hundred of these little pamphlets with excerpts from this little boys astounding story of his trip to heaven and back as well as scripture verses highlighting a Christians home in heaven. If you received one of them pass it along to someone who needs to hear part two of our message series next Sunday at C3. If you have not yet seen the movie I urge you to do so while it is still in release. Think about inviting an unchurched friend to go with you and then invite them to come to church with you this Sunday.
Your pastor and partner in ministry,
