The Meaning of Life

During our weekend services, August 1st – September 5th, we’ll explore Ecclesiastes and the ultimate meaning of life. We’ll discuss five key themes in the book which can shape how we live a life of meaning and purpose today.

What happens when we seek ultimate meaning outside of relationship with the Creator God? What happens when we’re desperate for the answers to life but can seem to find none? What happens when our souls get wearied from the constant pursuit of pleasure and possessions? These are enormous questions of life and meaning that Ecclesiastes grapples with in the timeless complexity and messiness of reality. Ultimately, the ancient philosopher recalibrates our hearts, minds, and lives to pursue ultimate meaning in the Ultimate God because God alone holds the key to the meaning of life.

August 1: “The Meaning of Life” (Ecclesiastes 12:1-14) explores the theme of meaning & purpose

August 8: “Chasing the Wind” (Ecclesiastes 1:1-18) explores the theme of the brevity of life

August 15: Summer Sunday at the Farm

August 22: “Back in the Box” (Ecclesiastes 2:1-11; 5:10-6:12) explores the theme of money & possessions
