Series: The Heavens Declare

Psalm 19:1 tells us that “the heavens declare the glory of God.” But when did you last stop to consider how creation uniquely communicates the goodness of our Creator?

This nine-day series considers how God speaks to us through the heavens by tracing God’s message of covenant love for his people as told through the night sky from Genesis to Revelation. Throughout the story of Scripture, we meet a cast of biblical characters who received a special revelation or promise of God with the night sky as the scroll upon which God’s faithfulness was written.

While dwelling in their stories, we will discover the ways in which God’s promised faithfulness to them is our story too. God still reveals himself in the heavens, and the heavens still declare God’s glory. God’s faithfulness in the Bible is the same faithfulness he shows to you.
