Citizens of Heaven: A Letter to the Philippians

Living in the world today can be difficult and discouraging. The world seems to be falling apart as acts of violence and terrorism abound. Injustices tear at the fabric of humanity. The endeavor to walk in righteousness is mocked by the world and the seeming futility of this pursuit appears to be underscored by the success of the unjust, the greedy, and the self-serving. As we survey the landscape around us, following Christ can seem like a losing game.

But perhaps it is in constantly surveying the landscape around us, in focusing on the here and now, that our perspective is skewed. Join us for the kickoff of our new sermon series “Citizens of Heaven,” as we seek to discover how keeping our eyes fixed on our eternal home, secured for us through Christ, can help us to lead lives of joy, faithfulness, sacrifice, service, and gospel proclamation in the midst of a broken world.

Kickoff Celebration

To celebrate the kickoff of this new series, we also invite you to stick around after our Sunday Gathering on September 11th – we’ll have a couple of San Antonio’s finest food trucks onsite for you to pick up lunch and hang out with us. Look forward to treating yourself to delicious pizza from Stouts Pizza Co. or some gourmet tacos courtesy of Mr. Meximum.

Make your plans now to join us for this celebration and to stick around afterwards. If you plan on joining us, please take a moment to RSVP on Facebook ( or via The City ( And please, feel free to invite a friend – we hope to see you then!
