Burpo family to speak in Holyoke PDF Print E-mail

The First United Methodist Church of Holyoke is very blessed and excited to host an evening with guest speaker Todd Burpo and family to share their son, Colton, and his “Heaven is for Real” experience on Sunday, April 3, at 6:30 p.m. at the Holyoke High School auditorium.  
The public is invited to this presentation.
“Heaven is for Real” is the true story of the four-year old son of a small town pastor from Imperial, who during emergency surgery slips from consciousness and enters heaven.  Now, Colton has a message to share, “Heaven is for Real.”
The book has been on the New York Times best seller list since November and in January reached the number one ranking for nonfiction paperback books.
“Heaven is for Real” has received some impressive reviews.  Author, Dr. Everett Pieper shares, “Todd Burpo gives us a wonderful gift as he and his son lift the veil on eternity, allowing us a quick glimpse of what lies on the others side.”  Author Ron Hall shares, “A beautifully written glimpse into heaven that will encourage those who doubt and thrill those who believe.”
Burpo said that he loves the way his mom sums it up: “Ever since this happened,” she told me, “I think more about what it might really be like in heaven.  I accepted the idea of heaven before, but now I visualize it.  Before, I’d heard, but now I know that someday I’m going to see.”
Please come for a most powerful message and rewarding evening on April 3. For further information call the church at 970-854-2433.
