We live in a world so desperate for hope! Everywhere, there is disappointment, division, and destruction. But, there is also hope! The apostle Paul wrote to the Christians in Colosse about a great mystery that God had revealed, “Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27). Through and in Jesus Christ, God offers a hope that is beyond compare! It is a sure hope, one surpassing anything else we can imagine or desire in this life. It will never fade or fail. It can be fully trusted upon, believed in, and waited for. And, it will change our lives if and when we diligently pursue and rejoice in it.
Are you desperate for hope? Come, let us find hope together!
On Sunday mornings, from 9:30 - 10:10am, we will explore this hope that comes through Jesus Christ. You can attend in person at our building and online at our Website (see the home page). If you have a Facebook account, you can also join in our weekly conversation about hope at our Facebook Group page: Rejoicing in Hope
