Faith for What's Next
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Because of his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead and into an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you. You are being guarded by God’s power through faith for a salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.
- 1 Peter 1:3-5
The future. Your relationships. Your finances. Viruses. Vaccines. Your job. Your health. The economy. Politics. Our country. Our mental health and well-being. The list is endless and it can not only leave us in fear, it can steal our hope if we let it.
Have you lost hope? Have you forgotten the hope that once burned bright in your life? Do the struggles and challenges of each day seem to overshadow the light of hope in your life? So many have been left paralyzed by the twists and turns of life. But, it doesn’t have to be this way.
There is living hope. An unfading hope. An imperishable hope.
And that hope has a name.
His name is Jesus.
Together, over the next year, we will come face to face with that living hope as we discover...
The Hope of the Gospel,
The Hope of Christ’s Birth,
The Hope of Heaven,
The Hope of Christ In You, and
The Hope of Christ’s Return
Set out on this year-long journey with us, as together, we learn about the living hope that gives each of us the faith for what’s next. Our prayer over the next year is that worship would come alive both personally in our lives, and corporately in our church as we hold tight to the unfading hope of Jesus.
