Dear Hope Church,
Each season of Advent reminds us of “the thrill of hope.” Although our desires and longings are not completely and finally met on this side of heaven, we wait with eager anticipation for the Second Coming of Christ, when he will come in grace and glory to make all things new, once and for all (Rev. 21:5).
We are beginning a new series in the Gospel of John. If you have a few moments, take time to read and meditate on John’s prologue, verses 1-18, and ask God to use this season to increase your hope and fill you with “comfort and joy.”
I am also thrilled that we will officially install David as our Senior Pastor this Sunday evening, 4:00pm. Please make plans to join us for the service, as well as the dinner afterwards (with catering from Little Richard’s), as we celebrate with David, Margaret Ann, Mary Gray, Sam, and Lewis!
