"Better Days Ahead:
Hope, Anticipation, and the Coming of Christ"
December 3-24

This has been a difficult year for the world and its people. Natural disasters have struck, as have acts of unspeakable violence. However, as Paul writes to the church at Thessalonica, those of us who believe are not "to grieve as a people without hope," for we are not only hopeful people but expectant people because God has come into the world in Jesus of Nazareth. This sermon series is an invitation to enter anew into this hope and expectation as we remember together what it means for the messiah to come to us.
