An Advent of Hope
The past year has given us many reason for despair. But Advent is a season to renew our hope. It’s a time of waiting in hope for something we cannot yet see or even imagine.
Christian hope is more than optimism or wishful thinking that things will get better. As we wait for Jesus to enter our lives anew this Advent, let’s prepare our hearts to receive this hope and to share it with others.

Join us on Zoom on Wednesday nights for this four week Advent series as together we explore what it
means to:
• Hear Hope
• See Hope
• Share Hope
• Proclaim Hope
