A Year of Welcome
The last few years have been really difficult. It’s been hard to find hope.
Besides the effects of an ongoing pandemic, there’s the marked increase in racial violence, the effects of climate change wreaking havoc on our ecosystems, mass shootings continuing on the regular, and our bitter political climate is growing more and more divisive. And that’s just on the societal level. Individually, we have struggled with mental health, decisions about work/life balance, stress about safely raising a family, and so much more. You may even be living with an ever-present sense of low-level despair about the state of things.
It is hard to find hope in the world.
This is where we (the church) come in. As followers of Jesus, we know there is always a hope beyond understanding. We know that hope is found in the unconditional love of God. We know that hope shows up in a community that builds each other up. We know that hope is when gather to pray for each other and with each other.
This year, we are embarking on “A Year of Welcome” to spread this good news of hope in our community. It will be a whole church effort through prayer, invitation, welcome, worship, and study.
For the last 100 years we have worked to be a beacon of light for our community, and our rich history is the foundation that we will build upon for this next season of ministry together. Together we will grow our amazing, hopeful, and hope-filled community.
