On the first Sunday of Advent, we begin a new message series. This season we will explore hope, peace, joy, and love. These are the designations for the four candles on the Advent Wreath. Today, Pastor Phil opens up 1 Peter 1:3-7 where we discover a living hope in Jesus Christ.
Hope is alive because it was born in Bethlehem and raised from the dead on Easter Sunday. This hope gives us the ability to endure the trials and challenges of life.
