This spring we are digging into Paul's 1st letter to the Thessalonians. This epistle is a picture of a church captured by the hope that was cemented in them when they first met Jesus. No matter the trial, hardship, persecution, or death — we see a picture of a church that is called to continue to live forward in joyful expectation for what God will do next in Jesus. We get a glimpse of the type of hope that we can fully know when we live our lives in relationship with Jesus, who’s promises are secure and who has promised to return and one day make all things new! So this spring we look to see how Paul’s letter to this church can call our church to be transformed and encouraged to live by Hope in Jesus!
