Pastor Mike will be our teacher this week and will share on the theme, The Dawn of Salvation. What does it mean to have hope? We live in a culture that often feels more hopeless than hopeful. The Biblical story of Simeon and Anna reveals a faith that stands strong in the face of difficult times. They lived for the moment when they would finally witness Jesus being brought to the temple for dedication. As we anticipate the new year, may we find our hope in God’s story that is unfolding all around us. May we celebrate His salvation that has come to grant us hope in the midst of the hopeless.
