“Looking For HOPE”
There are four themes that guide us through the Advent season: Hope, Love, Joy and Peace. The Hope Candle is used to teach about the prophecy of the Lord's first coming. Centuries of Hope and prayer are fulfilled with the birth of the baby in Bethlehem. Hope is like a light shining in a dark place. As we look at the light of the first Advent candle we celebrate the Hope we have in Jesus Christ. May we instill Hope's challenge in the hearts of our children, grandchildren and all who will come after us that they, too, will live in awe of the power of the promise. May your heart be filled with Hope this Advent - Christmas season.
