As we approach the end of another year, we are grateful to God for his sustaining mercies, his sovereign purposes, and the reassurance of his covenant promise that he is with us. For many, the new year can be a time of mixed emotions as one remembers a year filled with blessing and trial, celebration and loss. As the Scriptures teach us, we are not without hope. Our hope is neither fleeting nor vain. Our hope is grounded in the gospel of God. We have a Savior who has risen from the dead and has entered into the heavenly temple as the Lamb of God and great high priest who intercedes for his own.
The hope that we have is a hope that impacts our every day and stretches beyond the grave. This is because the God of hope is with us in Christ, his promises are true, and he is faithful to his word. He comforts us in our suffering, and he empowers us in our witness of him to those around us. And it’s in this light that we gather together on New Year’s Eve as God’s people to pray, to worship, and to feed upon Christ in the Lord’s Supper.
Please join us this New Year’s Eve to worship our sovereign and good God, to cry out in prayer for our city, nation, and church, and to sup at the Lord’s table in communion and be strengthened in grace.
Our New Year’s Eve Communion service will be in the sanctuary and will be held 6:30pm through 7:30pm. Find more details here.
