Does your church use an annual theme?  Our church has chosen 2012 to focus on HOPE!  I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a hopeless generation… teenagers, marriages, and even churches.  Our God is the “God of Hope” (Rom. 15:13).  Jesus Christ saved us to be a hopeful people (1 Pet. 1:3, 13). So let us pray the prayer of David: Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.  Psalm 43:5   > Other resources: 2012 “Hope in God” Music Video [YouTube]  |  Bible-size Calendar [PDF]  |  Bulletin Shells [PDF]
