People feel hopeless. Jobs, finances, workloads, relationships, and other stresses are pushing many people to a breaking point crushing them emotionally, physically, mentally, and spiritually.
What can we do?
As hopeless as things may seem for you or for those around you, there is a way of escape. On Sunday mornings over the next few weeks (April 28, May 5, 19, 26) join us for a special sermon series on being Hopefilled. Throughout these lessons we’ll see how God gave Israel the strength to overcome their giants and learn how Jesus gives us the strength to overcome our giants today.
Many in our world feel hopeless. Though the process isn’t easy, we do not have to resign to living in hopelessness the rest of our lives. Jesus gives us the strength to overcome. He gives us the ability to move from hopeless to hopefilled.
