Welcome back. You belong here.

What a year! 2016 has been a rough one, David Bowie, Prince, the election, San Bernardino, did I mention the election? Syria, Ferguson, at least Pokemon GO was fun!

Where is the hope? 

Our hope is in the Lord. He will wipe away every tear from your eyes.
Text: 
Revelation 21:1-17

1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. 2 And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 

3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, ‘‘Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. 4 He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.’’

A bad year is an opportunity to grieve and to rise as one, to come together as the Church, to preach this message of hope to a lost and dying world.

My question for you is: Do you know the Jesus who will wipe away every tear?
