Each ministry year, we have a new year theme. It’s purpose is to help us concentrate on a central idea in the Scriptures over a year’s time.
2020-2021 year theme is:
Hold Fast means to cling tightly to convictions about Christ in mind and heart and will. Many people feel tossed to and fro by the winds and waves of doctrines and life right now. Jesus is our hold fast. And Jesus holds fast to us.
Our theme verse, hand painted and hung in our worship center is:
Let us hold fast to the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. Hebrews 10:23.
The phrase HOLD FAST is used 36 times in the Bible, most of which are an urgent call to HOLD FAST because of who we know Jesus to be.
Life as Christians can feel like a stampede is running the opposite direction of Christ. We are tempted in every way to hold on to things that consistently fail us. So we aim to HOLD FAST to Jesus, God’s Word, one another, and to help others HOLD FAST to Jesus as well.
This year, we will be studying the books of Hebrews, Ruth and Joel as well as multiple HOLD FAST passages throughout our Bibles.
Lord willing, as a result this time next year, we will…
-Be stronger knowing Jesus holds fast to us.
-Reason that holding fast to Jesus makes sense.
-Stop holding what is holding us back.
-Have our hopes set in the Lord.
Excited for another great year ahead!
