It had only been a few days, but it seemed like an eternity. As they approached the tomb, they realized that something was wrong. The stone was rolled away. As…

Faith Is Hope

Today, Pastor Wayne explores the link between faith and hope. The text is 1 Peter 3:8-22. As we face the world in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we need to realize that in faith there is hope. This hope is built on our faith in Jesus and the love of God that is expressed through Jesus to us. Hold on to that hope. Let that hope spur you on to live as Jesus has called us to live: as people…
