Christian hope, especially in uncertain times, is cause for celebration! This unique service for the turning of the year celebrates our promised future in heaven’s light, which gives us both courage and mission in this dark world. Hymns include “Abide With Me,” “God Who Made the Earth and Heaven” and “O God, Our Help in Ages Past.” Readings from Isaiah 35, 1 Thessalonians 5 and John 7 emphasize hope and trust in God’s presence.
Kit includesprayers, a sermon, a children’s message, Scripture readings, newsletter/bulletin notices and music as well as a CD-ROM (Mac/PC) with the text of the entire kit in .rtf (rich text format), a list of contemporary music song suggestions and a PowerPoint document of the entire service with images and text (along with a copyright release) for use on screens. Kits not returnable.
