First Sunday in Advent Church Letter or Welcome – Hope

Greetings in Jesus the King!

Welcome! Today is the first Sunday in the Advent season. Can you think of some of the Biblical themes of this season? Certainly, the love and faithfulness of God our Father is high up there, but have you ever considered the idea of hope? Although it may not be the first thing that comes to mind during the Christmas season, there is much to consider.

In fact, hope is a very prominent theme in Advent. The anticipation of the coming Messiah is always in light of the hope we have in his return. Just as the Israelites hoped for their deliverance, we too look forward to the final deliverance, his return in glory where he will create a new heavens and a new earth. As the prophet Isaiah proclaims:


Second Sunday in Advent Church Letter or Welcome – Faith

Greetings in Jesus the King!

Hebrews 11:6 (NKJV) 6 But without Faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.


Fourth Sunday in Advent Church Letter or Welcome – Peace

Greetings in Jesus!

Welcome! We are inching ever closer to Christmas day, the day that we celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, the light of the world. We are coming to that realization that God is in our midst. As the prophet says:

The Lord, your God, is in your midst, a mighty Savior; He will rejoice over you with gladness, and renew you in His love, He will sing joyfully because of you, as one sings at festivals.  Zephaniah 3:17

The fourth week in Advent is traditionally the week of peace. Christians often refer to Jesus as the “Prince of Peace,” and the Psalms are full of references to God bestowing peace upon his people, as the Psalmist writes:
