Ordinary Time 2022
The time between Pentecost and Advent
June 12 - November 20
In the two letters to the Thessalonians, we have a glimpse into one of the very earliest Christian congregations that formed around the gospel of Jesus Christ. In these letters, the Apostle Paul encourages the new believers, addresses their questions, and teaches them how to conform their lives to the gospel.
Three words resound in Thessalonians, which both define their fledgling community, and set the standard for it: faith, love, and hope. They are themes that continue to shape our life together as a church today. The symbol above represents all three words in one image: the cross for faith, the heart for love, and the anchor for hope.
Throughout the fall, sermons will cover these two letters one or two dozen verses at a time. A guided weekly study is available for small groups to use for discussion and personal growth. Click/tap here for the study.
