God of the Sunrise: Why I Think You're Running

Nov 21, 2022

We’re wrapping up our series on hope with the third and final part of God of the Sunrise. Pastor Eric brings a phenomenal message about Jesus restoring Peter after failure–this was a word in season for us all! Throughout this series, we’ve been talking about the big idea of hope and we’re reminded that no matter what we face, no matter how dark the night may seem, the sun will always rise because He is the God of the Sunrise, the God of hope. 

Romans 15:13 (NKJV) Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. 

In Why I Think You’re Running, we’re learning about the ways we can find hope even in the midst of our own failure. We’re exploring how we deal with failure in our own lives and discovering how to find hope even in that place of defeat.

We received 3 thoughts of encouragement from God’s word in Hold On to Hope.

God of the Sunrise: The Reason for Our Hope

Nov 07, 2022

We’re kicking off our brand new mini-series, God of the Sunrise, where we’re learning all about the eternal hope we have in Jesus. No matter what we’re walking through, we can abound in hope because we’re never alone! 

In The Reason for Our Hope, we are reminded that we can have hope like an anchor for our souls because of the finished work of the cross, the unchanging character of our God, and the eager expectation of our future in Heaven. 

As human beings, we’ve created, engineered, and invented some pretty incredible things. One thing we will never be able to replicate is the glory and the power and the simplicity and the magnitude of what God does every morning: a unique and beautiful sunrise. 

The sunrise reminds us every morning that the previous day is done and a new day has begun. There’s new opportunities on the horizon; there is hope. Even in the darkest nights, there’s hope because the sun will rise. Our God is the...
