Hope. It’s the one thing we cannot live without. But trying to hold on to hope can take all our strength, particularly when hope’s old enemy, doubt, drags us toward despair. When we are in despair nothing seems to help. We exhaust ourselves trying to sort out God’s reasons for allowing bad things to happen. We need something solid to hold on to! What can we hold on to when life’s storms come crashing in? The better question is, whom can you hold on to?

In his magnificent letter to the Hebrews, the Apostle Paul ushers us into a soaring realm where he highlights the answer: We who have fled to him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us. This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. (Hebrews 6:17-19) This hope . . . leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary. (Hebrews 6:19)

Jesus has already gone in there for us. He has become our eternal High Priest. (Hebrews 6:20)

How great is that! Join Pastor Fred Mast as he offers a message entitled, “An Anchor for Our Soul”. Sunday mornings we enter the spirit of worship at two worship times (9:00am & 10:30am) featuring meaningful and uplifting music, special times of prayer and passionate life changing messages designed to move you closer in your relationship with Jesus Christ and others.

We look forward to seeing you! As we strive to keep our congregation and community safe and healthy, we will observe physical distancing and limited seating worship so visit our website to reserve your seat for worship.

We will continue to also offer an amazing Spirit Filled On-Line Worship experience each week—You are invited to access worship or information through our website (www.sedonaumc.org) or by calling the church office (928-282-1780).
