As we embark on this new year, new challenges are waiting to meet us. For some, those challenges may be discouraging or unwanted; for others, they may be much anticipated and desired. Whatever challenge awaits, one thing you can be sure of is this - God is with you. God says, "Do not be afraid! Be strong! Be courageous! Do not be discouraged! I am with you wherever you go." Join us this morning as we learn to live into God's powerful promise.
