PROCLAIM:

2018 Theme

1 John 1:1-40

"What was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we have looked at and touched with our hands, concerning the Word of Life- and the life was manifested, and we have seen and testify and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was manifested to us- what we have seen and heard we proclaim to you also, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and in deed our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ. These things we write, so that our joy may be made complete.”

Our faith is not just something in our heads, it is something we can see, it is something we can touch, it is something we can hear. What a gift to experience our faith through all of our senses! What are we called to do with this gift of faith that we experience? We are called to PROCLAIM it, so that our journey may be complete!
