Strangers in a Strange Land: Finding Hope in 1st Peter

The Parables

Here at La Jolla Pres., we want to see lives transformed through a relationship with Jesus. One way we witness that is by sharing God’s Story, and equipping you to share His story as well. We strive for sermons that are informative, applicable, inviting and transformative.

This fall we are going to be taking a look at the letter of 1 Peter.  The theme of this letter could probably be summed up with 1 Peter 5.12b where Peter writes, “I have written to you briefly, encouraging you and testifying that this is the true grace of God.  Stand fast in it.”  This fall we want to think about how we stand firm in God’s truth.  How do we live as “strangers in a strange land?”  Join us as we talk about how we can “experience” the living hope that has been offered to us in Jesus Christ and how we can “express” that hope to our community and world.
