Our 2017 church theme is from Apostle Paul's closing thoughts to the church at Thessalonica (Thessaloniki) in Greece (Thessanians 5:14-22):
And we urge you, brothers, admonish the idle, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with them all. See that no one repays anyone evil for evil, but always seek to do good to one another and to everyone. Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies, but test everything; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil.
We are urged to be joyful always, pray continually and give thanks in all circumstances. Presentation (PDF)
