As our fellowship sets out to be a faithful family rooted in faith, hope, and love, we begin our study of the apostle Paul’s letter to the church in Thessalonica. Held up in his letter as a model church, we can learn a lot from their fellowship. Paul and Silas spent three weeks getting this church going before he had to leave. What would people remember about us if they spent three weeks with us? Paul recounts their work with faith, labor of love, and endurance by hope.
