WEEK FOUR: KEEP RUNNING (Part Two)

Ready for the Olympics?

Over the next couple of weeks, hundreds of elite athletes will compete in the Olympic Games for a gold medal. Admittedly, there are so many different events, and it can be a little overwhelming to decide which events to watch.

Perhaps the most popular viewing events of the Olympics are in the arena of track and field. We are drawn to watch who will become labeled the fastest man and the fastest woman in the world. Fans are also captivated by who can run the fastest mile and who will cross the finish line first in the grueling marathon race covering 26 miles on the city streets and countryside of Paris. And who doesn’t get excited about watching the 4 X 4 relays and hurdle races? American runners tend to do very well in Olympic track and field events.

Each athlete competing in the games has spent four or more years in strict training and when it comes to the day of their competition they know and do certain things which will give them what they need to compete and finish strong.

In Hebrews chapter 12 of the New Testament, the author compares our lives to a race and points out some things that runners and followers of Jesus know and do to persevere and run the race God has set before us.

Join us this Sunday at Journey’s Crossing as we unpack four truths from Hebrews 12:1-2 which runners know and do which will help us persevere in the areas of our lives where we feel like giving up. Our former Outreach Pastor, Darin Brown is coming back for Part Two of his message called “Keep Running,” as we continue in our Summer message series “My Verse, My Story”. Invite a friend and join us for our 9:15 and 11:15 am services, available both online and in person. Let’s come together to learn how to run the race God has set before us. See you there!

WHAT TO EXPECT

COFFEE

Yeah, we know how important a good-tasting cup of java is. Before and after each worship experience, we serve high-quality, environmentally-friendly coffees, and beverages that are both free and taste good! And get this – you are welcome to bring them with you into the worship experience! So, come a little early and grab a beverage before the fun begins.

SOMETHING UNEXPECTED

Don’t be surprised if you see clips from your favorite movies or television shows, hear a personal story from a person just like you. You’ll always find something unexpected like crowd interaction, comedy, clever object lessons or creative lighting, effects and media because we believe church should be fun to attend and be engaging!

RELEVANT MESSAGES

We think you deserve content that is interesting and engaging. In fact, it should be so practical that you could put it to use even before you leave the building. We learn about things like relationships, work, and careers, finances, power over addictions, forgiveness, life change through Jesus. And yes…even sex! Every week our “talks” are creative, down to earth, funny and memorable and they’ll make a real difference in your life.

KIDS AND TEENS

Your kids and teenagers will also discover stuff that applies to their everyday lives. Creative videos, music they love and they’ll meet real people who care and want to help them find their way through life with God and one another. And there’s even a safe & caring nursery for the littlest ones because we want you to be able to enjoy the morning distraction free and we want them to learn the church can be fun for them as well!

MUSIC YOU’LL ENJOY

Our live band plays a mix of high-energy pop, rock, r&b, hip-hop & gospel as well as reflective tunes that you’ll want to hum all week long. Here’s the best part – our bands sound like music that was written for today! And get this – many weeks they even cover a tune you just heard on the radio by one of your favorite artists! That’s because good music matters and helps to get you thinking about the topic of the day.

COME AS YOU ARE

We don’t have a dress code. We don’t speak in holy jargon that only Christians understand. We don’t expect anyone to be perfect. We’re just ordinary people just like you, warts and all. Authenticity is a big deal to us – it’s exhausting to keep trying to pretend we’ve always got our act together when we don’t. So come and be yourself – no matter what you look like or where you’re from you’ll find other fellow-strugglers just like you.

 Casual. Contemporary.  Family-friendly. Creative. Relevant. Life-changing.
