Motto: Lace Up!
Theme Verse: Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us. (Hebrews 12:1, NKJV)
This year, we invite everyone to register for "The Faith Run: On Course with God!" In Hebrews 12, Paul admonished us to run the race of faith set before us, enduring in the faith just as those before us have faithfully done. God has a planned course for each of us and God wants us to finish that course. Our Faith Run with God is not a sprint, but a life marathon that begins with a single yes.
On the journey, we will face many obstacles that we must learn to navigate. The choices we make on course with God will shape and stretch us, but we are hopeful that it will help us be more of who God desires us to be. Although this is not a competitive race, there is a prize for everyone who endures and finishes the race. So, lace up your shoes and join other men and women across the country who are also running The Faith Run!
As a result of experiencing these lessons, participants will
- Learn that entering The Faith Run begins with a willing spirit and a yes!
- Learn that key qualities such as determination, commitment, and loyalty are needed in order to stay the course.
- Learn that in order to finish the race we must know God's Word and keep the faith.
