An Olympic Faith

P1050209This past Sunday we began a new sermon series, “An Olympic Faith.” We talked about what it involves to train for the Olympics and thus what it also means as Christians as we train in our faith under our amazing Coach Jesus. The Merrimac Praise Band led worship music and Julie created another wonderful altar display for the series.

More About the Series:  This winter, the attention of the entire world turns to Russia as our greatest athletes gather to compete in the 2014 Winter Olympic Games. For these athletes, journeys filled with years of dedication, training and perseverance bring them to the glory of Olympic competition. The scriptures are filled with Olympic terms and metaphors urging us to use the commitment of an athlete to be what God would have us to be. Join us at the PortChurch for a fun sermon series offering lessons from ancient and modern Olympic athletes for our journeys of faith.
