Going for the Gold
July 24 – August 21

This summer, the attention of the entire world turns to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil,  as our greatest athletes gather to compete in the 2016 Olympic Games. For these athletes, journeys filled with years of dedication, training, and perseverance bring them to the coveted Olympic competition.

The scriptures are filled with Olympic themes and metaphors encouraging followers of Christ to use the  commitment of an athlete to be what God would have us to be.

Join us at FUMC Allen this month for a fun sermon series that offers insight and lessons from ancient and modern Olympic athletes for our journeys of faith.
