Not Giving In & Not Giving Up
Don’t Quit! You have probably heard this from someone in your life at some point. Maybe it was not quitting on an athletic or academic endeavor, or maybe it was trying to lose some weight. Don’t quit! It can be so hard to not to give up or give in and just quit, and that is true when it comes to being a Christ follower. So many times in our life we think we just can’t make it, we can’t endure what it means to follow Jesus in the world today. Join us for a study on 2 Timothy and learn how you can have endurance to not give up on being a Christ follower.

Help yourself to a card and/or note of encouragement from our Dove Notes display in the back of the gym. Then…
Reach out! From our prayer and praise time.
Reach out! Words of encouragement.
Reach out! To show appreciation.
Reach out! To say I’m just happy to know you.
A small gesture and make a big difference to someone! Send a Dove Note!
