The Hand-Off

In an Olympic 4x 100 relay race the hand-off may determine who wins the Gold Medal. If one of the four sprinters fumbles the baton it may be impossible to recover lost time at the finish line. The hand-off in a relay race is the critical moment.

In estate planning it is vital to make wise investments in order to have healthy, consistent growth in your savings and retirement portfolio. Those who reach retirement age ready to hand-off duties to others may discover a need to work longer. Unprepared for higher inflation costs or poor returns on investments can result in fewer resources. In our careers the hand-off moment to retirement may be delayed postponed.

This weekend at Journey Community Christian Church we take a look again in the Bible at examples of people like us, wanting to renew their faith. How are you doing? Have you considered refreshing your faith? Maybe helping your kids do the same? We would love to partner with you and your family at Journey Church?

I don’t want to seem nosy, but may I ask you a question? Are you regular in our church family gathering most weekends? Sometimes, I know, it is just a scheduling issue. Other times, we may need to develop a sense of urgency like our in-laws are coming to town.

Growing faith and keeping things moving forward is a lot like house cleaning. Everyone knows our house needs straightening up a little after a busy day/week. Sometimes though we let things go because we are so busy. If you are a procrastinator maybe fall is a great time to grab the vacuum and dust buster. Before the holidays might also be a great time to get back with your church family. Just saying.

Here is the theme verse for our current series, FAITHFUL, The only way to really make God happy is to have a healthy, active faith. And then hand-off faith to the next generation. Linger on this theme verse below, word by word for a few moments. Let God speak to you regarding faith in your family.

“And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely see him.” Hebrews 11:6

This weekend at Journey Church we dive into the story of JOASH in 2 Kings 11 & 2 Chronicles 24. Joash became King at age seven. He was influenced by positive people and became a successful and admired leader as a young man. However, as he grew older he no longer listened to spiritual advisors. His legacy and hand-off to the next generation was destroyed forever. The hand-off of faith is a critical moment in the life of every family.

We hope you will join us either Journey Sat@6pm or Sun@10:30am. Invite a friend to be our guest. This may be one of the most important things we accomplish all week long. We are better together. Sometimes people just need a friend.

Let’s do this…. Learning to thrive by renewing our faith… Go God!
