This is your personal “Journey to Be”

Island #1 – “I need something – healing, connection, meaning, forgiveness, etc.  I have a hole in my life that I haven’t been able to fill on my own.”

Island #2 – “I believe there is a God and I matter to him.  He is what I need to fill the hole in my life.”

Island #3 – “I make the choice to commit my life to the care and control of Jesus”

Island #4 – I will be real with myself, my God and others.  I will surrender my secrets and take off my masks.”

Island #5 – “I will devote myself to learning and growing in my personal relationship with God.  I will surrender to every change that God wants to make in my life.”

Island #6 – “I will strive to understand as opposed to being understood by listening to others with a servant’s heart.  I will offer forgiveness to those who hurt me and I will make amends for the harm I have done to others.”

Island #7 – “I will daily spend time with God for self-examination, Bible reading and prayer.  I desire to know God and his will for my life and to gain the power to follow his will.”

Island #8 – “I will yield myself to God to be used to bring this good news to others, both by my example and by my words.”

We will meet on Sunday nights in Fellowship Hall from 6 – 8pm, starting on Sunday, February 24. We will be studying each one of these islands so J2B requires an eight week commitment. This opportunity includes a meal, large group discussion and homework. Feel free to start J2B on any Sunday night, just make sure you let us know you are coming. Simply go to the “Contacts” page of this site and fill out the information.
