Refuge Youth: Judgment Journey
Oct

Refuge Youth: Judgment Journey


About this Event

Judgment Journey is an experience you will never forget!

Since 1997, Faith Baptist Church in LaGrange creates a walk through experience of End Times events as recorded in the book of Revelation. These events are creatively interpreted (similar to the "Left Behind" books and movies), and presented in a 45 minute multi-sensory presentation.

Judgment Journey was never intended to be a "scary" event. But there is disturbing content as the experience is built upon the idea of a raptured church and a time of tribulation and great trouble upon the earth.

Our 7th-12th Grade Youth will be traveling to Lagrange on the evening of October 19th. We will arrive 30mins prior to our "walk-time". The Cost of the event is $18 (includes $ to help with a van rental). Plan to bring extra money if you want drinks/snacks or t-shirts.

Time slots for this event sell out quick! We had to pre-purchase our tickets over a month in advance. We secured 18 tickets for our time slot.

Darkness 2 Light Training


About this Event

SIGN UP AT EVENTBRITE

Darkness to Light offers training that specializes in the education and prevention of child sexual abuse, other forms of abuse, and mandated reporting. Stewards of Children, the flagship program, teaches adults how to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse.

1 out of 10 children will be sexually abused before they turn 18. Chances are, someone you know has been impacted. Research shows that people who are sexually violated as children are far more likely to experience psychological problems often lasting into adulthood, including post-traumatic stress syndrome, depression, suicide, substance abuse, teen pregnancy, school dropout and relationship problems.

Darkness to Light understands that learning the facts about childhood sexual abuse helps prevent it. Talking about it helps prevent it. Getting involved helps prevent it. The truth is, if childhood sexual abuse can be prevented, it can be stopped.

If you have a desire to serve in any capacity with children/teens at the Church of Joy, the Darkness to Light: Stewards of Children training is mandatory.
