Core Challenge 2019

Core Challenge

It's time for another Core Challenge!

The theme for this year's Core Challenge is...

Overcoming Sin and Temptation

Our speaker this year is Lincoln Fitch, who serves with DiscipleMakers on the Albright College campus in Reading, PA. LincolnFitch

Christians are called to be holy because God is holy. But, too often we do not take this call very seriously. “I do not understand,” John Owen states, “how a man can be a true believer unto whom sin is not the greatest burden, sorrow, and trouble.” Yet, too often our sins trouble us very little. Christians are people who must live at war with the sins of the flesh. Christians are people who labor day by day to live in a way that pleases God. Core Challenge this year is all about how we can live that way. It is about how Christians by Christ’s power become more like Christ.

The Core Challenge is not for everyone. It is only for men and women (high school through college age) who have a passion to know God better. We will unpack Christ’s call to holiness, we’ll consider the disturbing reality of sin, and the gospel hope we have to grow in holiness. So join us on April 13 for Core Challenge for an action packed day that is designed to help deepen your relationship with God.
