Onward – Roadblocks, Detours, and Delays

Deciding to follow Jesus is like a journey. We are in a five-week series called Onward: Launching into a New Year. By looking at the important elements of a successful journey and then applying that to our walk with Christ, we can learn how to start the new year with a passion to follow Jesus. If we want to reach our destination, we must be intentional about the journey. Today, we will learn more about how we can handle roadblocks, detours, and delays.
