True Love Waits
True Love Waits
The Journey Church sponsored True Love Waits. This evening was about purity and the commitment to wait. About 150 teens and adults sacrificed their bodies to Christ and with support and admiration from family and friends they vowed to remain sexually pure from this night until their wedding night.

The church resembled a wedding reception with the round tables, turquoise table clothes and vases of pure white feathers. This indeed was an important step in their lives and many received rings as a symbol of their commitment.

Becky DeBerry, student pastor at The Journey Church, had trouble at times holding back her emotions throughout the evening. The music by Paula Sellek was stunning, and the live drama presentation, “I Had Sex”, performed by Doug Duggan and Destiny DeBerry will have you laughing out loud until the end.

Participants were presented certificates affirming their commitment to live a life of sexual purity at The Journey Church. The reciting of the vows followed the ring presentation and it was indeed an emotional highlight of the evening surrounded by presentations of skits, music and a reception that followed.

Romans 12:1-2 – “Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God – this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will.”

If you have not been to The Journey Church, I highly recommend you attend one of their three, identical and convenient, Sunday services (9:15 AM, 11:15 AM and 6:15PM). You may find the extended family you have been searching for!
