Justice & Spirituality Conference 2018

Thanks to everyone who joined us for Rainier Avenue Church's second Justice & Spirituality Conference!

“Perseverance” (Hebrews 12:1-3)

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
