Choose to Lose Sponsored Challenge

On the weekend of 12th February, our young people are taking part in the Open Doors, CHOOSE TO LOSE SPONSORED CHALLENGE. They are going to go without something they love for a day, a weekend, or even longer. This might be their phones, x-box, or even chocolate! They are doing this because at least 360 million Christians around the world have lost things they love because of their faith in Jesus. That’s one in every 7 Christians on the planet. Some have lost family, friends, safety and freedom. Yet they choose to follow Jesus despite the fear of arrest, prison, rejection, threats, violence and death. So, by losing something we love just for a short time, we are standing alongside our Christian brothers and sisters. We would love you to support us in this challenge in two ways. Firstly, please pray for those in countries around the world, who are facing persecution. And secondly, please consider donating to our challenge. You can do this by adding to the bucket at the back of church or by donating online at the following link: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/sjslchoose-to-lose?utm_source=Sharethis&utm_medium=fundraising&utm_content=sjslchoose-to-lose&utm_campaign=pfp-email&utm_term=34ac24e36cc348d1948afb3306536807
