hey yall I sent an email out earlier this week but figured I would post here as well since this is open to not just men at our gym, but men throughout the whole Crossfit community. See below and message me if you are interested so we can make sure we have enough seats. Also if the 28th doesn’t work but you are interested in checking it out, we have already set the next 2 dates. July 12 and July 26 so mark your calendar.
On June 28th, CFR is opening the doors Sunday evening for a new concept on a WOD. The doors will open at 5pm with an opportunity for men to hear a message from Gods word from CFR’s own, pastor Geoff Mitchell.
The “Man Up WOD” will kick off with a short message, follow up with an opportunity for discussion and then jump into a warm up and workout. All are welcome and the WOD will be accessible for all. Crossfitters and non crossfitters alike. Bring a friend that is a non crossfitter or bring a friend that crossfits elsewhere. You don’t have to come at 5 to participate in the wod. Come for the fellowship beforehand or just come for the WOD.
We have currently set the first 3 times we will meet, and we will keep you posted for future meeting times. The first 3 days we are kicking this off are June 28th, July 12th, and July 26th. So mark your calendar!!
What’s it all about?
I have been feeling God put it on my heart to open up our gym as a place where guys can connect with God. Not only am I concerned with getting you fit and strong, but I want to provide the opportunity for guys to find out more with regards to how a relationship with Jesus can really change their life as well. It is something that I have found to be more and more important part of my life the older I get, and I can’t imagine my life without it. I realize that church is a scary place for most guys to go. So we want to bring God to you, and knock down any previous ideas that might be holding you back.
Men, are you interested in spiritual things? Do you want to explore a little deeper into what life’s purpose is? Do you want to be a better husband or dad but don’t really know how? Do you believe in God but feel like there’s no way you are stepping into a church because you might catch on fire??? Maybe you’re interested in what a relationship with God looks like, but don’t really know where to start. Maybe you feel like you have done too much bad stuff. Or maybe you feel like if you go to church, they will just tell you that you can’t have any fun anymore. I have pretty much asked all those questions.
We have the perfect opportunity for you to learn more about this guy Jesus and what he’s all about. Join us Sunday night to listen to a short message from Pastor Geoff Mitchell of Big Life church in Oswego. Geoff is a crossfitter and he regularly attends the 1230 or 4pm class at CFR. His message will be relevant and will add value to your life as a husband, father, and man. If you want stick around and hit a WOD with us after, we will worship through slamming some weights together!
No judgement. No pressure. No obligation. Just a group of guys hanging out and learning about what faith looks like in the real world for men today.
I would like to personally invite all the CFR guys to come hang out. My faith plays a huge part in who I am. I am getting baptized next week as a public display of my commitment to follow Jesus and I’m really excited to continue to grow in my faith. Just like putting in work in the gym to get stronger doesn’t happen overnight, my faith has grown a ton and I’m still nowhere near where I want to be. It’s a life long journey. It’s an awesome ride though. I think these Sunday nights could be a cool thing and Im excited to see where God takes it.
