The theme for all of the UYC Camps this year has been "Race to Your Crown." This sermon message builds on that theme from a congregational perspective, building on three points we find in Hebrews 12:1-2. It reflects on the goal, the obstacles and the encouragement to run with endurance, knowing that we are running the race together.
