Have you ever lost something and found it, but as you tried to grab it, discovered that it was just outside of your reach? Perhaps your cell phone got stuck between the front seat and console. You see it, you can almost feel it, but as you reach for it, you just can’t quite get ahold of it. How do you respond when you feel like things are just out of your reach?
This experience—this emotion that we can all identify with—launched the Within Reach movement to encourage and challenge you to keep going, keep trying, and keep moving forward.
Within Reach is a community of churches committed to reaching the Omaha metro with a message of the outrageous love of Jesus. Together, through Christ, let us help you discover that love, hope, and joy are all within reach. We want to invite you on this journey to learn about the movement, connect with a community, and find your place among us.
To create awareness of the Within Reach movement, we have launched a fun, interactive campaign to spread the word! We want to engage people to think about and verbalize what is "Within Reach" for their lives and share that on social media to stir up the faith of their personal community.
Here is what you can do!
- Find the white marker board with the words, " ______ is Within Reach" at your local Within Reach church (if you don't go to one of the affiliate churches make your own sign!)
- Write what you're trusting God for in the blank (for example, raising Godly kids, finding a job, graduating high school, change, unity, etc.)
- Take a picture with the whiteboard
- Upload it to social media with the hashtag #WithinReach2018
- You did it!
See the instructional video for more details. We look forward to seeing what you're trusting God for and experience how we can all come together throughout our city and beyond!
Uncompromising love is within reach, unprecedented compassion is within reach, and authentic community is within reach. Find a church near you to learn more and get involved!
