around The News of CedarCreek.tv / November 2014 November the “For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.” 2 Timothy 1:7 (NLT) What keeps you up at night? FEAR is real! FEAR can stop you dead in your tracks...no matter what you are facing, but God has given you everything you need to not only survive but to thrive. Mark your calendar and invite your family and friends to the FEARLESS series. Special guests live at CedarCreek Church! Patrick Henry Hughes, a multi-instrumental musician that was born without eyes and was unable to straighten his arms and legs. See how Patrick Henry Hughes became a full participating member of a 220-person college marching band. Learn how he takes everyday challenges in stride and seeks opportunities to excel. He has been featured on Oprah, The Ellen Show, Extreme Make Over, The Grand Ole Opry, People Magazine, Sports Illustrated, and many others. At 17, Vitor Belfort moved to the United States, eventually receiving his black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ). By the time Belfort made his 1997 Ulitimate Fighting Championship debut people expected that with a BJJ background he would play the ground game. Instead, fans saw a fighter with some of the fastest and most explosive hands ever. First, Tra Telligman fell via technical knockout (TKO) after 1:17; then Scott Ferrozzo fell the same way after only 43 seconds, giving Belfort a heavyweight tournament win. His first four Mixed Martial Artists victories came by way of TKO in 3:04 combined! Diego Sanchez participated and won The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) reality television show in June of 2002. During his time there, he gained a reputation as a “Somewhat off the beaten path and highly spiritual character” for being very vocal about his faith. There was no doubt from day one that he was one of the favorites to win the show. He defeated Alex Karalexis, Josh Rafferty, Josh Koscheck, and finally Kenny Florian in the TUF 1 Finale to take home the TUF 1 crown. He started his career with 11 straight victories, several which came before TUF 1 and the UFC came calling. HURT, HABIT, or HANG-UP...are these things hindering your walk with God?
