rebekah's story

On April 15, 2013, Rebekah Gregory stood with family near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. That's when a terrorist's bomb went off three feet away.

Her injuries were catastrophic, resulting in multiple surgeries, and, eventually, the amputation of her left leg.

Two years later, Rebekah ran the Boston Marathon on her prosthetic leg as a symbol of her refusal to let this tragic event define or destroy her. She's told her story of joy amid tragedy on The Today Show, ESPN, and in her new book, Taking My Life Back. And now, she will share it in an exclusive interview with Christ Community Church. 


Our exclusive interview with Rebekah Gregory will be conducted live as part of the three weekend services of our St. Charles Campus and broadcast via livestream to campuses in Aurora, DeKalb, and Streamwood.

As part of our regular weekend service times, this event is free and open to the public. No reservation or ticket needed.

SATURDAY NIGHT NOTE: While the Sunday service at all campuses will have the normal feel of a Sunday church service, the Saturday night services at both the St. Charles and DeKalb Campuses will be reformatted as night-out live events without a worship set.
