“Missing Christmas?”

Missing Christmas


Imagine missing Christmas. That seems impossible, especially with all the publicity and promotion Christmas receives each year.  But, nevertheless, there are people who miss Christmas every year and who will no doubt miss it this year, too. Some may miss Christmas because they are too busy or are indifferent. Others may be simply uninformed; uninformed of whose birthday it really is and the Good News it brings.

But imagine missing the first Christmas. Many people did. The innkeeper missed Christmas, Herod missed Christmas, and so did the religious leaders and many of the people of the day. But, why?  That’s the question we will seek to answer in this year’s Christmas series, “Missing Christmas?” Join us beginning December 8.

Breakfast With A Purpose

You are invited to join us Saturday, May 18, 9 a.m., at Dutch Kitchen in Plain City for a breakfast with a purpose! Besides a delicious home-style breakfast, we will have the opportunity to get acquainted with and provide support for the ministry of Safe Harbor House in Springfield, Ohio.

The core purposes for Safe Harbor House are Engaging women with truth in love…Empowering women through healing and hope…Equipping women with skills for daily living. The ministry provides safe, transitional housing for women coming out of difficult circumstances, including substance abuse, incarceration, prostitution/sex trafficking, homelessness or domestic abuse. Safe Harbor empowers women who have experienced brokenness through opportunities for healing and personal growth that provide holistic life-skills training.

To help Safe Harbor House provide a place for these at-risk women, we are asking each woman to bring an item to contribute such as cleaning supplies, paper towels, HE laundry detergents, trash bags, toilet paper, etc. The Founder of Safe Harbor House, Joy Fagan, will join us and share about this incredible ministry. This would also be a wonderful opportunity for our middle and high school young women to attend.

The cost for the breakfast is $10. You can rsvp to Carol George at, or sign up on Sunday at Journey. I hope you can join us.

Something’s “fishy” at Journey

Jan 31, 2013   //   by georgec   //   Blog, Journey Stuff, Our Blog  //  Comments Off on Something’s “fishy” at Journey

Something’s “fishy” at Journey, and you can almost smell it.  That’s because we are in the middle of a two-week video series by Andy Stanley called “Go Fish”.  In the first week we learned that Jesus didn’t say “Follow me and I’ll make you a better husband, better wife, better student, more organized, or more spiritual.”  These things may happen, but they are not God’s primary agenda for us. God’s primary agenda for us is to make us fishers of men.

17 “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will make you fishers of men.” 18 At once they left their nets and followed him. Mark 1:17-18

This Sunday, February 3rd, we will learn that fishing for men is not as hard as we make it.  In fact, every “follower” can do it and should.  And to help us become fishers of men, Andy will explain a simple presentation of the Gospel from Scripture that can easily be shared with others.  I hope you will join us.
