GRAB INVITES IN THE LOBBY!
All Church Online is the one time a year where the entire church, all campuses, gather together online. This is an opportunity for you to invite others into your home, others who typically wouldn’t come to church or who are put off by the idea of church, you can invite them into your home and do church together. Consider it a missional opportunity.
We will not be meeting in the building because we want you to be the church, where you can invest in people in your home and be a light. Choose the experience you would normally attend or we’ve also added additional options for your convenience: 8am, 9:30am, 11am, 12:30pm and 7pm. It’s a great way to start off the year with friends, family and your church family, while hearing from Pastor Bill and each of our campus pastors. See you online! ChristJourney.tv
Serving at-risk children and families around the globe. Allow me to share a part of an email I received: “I wanted to take time to thank you. I can’t believe it’s been two years since you took time away from your family to help me come closer to God and remove all the things I had done to myself.” “I am so grateful for you and this church. Without you I may still be lost.” This note came to me from a heart now full of the life and love of Jesus, but when we first met it was troubled with dark heavy bitterness, feeling abused and neglected by God and haunted by questions unanswered. But a friend who cares brought me into the relational circle and together we shared our church and our Savior with them. It never ceases to amaze me what God does when we are willing to invest in the lives of people, no matter their need, and then invite them to share the joy of Jesus with us. Thank you, Christ Journey, for being this kind of church – the kind we can bring our friends and family to so their lives can change for good! Yours, in Christ,
Each year, we ask all those who call Christ Journey Church their home to make a special “above and beyond the tithe” gift to support our global partners and projects. Your gifts help us alleviate illiteracy, take a bite out of world hunger through agricultural development, provide medical and dental care for the poorest of the poor, create economic opportunities where these are in short supply and eradicate sex trafficking. Of course, all this happens in the name of Jesus and because of people like you who give. This money goes directly to our global projects through our partners. This year, we are challenging all of our attendees to give an amount per family member. You can even give an amount for someone who may not be in a position to give this year. Just take our Give Global Card, pray, choose an amount, select your method of giving and make a difference. If everyone participates, imagine what God will do with what we supply! Let’s change our world.
