The Journey Continues… Our “Fit for the Journey” teaching turns our attention during the month of February to matters of money, power, accountability and eternity. Titles are: “How to Get a Raise,” “Power Plays,” “The Handwriting on the Wall,” and “Living with the End of All Things in Mind.” It sounds ominous, but God’s plan is glorious! During this month in our weekend experiences we will share baptism, communion, and a special time of prayer and altar call for God’s gracious healing, direction and intervention in our lives. We will be setting the table and filling it with God’s Truth, fresh and nutritious. Come and dine! And why not invite someone to join you? They just might be eternally grateful! Join the Fit for the Journey Challenge & Get Resources at ChristJourney.org/Fit.

What an amazing year we had and new beginning we are celebrating! Our Christmas Eve services welcomed and served more people than ever before, with over 3600 of us participating on site. We had almost 800 more joining us online from 12 nations! How incredible. Some 70 people raised their hands in praying to receive and follow Christ in our services and we will be looking forward to their baptisms in the weeks ahead. Special thanks to every volunteer in ministry that made this outreach event such a tremendous success. It was the highest attended Christmas Eve celebration on record for us. Speaking of amazing, Church Online officially launched Dec 29-30 and we had 1582 people participating in the experience! Our typical attendance in our physical service the last weekend of the year usually hovers around 1000, so to have over 1500 involved more than exceeded expectations. Those joining us participated from 15 nations around the world and by the experience end, 15 people had indicated they were receiving Christ as their Savior and deciding to follow Him. One even asked about baptism! Additionally, we commissioned 100 core ministry team members to our Country Walk campus. We are concluding the renovations to the Gables campus facilities and we have added a new van and multiseat golf cart to our shuttle service to assist in parking for the weekend services. With so many green lights before us I believe it must be time to let the journey continue! Blessings,
Bill White Senior Pastor
