A MESSAGE FROM PASTOR CHARLIE
Dear Metro East Family, 

The month of July has flown by! As we enter into August, Journey July at Metro East was something to look back on with gratitude.

We aimed to change our rhythms and pace, to give our Journey Kids volunteers some rest, and to be more intentional in our church relationships. We loved having our Journey Kids in service with us on Sundays – the children brought energy and were engaged in the whole service! We memorized 1 John 3:16 together as a church (do you remember the hand motions still?), and we enjoyed community with church family after services each Sunday. We had a great turnout at our ice cream social!

Reflecting on this past month, I hope it can serve as a reminder to us to continue rejoicing and giving thanks for what the Lord has done and is doing among us this summer.

As rhythms change as we enter this new month, we recognize that summer is winding down and school is about to begin. We're excited for what the fall will bring at The Journey Metro East. See what our church family is up to in August below!

Blessings, 
Pastor Charlie

 
 
FALL SERMON SERIES
 
It’s in our human heart to be a part of something. And as God’s people, He has called us out by grace and unleashed us to the world to bring change through the gospel of Jesus – by being a part of the church. Pastor Curtis shares here a preview and vision for our upcoming fall sermon series on the church – its purposes, its people, and who it is through God’s eyes. We'll begin this new series on Sunday, September 8, at The Journey Metro East!
 
Friends! We know how much you missed our wonderful Switch coffee in July. We are back! In an effort to continue to make Sunday morning more sustainable, please bring your favorite cup to enjoy your coffee. 
 
FOUR WEEKS TO A GREAT MARRIAGE

Save the Date
August 10-September 21

Marriage is an important relationship, one that we believe reflects God’s unconditional love for humanity (Eph. 5) and is meant to be a lifelong covenant commitment between one man and one woman. Four Weeks to a Great Marriage consists of a series of four group classes. Couples are paired with a mentor couple who will walk through the program with them. The classes and mentoring are open to engaged and recently married couples.

Learn more and register for our upcoming session!

UPCOMING EVENTS & NEWS
We would love for you to join us the first Sunday of every month for our all-church prayer night at 5:30 p.m. This is an informal event where we pray for personal, church and global things going on in the world around us. Kids are welcome to participate! 
 
August 25 right after service, we'll be having our first-ever Connect Fair! What is a connect fair, you ask? Well, it's an opportunity for us to experience all the different ways you can connect here at church. 
We'll have stations set up in the gym for you to meet all the amazing people who run the different ministries here at Metro East and see what they're all about. If you've been wanting to plug in but just not sure how – this is the perfect opportunity. Community groups, service teams, partner ministries....it will all be gathered in one place. Your kids are invited, so make plans to stay after church that day!
 

Meet the staff at The Journey Metro East, become more familiar with the church, and hear about ways you can get connected! Whether you've been with us for a few days or several months, you're invited to join us August 11th following the 10 a.m. service in the Multipurpose Room.

Childcare is not available but children are welcome to attend.
