JOIN THE CHRISTMAS CHOIR
"The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!" The Tower Grove gospel choir is welcoming new singers just in time for Christmas Eve services! If you're interested in singing in the choir, please contact Mary Beth Kesler for more information on how to join. The rehearsal for Christmas Eve services is Wednesday, December 19, at 7:30 p.m.
 
 
DEACON NOMINATIONS
 

Nominations are now open for new deacons for The Journey Tower Grove!  

Deacons are church members who seek to care for other church members and regular attenders on a one-on-one, long-term basis. They are commissioned by the elders to be spiritual and practical companions to those who face complex needs or are in crisis. It can be difficult, but the opportunities to see God’s face in it are endless.

Nomination of a man or a woman for the office of deacon should be done with great care and prayer, looking to men and women who are already fulfilling the qualifications and work within the congregation.

A candidate for deacon at The Journey may be nominated in one of two ways:

  1. A member may nominate his or herself

  2. A member may be nominated for deacon by another member

To nominate yourself (if you are a member of The Journey Tower Grove) or to nominate another member, please fill out our very brief nomination form here.

 
JOURNEY CELEBRATIONS
We loved celebrating our children at Tower Grove this past month with child dedications and a special performance by our Journey Kids Choir!
 
THE JOURNEY COLLECTIVE
This season, as we seek to celebrate and behold the glory of God that is fully displayed in the person of Jesus, our Emmanuel, we hope this new song by The Journey Collective will be a blessing to you. Download it for free!
 
Open Table is an opportunity for us to embody love to those in our church family this season! We look forward to the ways that the Lord will bless and build us as we open our homes, extend our tables, and share a meal with one another. If you’re interested in serving as a host or being a guest for a Christmas meal, please email Linda Lipa. Please respond by Sunday, December 16!
 
Across our locations, we are celebrating advent – the season leading up to Christmas. It’s a time to reflect on the significance of Jesus’ birth and the hope we have because of it. We invite you to visit thejourney.org/advent and view our advent guide with daily readings and devotions. Over the next 23 days, rediscover with us the story of Jesus’ birth and the promises He came to fulfill!

Please know that what happens in this church is because God works through your gifts, and your generosity. Would you pray about going above and beyond your regular giving and give a generous year-end gift to The Journey?
