We have a big Sunday Coming Up! We are continuing our series – Knowing Jesus in a New Way. This week’s message is on Second Chances, something we all have needed from time to time!
The Uprising will be leading our worship this Sunday and presenting some special music. It is always great to have them with us and I want to encourage as many people as possible to come out and hear them.
The Uprising is a youth choral group from NBUC. They have been singing together for over a year and have visited The Sunday Gathering on several occasions. One of our own, from the Ardglen community, Paden Gabriel is a member of the group.
Also, we have been donated two free tickets ($30 value) for the NBUC Spring Concert. The “Extravaganza” is Sunday, April 22 at 7pm. There will be choirs, soloists and 17 Cellists from the Oakville Symphony Orchestra. We will have a draw for the tickets on Sunday morning, so come out Sunday morning if you would like a shot at the tickets. BTW: Children under 12 are free!
10:30am – Food and Friends
11:00am – Worship and Inspiration
Now that Spring has full arrived in all her glory, we have canceled Learning Spot today. Hopefully, they plow out our parking lot soon!

Mental Health 101
Improve YOUR mental health awareness!
Mental Health 101 provides individuals with an understanding various mental health issues, builds mental health awareness and helps reduce the stigma
associated with mental illness. Participants will learn strategies for maintaining their mental wellness and for providing compassionate support and understanding to colleagues, friends and family.
Don’t forget that this week is March Break at the two locations of The Journey, so that means regular programming is cancelled and March Break Camp is running 10am – 4pm, from Tuesday to Friday. Sorry, we are booked solid at both locations.
Next week we are back to regular programming.

The Sunday Gathering
This coming Sunday, January 21st is the third installment of a great series called – Awakening. This week’s message is: “Awakening to Your Purpose.” We all have a purpose and a reason to be here, but sometimes we find ourselves asking the question, “Is this all there is?” So, come out this Sunday at 10:30am for Food and Friends and 11:00am for a great and inspiring worship service.
The Great Canadian Chili Cook-off
This Friday, January 19th at 6pm, The Journey will host, “The Great Canadian Chili Cook-off and Movie Night!” We will be cooking up three different chili recipes (and hotdogs for the kids who don’t like chili) and then settling down to a fun family movie. You don’t need to bring anything, but an appetite!
I know that most of you reading this email don’t qualify for this esteemed group, since you have to be at least 55 years of age to join, but for those of you who, like me, who have been around awhile this is always a great evening. So, next week – Friday, January 26th at 6pm we of an esteemed age will be getting together for a great evening of fun, food and friendship!
This coming Friday we’re serving Chili (three different kinds) and watching a great family movie. So, come out at 6pm for good food (we’ll having something for the kids who don’t eat chili), a good time and a good movie.
