This Sunday is Undie Sunday. The Journey is collecting new and clean under garments, socks and toiletries, which we will be donating to Regeneration Outreach Community. Drop by The Journey this week, or come out this Sunday to donate to this great cause!
The Journey updated its internet connection, which meant we had to get a new phone number. Our new number is: 905-230-8 Triple 6. In case you are wondering about the “Tripe 6” I have written it this way, because of the potential of BOTS scanning our posts. We get enough calls for Duct Cleaning as it is!

Don’t forget coming up on May 3rd, we will have a special guest speaker from the Canadian Mental Health Association!
We all know someone who struggles with mental health issues. And, most of us from time to time face challenges that affect our mental well being.
The evening will be an opportunity to understand better both our own mental health care needs and to recognize the challenges faced by family, friends, neighbours and co-workers.

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!
