I remember when I got my first car at 16 years old, a 1977 Chevrolet El Camino. For the kids, an El Camino is one of those weird looking cars that looks like it can’t decide if it wants to be a car or a truck. I loved it, though, because it was mine.
Even though it wasn’t in the best shape physically, it ran good and got me from point A to point B. But since it was mine now, I wanted it to be better. So, I put the work into it to improve the bad spots. Things that were no longer functional got replaced. After a couple months it looked and performed way better than when I first got it.
Journey Church has a similar opportunity right now. We are the proud owners of 366 South Lincoln Drive. Our building there is ‘usable.’ We could button up a few things to get it to pass code and then throw in some folding chairs to have our services in, but that’s not acceptable. I know that we all feel a bit of ownership of our new campus because it’s OUR campus. Journey is made up of many great people who continually invest into the vision of our church.
So right now is when we need to join together to prepare our new campus for our future. We all need to put the work in to improve the bad spots, to increase the functionality, and most importantly to create a place where lives can be changed. Everyone needs to be a part and to get involved.
With ownership comes responsibility. So, I encourage anyone and everyone to join us at our WORK NIGHTS each Monday from 5-8P. We need both skilled and unskilled hands to finish this amazing project. The end result will be something we can all be proud of.
Can’t wait to see you there!
