ON THE JOURNEY

JACKIE TAYLOR, ASSOCIATE PASTOR

“So what exactly do you do?” It is a question that I get quite often, and it makes me chuckle. I have the privilege of serving at Journey Church in a variety of ways, but I have to be honest, one of my FAVORITE ways that I get to serve is in the area of missions and outreach.

 

At Journey Church, we are focused on going outside of our church “walls” and serving in the community. Last week I delivered breakfast, valentines and school supplies to two local schools on behalf of our church family. This week I get to make two more of those deliveries. It is such an honor and privilege to serve our church and our community in this way. I get to be the face of Journey Church as I make these deliveries, but it is you – your heart, your generosity, your faithfulness—that is the true hero of the story. Just listen to the impact you made in the life of one educator last week:

 

Wow. You guys at Journey Church really know how to be the hands and feet of Jesus in this community and at Read Mountain Middle School!! This morning I showed up to see such a wonderful act of kindness being displayed to all staff here at RMMS with breakfast!! This is no surprise as you have been doing this all year for us. BUT, I would be remiss if I didn't stop and give a shout out and THANK YOU for being and having such a servant attitude in your community. THANK YOU for all that you do. Know that it is much appreciated and everyone here is AWARE of what a kind and loving church you are. Have a great day!

 

Thank you for your faithful generosity that makes acts of kindness like this in our community a possibility! Thank you to all those who wrote valentines to encourage these educators. Thank you for your hearts that yearn to love and care for others the way that Jesus loves and cares for others! Thank you for allowing me the awesome privilege to serve you and Jesus in this incredible way!
