Amazing Journey: Coming August 2015

June 5, 2015 • Category: Uncategorized

Amazing Journey FB-02LifeJourney Church has embarked on a mission to host the Amazing Journey, an event designed to bring awareness to non-profits and other humanitarian service providers in the Indianapolis area—and LifeJourney Church as part of our continued outreach and service efforts.

The Amazing Journey is in its initial planning stage­­—­a stage where LifeJourney Church is looking for supporters and volunteers, both inside and outside the church, for this event slated to happen on a Saturday in August 2015.

The event is similar to the popular reality TV show, “The Amazing Race.” Contestants play for their favorite charity/non-profit organization with a large cash grand prize. Contestants compete around the city with events taking place at different locations, while benefiting great organizations along the way.

Possible competition tasks for contestants may included:

  • Contestants visit a local community center and must shuttle X number of wheel-barrow loads of mulch to help beautify the area.
  • Contestants must scavenge for X pounds of canned items for a local shelter.
  • Contestants must learn a dance-skit at a community theater and perform it for the local children’s hospital.

The event is designed to have a “feel-good, pay-it-forward” spirit for everyone involved, from contestants, to audience members, to participating organizations!
It goes without say this is a huge under-taking and we really need the support of the church and outside organizations. Read more and get connected here.
