Animal Ministry: Administrator Needed

July 6, 2015 • Category: Uncategorized

The Animal Ministry is in need of a new coordinator. Kris Soper has been filling this role, but her schedule has become too busy to continue. If you love animals and love working with people, this may be the role for you!

As Animal Ministry Administrator, you would:

  • Manage communication with those expressing an interest in the ministry.
  • Coordinate those interested in volunteering at Lucky Dog Rescue (meetings, training, and events).
  • Communicate routinely to ensure volunteers are getting acclimated to the ministry.

If this sounds like something you’d enjoy, please complete the response form.

New .Church Domain

July 4, 2015 • Category: Uncategorized

Recently a new “.church” internet domain became available for the first time, and we acquired the right to www.LifeJourney.Church. That will enable us to shorten our email address and web address, while dropping the confusing “.cc” domain we currently use. For now, there is NO CHANGE to our web address. It’s still www.LifeJourneyChurch.cc.. But this week we’ll begin changing our church email addresses. Don’t worry, the old addresses will continue to work for a long transition period. We just wanted to give you a “heads up” when you see the new domain in our church emails.

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.
