Special Chit Chat and Chai this coming Monday!

We will have a special Chit Chat & Chai this coming Monday (November 14th) at 7pm at Panera in McKinney!  What a tremendous blessing to have a guest speaker, Denise Kendrick, come and share her story!  The Kendrick's have been foster parents for the past 8 years caring for nearly 30 children in that time frame.  Now parents of 7 children ranging in age from 2-18 years old, they serve as full-time missionaries to see the church reclaim the care of orphans and waiting children through Embrace Orphan Ministry.  It's gonna be great!  

Orphan Sunday Update

Orphan Sunday was a BIG success!  What a powerful sermon by Pastor Richard!  And what a blessing to get to experience a moving video of our church members who have answered the call in so many different ways! In the evening, we gathered together again and were able to experience some powerful testimonies, gain information, and share our heart for the orphan.

Here are a few ways we saw the Lord move on this amazing day:

  • Several sponsorships for orphans in Zambia, Bolivia, and Sierra Leone!
  • People answered the call to donate to the adoption fund!
  • People are stepping forward in faith to start the process of adoption!
  • Several people have signed up to donate their time and resources to wrap around other families who are adopting or fostering!
  • And the calls are still coming in!  If you have any questions about adoption, foster care, or orphan care (in general)...please call the church office or shoot us an email:
Thank you to everyone who responded to the prompting of their hearts!!!  And thank you to everyone who gave their time to make both experiences happen!  A special thanks goes to Mark and Melissa Baker - who have devoted themselves fully to The Journey and it's cause!!!

And this is the video we showed Sunday night.
