Health Update

Journey Family,

Thank you so much for your prayers for Robin and I, and our family! We felt your support as we traveled to the Mayo Clinic and experienced the incredible place that it is! We even ran into some old friends and had a unique opportunity to encourage them on their journey!

While my tumors are still there, we came home with lots of knowledge and options for a bright future! Of course, with that knowledge comes great responsibility, too. Click below for a video update.

Now that it’s summer, I also want to give a shout out to some exciting things that we have going on just for our Journey family!

Come hang out for Sweet Sundays in the Park, at our very own JourneyChurch Park on Sunday evenings from 5:30 – 8:30 PM. We have music, games, sports, Life Group hangouts and then Cafe3.20 serves a dessert-of-the-week after the 6:00 PM worship experience! (this Sunday is fudge brownies!!) We also have a new opportunity for your family to win a family prize-of-the-week!  Post a family photo to facebook, instragram or twitter with the hashtag #JourneyFamily to be in the drawing for the next family prize! If you post a picture of your family taken at Sweet Sundays in the Park, your name will be in the drawing TWICE! Next week’s prize is a Cafe3.20 and moon-bounce block party!

Another hot topic is Creative Journey’s next album, REMIX. We want YOU to pick the songs that are recreated for the album by making pledges through our Kickstarter campaign. When you contribute, you get to vote for a song and your money goes to the recording and production costs of the record. Click here to contribute and checkout the other cool incentives like a free copy of the record, guitar or voice lessons, and even a block party that includes the Creative Journey Worship team and Cafe 3.20 showing up in your neighborhood! Don’t wait to buy the album in August because we need your help now to complete this project! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1439230937/remix-a-creative-journey-worship-album

If you have kids in preschool and elementary school, make sure to grab a family night plan when you pickup your kiddos on Sunday. The plans are specifically for our study, Jesus Loves the Little Children, and they include tools for you to teach biblical principles at home in fun and creative ways. We know that summer is a different kind of busy, but busy none-the-less, so we hope some of these things are just what your family needs to spend valuable time together soaking up the sun and growing in faith. At JourneyChurch, we are making it One Sweet Summer!

I can’t wait to see you all on Sunday to continue teaching and learning more about our Father’s love for us as His children.

Stunning Opportunities

Journey Family –

I hope you all had a fantastic Memorial Day weekend! I wrote a letter for Pastor Adam to share during worship experiences on Sunday, May 25 and I wanted to post it here for anyone who may have missed it.

First, and foremost, my family and I want to thank all the men and women who have served this great country. It is you who are truly our heroes.

We also want to ask you to pray for us specifically this week. The past several months have been nothing short of miraculous and we continually find ourselves giving God glory. We have been blessed with so much fruitfulness in our lives that it has been easy for me to kind-of ignore the realities of my health challenges.

To that point, and due to the stunning opportunities God continues to give us as family, and a church family, we are submitting to our overseers’ and elders’ requests to go to Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN.

While the thought of it all is very daunting, please know that we are going out of a desire to affirm everything we already do know about the tumors and to be as aggressive as possible in finding current data, as a whole, in regards to the situation. So we do not go out of a panic, or new-discovered crisis, just out of stewardship of the opportunities God has given us.

Please keep us in your constant prayers and especially my kiddos. They have a great support system, and just like us, choose to focus on the positives in our lives instead of the few challenges.

I’ll be here to begin our next study “Jesus Loves the Little Children,” a fresh study that will revolutionize your life, our church, and our cities forever! So bring somebody!

Blessings, have an e3:20 week, and let’s kick-off our best summer ever next Sunday!

Christmas Spectacular

Journey Family,

I hope you’ve had an incredible week! We are ready for you to join us for Christmas Spectacular starting TONIGHT! It has been amazing to share the simple and most valuable aspects of this season with you throughout the Simply Christmas series and Advent, and I am expecting God to do even greater things as we continue and have over 10,000 people come through our doors this weekend! We have experiences Friday, Saturday and Sunday so that there is plenty of space for everyone to join us.

Continue inviting and praying for those who will attend. Christmas Spectacular is our gift to the community and an opportunity for us to share the Light of the world with thousands of people. All glory to God, I believe the environment He has allowed us to create is the best Christmas environment in Oklahoma! I can’t wait to worship with you, have a blast with you, and see lives transformed! It’s going to be big and I want you, your family and your friends to be there, too!

The next few days are going to be simply spectacular! See you soon!

Pastor Clark
