Journey: A Ministry for Couples
Oct 25 @ 6:05 pm – 9:00 pm

Journey offers monthly programs to strengthen your relationship at any stage and any age! On the fourth Friday of the month, join us for a time of community and learning, followed by the opportunity for a date night for you and your significant other.


Have elementary-age and younger kids in the house? We provide professional childcare for your evening so you can enjoy your time together without worry. Childcare is $10 per family when registered 10 days before the event. Childcare reservations made after that deadline will be charged a $20 late fee.


September Program


Change whatever! We’ve all argued, ignored, or interrupted. We’ve let “unwholesome talk” come right out of our mouths. Join Journey in September to learn tips and tricks to help your temperament handle its strengths and weaknesses. Even if you aren’t sure what your temperament is it’s not too late to begin your Journey! 


Our 2019-20 study is based on the book, I Said This, You Heard That: How Your Wiring Colors Your Communication by Kathleen Edelman. No mandatory homework or reading and if you miss a month that’s okay!


Our schedule each month looks something like this:


Community Time
Enjoy a light snack while getting to know other couples. Childcare dropoff is available during this time.
Each month, we’ll have a different program of information designed to give you the knowledge and nudge to work on your relationship. There is no mandatory homework or reading and each month’s individual topic allows for flexibility in attendance.

Our 2019-20 study is based on the book “I Said This, You Heard That: How Your Wiring Colors Your Communication” by Kathleen Edelman. If you’ve ever wondered why sometimes your significant other doesn’t seem to hear you, or you feel like you are talking to a wall, then this is the Journey for you!
Date Night
Whether you decide to have a quiet dinner alone, catch up on some shopping or play mini golf, we hope you’ll take some of what you learned during the program and discuss it with your partner during your date. If your kids are in childcare, just be back by 9:00 for pickup!

Join us for our annual Trunk ‘r Treat! All kids 5th grade and younger are invited to trick-or-treat around the parking lot, where festively decorated cars will hold delicious candy and treats. Invite your friends and neighbors for this fun family event! Rain or Shine! We will move inside in case of rain.


Trick or Treat So Others Can Eat

Canned goods will be accepted at the church on October 26-27 and at Trunk ‘r Treat for the Southern Platte Emergency Assistance Center. Bring your donations and help a family in need in Platte County.


Volunteer Opportunities

There are two ways you can help with Trunk ‘r Treat!

  • Host a trunk: Our Trunk ‘r Treat is a great event because of great people! If you’d like to decorate your trunk and hand out candy to the hundreds of children attending from our community, please contact Jen Bruce, Director of Children’s Ministry.
  • Donate candy: If you can’t host a trunk, consider donating bagged, individually wrapped candy … it takes a lot of candy to fill all those buckets!


Charge Conference
Oct 29 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
As per United Methodist Church Discipline, a charge conference of PWUMC shall be held annually. PWUMC will participate in the Northwest District Charge Conference, to be held October 29 at Platte City UMC. Members of the PWUMC Leadership Council will vote at that Conference on church business.
Turkey Dinner
Nov 9 @ 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Everyone is invited to a delicious meal of turkey, dressing, potatoes, cranberry salad, rolls and lots of desserts. All donations will go to the Student Ministry to help fund scholarships for students to go to mission and summer camps and special events. The students will be in the gathering space by the elevators on Sunday mornings so you can sign up to volunteer and to donate food or money. This is a great opportunity to pull together as a community supporting our Student Ministries while enjoying a delicious meal. A freewill offering will be received. Sign up to bring food or work.

Student Guatemala Mission Trip

This trip is open to students ages 15 and up. Applications will be accepted on a first-come first-served basis and deposit is due upon acceptance to reserve your spot on the team. Students interested in being a part of this mission team may be required to participate in an interview with trip leaders prior to acceptance.
