Ash Wednesday
Feb 26 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Ash Wednesday @ Platte Woods United Methodist Church | Platte Woods | Missouri | United States

Join us for our Ash Wednesday Service. This day marks the beginning of Lent, the 40 days (excluding Sundays) leading to Easter. The mark of ashes upon our forehead (or hand) is in recognition of not only our mortality but our need for repentance. The season of Lent is an opportunity to turn our attention back to God and prepare for the gift of eternal life, which we celebrate at Easter. Childcare is available for 3 yrs and under.


We also will have ashes available the morning of Ash Wednesday at the following locations:


Parkville Coffee (6:30-11:00 a.m.)

103 Main Street

Parkville, MO 64152


Caribou Coffee (6:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.)

6370 N. Lucerne Avenue

Parkville, MO 64151




Journey: A Ministry for Couples
Feb 28 @ 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.


Have you ever wondered why relying on other people never quite satisfies your soul? Why our words can sometimes negatively impact the people around us instead of helping build them up? No matter your age or stage in life, it’s not too late to learn your temperament and how to better understand your partner! God will always be the ONLY one who can satisfy all of our needs, but learning your temperament will help guide you and your partner! 


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! Even if you haven’t been yet this year, no worries, we want to go on this Journey with you! 


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!
