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 schedule each month looks something like this:
|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!
|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!
Registration & Upcoming Dates
The Wesleyan Choir will present “Almost There” in the Worship Center on Saturday, Dec. 7 at 5 p.m. & Sunday, Dec. 8 at 9:30 & 11:00.
“Almost There” invites you to experience the awe and wonder of Christmas as Mary did many years ago. May this unique take on a familiar story draw your heart closer to the expectation of Christ’s coming and finally the angel’s joyful song of His miraculous arrival.
“Almost There,” features the music of Christian artist Michael W. Smith. Invite anyone you know who would enjoy a beautiful time of Christmas music.
Christmas Eve is a very special day at Platte Woods UMC. All of our Christmas Eve services feature the carols you love to sing, a meaningful message and a special candlelight version of “Silent Night.” Children are always welcome at our worship services, but for those who prefer, childcare is available for those 3 & under at two of our services.
We hope you’ll join us as part of your Christmas celebration.
