The Weekly | January 23


QUOTE FOR A MONDAY

“The world says: “You have needs — satisfy them. You have as much right as the rich and the mighty. Don’t hesitate to satisfy your needs; indeed, expand your needs and demand more.” This is the worldly doctrine of today. And they believe that this is freedom. The result for the rich is isolation and suicide, for the poor, envy and murder.”

JKPC WELCOMES GUEST WORSHIP LEADER | TIMOTHY JAMES MEANEY

This Sunday, JKPC has the privilege of welcoming guest singer, songwriter, music producer, and worship leader Timothy James Meaney to lead us in worship on Sunday, January 29th. Timothy’s love for leading worship came early while in Junior High School. This passion spread fast and, after leading through High School, he took on the role of leading his college ministry as well as the younger students in his church, Westminster Chapel in Bellevue. He went on to record his first studio album in 1990 and has released ten more since.

Today Timothy plays up and down the west coast and throughout the world, leading worship and performing concerts. He currently serves at various churches as needed.

Interested in hearing some of Timothy’s music? You can find him on Spotify, iTunes, or you can check out his website: http://www.timothyjamesmeaney.com.

WE ARE ALL OF STUNNING LANDSCAPES

New Art Exhibit coming to JKPC
During the month of February, JKPC will be hosting an exhibit of works by artist, Lindsey Schoeneman called “WE ARE ALL OF STUNNING LANDSCAPES.” Lindsey is an artist, art therapist, and mental health counselor based in the Pacific Northwest. She is a graduate of Antioch University Seattle with an MA in Counseling and Art Therapy; she earned her BFA in Photography and BA in French Studies from the University of Washington. Lindsey approaches creative expression as a practice in curiosity, intuition, self-confrontation, and as a conduit for compassion and empathy. Her practice in both art and counseling motivate her spirit and guide her engagement in social and ecological justice efforts.

Here is Lindsey’s statement about “WE ARE ALL OF STUNNING LANDSCAPES”: This collection of work explores the reflective interactions between inner and outer landscapes; it expresses the way I see metaphors exchanged between psychological spaces and the external natural world. I believe in the experience of aliveness as landscape, as weather, as moments of the moon, as wakeful and unconscious, and as dynamic encounters with paradox. My work is an effort to illuminate the mysterious, the nuanced, the nebulous, the intangible—the living of a life that asks us to embody the complexity of existence and remain open to what we do not know and what we cannot hold onto. 

The Opening Reception for this exhibit will be on Friday, February 3rd at 7:00 p.m. in the JKPC Atrium. Meet Lindsey, hear more about her work, and enjoy some refreshments!


JK KIDS LEADERS MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

I saw one of the most precious things on Sunday in our 2 and three-year-old room. I happened to walk by near the end of service and heard a little one sobbing. I immediately went over to see what was wrong and discovered that this little one was not crying because she missed a parent or was hurt. Rather she was crying because the service was ending and she did not want to leave her leader.

JK Kids Leaders make a difference! In just over an hour, our leaders share the love of Christ with the children who come through our doors. This little one left our church knowing that she was loved by her parents but also by the wonderful volunteer who gave of her time and heart to help lead her in her relationships with God. Each week, nearly 20 JK Kids Leaders give their time and energy to invest in the children in our church. When you see one of these amazing people, please say thank you! And if you are feeling called to step out and make a difference in our children’s lives, I would love to talk with you. Kristine@jkpcusa.org
