It’s not easy visiting a church for the first time. You may wonder:
Do I belong here?
Am I really welcome?
Will the people be unfriendly, or too friendly?
How should I dress?
Will I be conspicuous?
Will it be easy to leave if I don’t like it?
My Journey Story:
"Journey for me means a second chance for church. Before coming to Journey I had a bad experience with my church which resulted in a lot of negative feelings about the purpose of church and a false assumption I could do it better on my own..."
Accepting: Loves, welcomes and encourages people of any race, socioeconomic level, marital status, age, spiritual background; does not embarrass or condemn or beat people down emotionally; is not cliquish
Celebrating: Has incredibly talented musical, multi-media and dramatic persons leading in worship
Discipling: Leads unchurched people to Jesus; connects them in meaningful community for learning and fellowship; intentionally moves them from wherever they are spiritually toward becoming more fully-devoted followers of Christ
Innovative: Unbound by convention, breaks stereotypes
Missional: Tithes to missions initiatives and serves in the community where there are needs, whether physical, emotional or spiritual
Transforming: Empowers people to use their gifts in transforming lives for Christ, always ready to be the hands and feet of Jesus, seeking no reward or recognition
Truth-telling: Biblically-centered teaching; sensitive in a relevant way to issues facing people in today’s world; does not back away from hard questions; shares the gospel message to people who may have never heard it before; does not compromise what’s expected of Christ-followers to serve and develop spiritually
In our Sunday morning Journey Kids (JKids) program, children learn about God's love for them and God's teachings for their lives. Classes for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and kindergarteners are offered at both services. A class is offered for children in grades K-5 on Sunday mornings at the 10:00 a.m. service. All elementary students are invited to worship with their families in the 11:15 a.m. service. Worship bags with activity pages are available for children in worship if desired.
The primary goal of the student ministries at Journey Church is to glorify God. Our mission is to build a community of disciples. Through Sunday morning and night student activities, retreats, parties, and hanging out during the week, we hope to connect students to a caring and intentional community. Through Bible studies, communal worship, mission trips, and service to our neighbors, we aim to be more fully devoted disciples of Jesus.
Journey Groups are intentional environments that help people pursue a life-changing relationship with God and authentic community with others. There is a group for everyone at Journey! Groups meet at varying times throughout the week all over the region. There are groups for men and women (together) - married or single, married couples, women, and for individuals with felt needs.
