An Advent Journey

As we begin to prepare for the celebration of the birth of the Savior, God's gift of love, the Advent season reminds us to wait with hopeful anticipation for the time when Christ will come again in power and glory at the close of the age. Embark on An Advent Journey by making your way through a four-week devotional guide. Click here to download it.

Texting of Journey Announcements

Journey is setting up group texting—and when people respond, only the sender gets the message—not everyone in the group text (yay!) We’ll be using Remind to send out texts for church-wide announcements, like special events or cancellations because of inclement weather. You can choose to unsubscribe any time you wish. If you’d like to sign up to receive these Journey Church texts, you can add yourself by sending this text:

Enter this number: 81010

Type this message: @textjc

(Because Remind is used primarily by schools, you may be asked to identify if you are a student or a parent or a teacher. If you are an adult, please identify yourself as a parent even if you are not.)

JourneyCares Holiday Challenge
