MAY NEXT STEPS AND CONNECT CARD
WELCOME TO THE JOURNEY
Welcome to Journey Church. You can get a religious experience anywhere. We focus on taking steps in our relationships and we believe that God wants to have a personal relationship with you. We want to encourage you to explore or take steps to experience more of God. In Him, we find our best life. If you're new to Journey Church, fill out the guest card here. If you're at church, you can fill out the card in the seat and bring it to the Next Steps Center in the lobby. We will send you a gift card to say thanks for joining us and we promise not to harass you.
DISCOVER THE JOURNEY - MAY 16 ONLINE OR IN PERSON
This quick meet-up is for anyone new to The Journey in the past year so we can connect with you, help you know more about what we're like as a church, and share some next step opportunities. It'll be casual and fun but it will be helpful if you are interested in learning more about other steps to take. You are invited to join us for this 10-minute event right after each service at Journey Church or online at 4:00 pm. Register here for the online event!
You can use the online connect card to submit a prayer request, request any assistance or take a next step. You can find it here.
CURRENT SERIES: ENCOUNTERS WITH CHRIST
In this Sunday series, we are working through the book of Mark at people whose lives were changed because they encountered Jesus. We hope you can take steps to encounter Christ so you can experience your best life. You can watch the message at any time on the series page or the whole service on our Youtube channel.
As part of this series, we are encouraging you to read through the book of Mark to give yourself time to encounter Christ on a regular basis. More details here.
