OCTOBER NEXT STEPS

OCT NEXT STEPS 2021

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. We will send you a gift card to say thanks for joining us and we promise not to harass you. You can use the online connect card here to submit a prayer request, request any assistance or take a next step.

Are you new to church or have a desire to be more involved?  We want to invite you to a Discover The Journey breakfast on Sunday, October 24 during the first service (9:30-10:25am) at church. It will give you a chance to connect with others, hear about what The Journey is all about and some next step opportunities! It's a casual, no pressure thing and we would love to have you join us! (Journey Kids Check-in is available) Register here.

VOLUNTEERING

SERVE WEEK: Oct. 11-17
This fall we focused on being part of something bigger. We're looking for God to do something bigger in our lives and through our church. So we are doing a whole week of service projects this month for a bigger impact. Serve at as many as you want. Find more details here.

BEGINNINGS CLASS
Four Wednesday Nights starting October 27, 7:00-8:15pm. Are you curious about a relationship with God, new to church, or coming back to church after being away for a while? A Beginnings Class is a great place to start exploring faith and learn more about a relationship with God. In a casual setting, we can also discuss topics or questions you or others may have about church, faith, or God. DETAILS & SIGN UP HERE
