SEPTEMBER NEXT STEPS & 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.
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.

Volunteering is a great way you can play a part to make The Journey a great place for people to explore & experience God. More details or sign up to Try it here.
PARTNERSHIP: TEAM NIGHT
Partnership is playing a part of something bigger than yourself. It's a commitment to own and live out the mission as part of our church. Find more details here.
We have our first team night on September 19.
NETWORK TEAMS are a great way to be part of something bigger than yourself because, together, we can share God's love by impacting our community and grow closer to God.
Fruitport & Tri-Cities Network Project
Food Truck & Roadside Clean-Up Project, Sept. 11, 12:00-2:30pm.
We'll be meeting at Journey Church on Quarterline for two projects and you can choose which one you'd like to help with. (1)For the Food Truck we'll be helping pass out food to people in need. We'll also need greeters/sign holders and registration help. (2) To help care for our environment and to be good neighbors, we'll be doing trash clean up in the ditches along the roads near our building.
Connection Nights are casual and fun get-togethers where we take time to recap the Journey's recent series, take next steps, and learn more about our relationship with God together! Come try it out and we have team leaders to help you feel welcome when you arrive!
