What to Expect


Celebration Experience on Sunday at 10AM


Casual & Relaxed

At The Journey, you can come as you are – be who you are – and meet people who will accept you for who you are. We don’t have strange dress codes or pushy ushers – but we do have friendly faces ready to make you feel at home. Make plans to join us this Sunday and stop by the Journey Café before service to enjoy a complimentary continental breakfast.

Celebration Experience

Our services are approximately 75  minutes  and are packed full of dynamic praise and worship and relevant teaching. Our worship experience is energetic and passionate – you’ll hear great music from a live band that draws you into the presence of God. Following worship, you’ll hear a down to earth message from our pastor that challenges and inspires your faith.

For the Kids!

Your kids will enjoy our TinyTotz, KidZone, or JourneyKidz classes, the best hour of their week! They are fun and exciting places to learn about God’s love, make friends, and have a blast! We have classes from newborn through fifth grade – each one with it’s own unique environment and loving team of teachers. 


Next Steps

We believe that life is a journey! And God’s desire is for us to fulfill His purpose for our life by taking that journey step-by-step, reaching our potential in Him. At The Journey, we want to empower every believer to follow God’s purpose for their life. There are several ways to do that:


The first step on our journey with God is to receive His free gift of salvation through Jesus Christ. This is the beginning of a new life surrendered and committed to Christ.

The next step after our salvation experience is to be water baptized. It’s an outward sign of an inward change and is a person’s testimony to the world of their commitment to Christ. Baptism takes place at different times during the year.   Click here to receive additional information about Baptism at The Journey.

This is an informal time of fellowship and orientation to The Journey—a time for you to ask questions and share experiences.

Why Give?

When generosity flows from the body of Christ, abundant resources are available to do the work of the ministry.  Giving is also an act of worship.  At The Journey, we believe that God is the Giver of all that we have, so we give back to Him as an act of worship with gratitude in our hearts. 

We give our time, talents, and treasure to be used by Him for His glory.  When you give, you are not giving to a church, an organization, or the church staff; you are giving to God.  He has blessed us to bless others.  He only asks that we give back a portion of what he has entrusted to us.

It is through this commitment of giving that hearts can be reached, lives can be changed, hope can be restored and life is given as we share the Good News of Jesus Christ at home and abroad.

We have created several options for giving so that it is convenient for you.
