THIS WEEK:

>CURRENT MESSAGE SERIES – LIFE IN THESE UNITED STATES – WHAT NOW?: Politically, it seems that the United States is far from ‘United’. The destructive chaos of recent days reveal that rage and anxiety have taken center stage in our land. How should a follower of Christ interpret these events? How do we form a Christian response? What can we do, personally, to offer a voice of clarity and calm? Join us on January 24 and 31 for a MOST IMPORTANT conversation on current events, and remember to invite others needing stability in uncertain times!

>UPCOMING MESSAGE SERIES – SERVANT KING – A Study of Mark’s Gospel: Starting February 7th, we’ll be returning to our engaging look at Mark’s story of Jesus’ life. Each week will provide a focused, in-depth historical examination of Jesus’ mission lived out among a diverse cast of characters–the followers, the desperate, the curious, the antagonistic, and the apathetic.

WEEKLY UPDATES: Watch HERE for videos that include biblical teaching, encouragement for parents, worship tips and 3 Things in 2 Minutes.

ADDITIONS TO THE JOURNEY CAMPUS: Yay God! We have acquired Medify air purifiers for use across the Journey campus—including to Big Room, the Foyer, the Portable and all classrooms. We continue to do everything we can to make meeting together as safe as possible!
