Greetings Hanley Road Family!
The summer has flown by, and fall is just around the corner. Vacations are wrapping up and kids have headed back to school. It is the time of year in which we bid farewell to the leisurely summer days and settle back into the rhythms and routines of the year. While not always looked to with eagerness, there is a level of comfort in the consistency that this time of year reintroduces into our lives. 
As we prepare to get back into regular fall rhythms, now is a great time to establish or reestablish spiritual disciplines in our personal and family lives. Perhaps it is picking up again that Bible reading plan that fell by the wayside earlier in the year. Maybe it is getting up a little earlier to spend time in the presence of the Lord before work or class.
This season, as you are resettling your rhythms, I encourage you to make regular Christian community a part of those rhythms. At The Journey Hanley Road, we have numerous ways that Christian community can be a regular part of your spiritual walk. We offer community groups, in which you can know and be known among God’s people. We also have great opportunities for fellowship through our men’s and women’s ministries. This fall, we will also be offering a special Bible study to help you grow in your faith.
As you reset for the fall, I encourage you not to be a lone ranger Christian. Get into community and experience the growth that can only happen from being among the people of God. Jesus has designed it so that “we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love” (Ephesians 4:15-16). I encourage you in this season to get connected. 
Grace and peace,
Pastor Carlos

We're excited to welcome Timothy Harakal and his team to The Journey! Their work will focus on discipling and equipping our Journey community to engage culture with the truth of Jesus from our neighborhoods to the nations.

Kim and Rusty Maple would like to express their thanks and appreciation for the outpouring of love they have received from their Hanley Road church family the last several weeks with the passing of their beloved son Jesse. Please continue to pray for them as they grieve and process this tremendous loss. Thank you for your love.
