A MESSAGE FROM PASTOR CARLOS

The New Year is a time of renewal, anticipation, and hope. We are heartened by the reality that we have the opportunity to accomplish things that may have evaded us in the prior year and look forward to another opportunity to get it right. Often, this comes in the form of resolutions to focus anew on our health, family, or our walk with the Lord. 

Not only is the New Year a great time to refocus individually, but it is also a great time for us to renew our focus corporately. This is an opportune time for us to renew our focus on the Lord, His vision for us as a congregation, and to revisit His mandate for us as a body of believers. 

To that end, beginning this Sunday, January 6, we are setting aside the month of January for corporate prayer and fasting at The Journey Hanley Road. Each week during the month, we will be petitioning the Lord in one area, as well as fasting in one area. Also, each Sunday in January, between our morning services from 10:15-10:45 a.m., we will have a special time of corporate prayer in the sanctuary.

Whatever it is that we are seeking the Lord to do in our lives, in our families, in our community, and in our world, it happens after prayer. Please join me during the month of January as we fast, pray, and seek the face of our God together. 

Pastor Carlos 

 
We believe God works through you, your gifts, and your generosity.

A Word from Journey Kids

The launch for the 11 a.m. Journey Kids service will be Sunday, January 27, for ages up to preschool. A huge shout out to the seven new volunteers who have joined our team in the last few months and are making this expansion possible! 

We are still working toward fully expanding the 11 a.m. service by fall of 2019 to offer elementary classrooms (kindergarten to 5th grade). Please be in prayer for this goal, as we strive to service the families of our church. 

If you would like to inquire about becoming a Journey Kids team member, please email Bryce Van Deraa at bvanderaa@thejourney.org
