July at Tower Grove will be a time for us to simplify our services, events, and offerings, and give rest to our volunteers. Pastor John encourages us all to embrace rest so we may enjoy rejuvenation in the joy of ministry.

  • Sunday services changing to 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.
  • Journey Kids in worship for services
  • Shorter services with fellowship time after service
We're launching into a new summer sermon series this week – looking at what it means to have a summer well spent. We'll focus on topics like rest, relationships, community, and more over the next couple of months. We're excited to see you this weekend as we dive into this new series!
One way we hope to lean into what it looks like to live an intentional lifestyle of rest and relationship is through community-building opportunities and experiences both at The Journey and across the St. Louis metro area. Here are some upcoming dates for the month of June – mark your calendars! View a full list of summer opportunities here.
Kingdom Sessions Release Concert | June 7, 8 p.m.
Tower Grove Worship Leader Russ Mohr is debuting "The Kingdom Sessions" album on June 7 at The Ready Room! The record explores themes of faith, community, justice, love, forgiveness, and reconciliation – celebrating what is good and beautiful in humanity while confronting and lamenting what is broken, all while looking with hope to a better future. Check The Journey St. Louis app for more info, to learn how to receive a free download from June 14-30, and to purchase tickets to the show!

Theology at the Bottleworks | June 19, 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. | Schlafly Bottleworks
Theology at the Bottleworks is a monthly public discussion that takes up the most important issues of our times among an amazing diversity of interesting people.  Join the conversation this month as we discuss “Safe and secure.” According to Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, safety and security are second only to our physiological needs for food and water. Can we be safe in a world where dangers and seemingly endless reports of mass shootings, online hackers, or other threats abound? What does it mean to feel safe and secure? What is our responsibility for the physical, emotional, and psychological safety of others? Come have a brew, share your view and lend an ear to others.

Alethea Film Screening | June 21, 7-9:30 p.m.
The Journey is partnering with the Alethea Project, a new documentary screening series taking place in large evangelical churches across the United States. It seeks to use nonfiction film as a means to encourage productive, civil dialogue around difficult social topics, model bridge-building between churches and secular arts organizations, and grow appreciation for the art and craft of nonfiction film. We'll screen The Interrupters at The Journey Hanley Road in June! Stay after the film for a moderated discussion. Register today
