June Newsletter *|MC_PREVIEW_TEXT|* News and Events at The Journey South County View this email in your browser SUMMER AT THE JOURNEY 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 two 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! 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 Journey July July at South County will be a time for us to simplify our services, events, and offerings to give rest to volunteers, especially those serving in Journey Kids. Our services during this month will be slightly shorter with worship that will engage the whole family. We will be having limited Journey Kids (ages 3 and under) during this month.
