What an incredible night of worship we had this past Sunday with YOU, Journey family! Check out our Facebook album for some of our favorite moments from the evening – thank you to all who came out to celebrate with us! VIEW PHOTO ALBUM WE CELEBRATED FIVE YEARS IN SOUTH COUNTY! On Sunday, September 9, we celebrated five years as a church! Thank you so much for coming out and joining us! We had a wonderful time of celebration and praising God for His faithfulness through the years. UPCOMING EVENTS & NEWS We believe the Bible clearly communicates baptism as a vital step of discipleship and obedience to Christ. The sacrament is a symbol of the washing away of the old self and commitment in front of fellow believers that you have been made new by Jesus and are committed to following him. Please register below if you'd like to be baptized on Sunday, October 14, during our 10 a.m. Sunday service. REGISTER NOW Child Dedication is a special time for parents and guardians to publicly announce their intention to raise their child(ren) in a way that teaches about God and honors Him. The Journey recognizes that parents are the primary disciplers and faith-trainers of their children, to raise the next generation to know the greatness of God. We dedicate our kids because we want to partner with our church family–making a commitment to raise our children in light of God’s promises. The Journey commits to support parents as they raise the next generation to love God. On October 28, The Journey South County will hold a child dedication during the 10 a.m. service. REGISTER TODAY One of our church community groups is proud to partner with the Kurt Warner First Things First Foundation and Operation Food Search for the 18th Annual Warners’ Warm-up Coat Drive by serving as a drop-off location for new and gently-used coats of all sizes. The drive will take place from November 1-14. We encourage everyone to donate and help us spread the word by telling your family, friends, and neighbors. You can drop off coats at The Journey South County on Sunday, October 28, and Sunday, November 4. Journey Students is for students who are in 6th-12th grade and takes place on Sunday evenings at The Journey South County from 6-8 p.m. Our mission is to partner with your family to help your children love God more today than they did yesterday, be discipled in the love and truth of Jesus, and to trust Jesus with their today, tomorrow, and eternity. At Journey Students, we are committed to this happening in a fun and safe environment that your student will want to return to every week. For more information email studentsSC@thejourney.org.
