What to Expect

We know that before you visit a church, you are going to have some questions. Here are some frequently asked questions and answers to better help you understand what you can expect when you come to the Journey Church.

What do you preach?

At the Journey, we believe that the Bible is the perfect, inerrant Word of God, and the Gospel is the foundation for how we should do church. Therefore, we do expository preaching. This means that we preach through entire books of the bible. Occasionally, we will do a topical series now and again. But whether we are continuing in a book of the Bible, or breaking away for a short series, you can always count on the Word of God being preached faithfully and in depth. (2 Timothy 3:16)

What is the worship like?

Music that you hear at the Journey is much like what you would hear on Christian radio. However, we believe that our music should teach something: the Gospel. So whether it’s a contemporary song or a traditional hymn, you can always count on the Gospel being center stage in our worship music. (Isaiah 43:21, John 4:23-24, Psalm 150:6, Hebrews 13:15)

What should I wear?

The Journey is come as you are. You will see everything from Jeans and T-shirts, shorts to the occasional shirt and tie. Whatever you are comfortable wearing, that’s how you should come. God is not concerned with what we wear, only with the condition of our hearts. (James 2:2-4, 1Peter 3:3-4)

What is available for my kids?

The Journey takes our kids programs seriously. Our kids’ ministries cover everything from preschool to high school. On Sundays, we offer our Navigators program. This is our Sunday kids ministry. Our kids have their own worship experience, first thing in the morning, before going to their age appropriate class for their lesson. We have youth activities taking place Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
