JUNE NEXT STEPS & CONNECT CARD
WELCOME TO THE JOURNEY
Welcome to Journey Church. You can get a religious experience anywhere. We focus on taking steps in our relationships and we believe that God wants to have a personal relationship with you. We want to encourage you to explore or take steps to experience more of God. In Him, we find our best life. If you're new to Journey Church, fill out the guest card here. If you're at church, you can fill out the card in the seat and bring it to the Next Steps Center in the lobby. We will send you a gift card to say thanks for joining us and we promise not to harass you.
You can use the online connect card to submit a prayer request, request any assistance or take a next step. You can find it here.
DISCOVER THE JOURNEY - JUNE 27
You're invited to this event for anyone new to The Journey in the past year so we can connect with you a little, help you know more about The Journey, and share some next step opportunities. It'll be casual and fun, but it will be helpful if you are interested in learning more about other steps to take. Meet directly after each service with Ashleigh at the Next Steps Center on site or sign up on the connect card above to schedule a private virtual sesson.
CURRENT SERIES: ENCOUNTERS WITH CHRIST
In this Sunday series, we are working through the book of Mark at people whose lives were changed because they encountered Jesus. We hope you can take steps to encounter Christ so you can experience your best life. You can watch the message at any time on the series page or the whole service on our Youtube channel.
As part of this series, we are encouraging you to read through the book of Mark to give yourself time to encounter Christ on a regular basis. More details here.

We will have Church on the Lawn at all next month. There will be one service only outside at 11:00 am with limited Journey Kids inside. Bring your own chair & coffee. We will move inside if weather is an issue.

JOURNEY KIDS: SERVE ONE SUMMER SUNDAY
Want to show appreciation and have some fun? Our Journey Kids volunteers build relationships with kids by serving consistently through the school year, so we like to give them a break in the summer. You can step in to serve with kids just one Sunday in July or August. We prepare all the materials, you choose what age group and date works best for you. Sign up on the Connect Card.
MORE STEPS & RESOURCES
We will be doing baptisms in August this year in Lake Michigan. If you are interested in getting baptized, get more info here & register here.
YEAR IN REVIEW
Here's a booklet to recap this past year and all God has done in and through our church.
Partnership is playing a part of something bigger than yourself. It's a commitment to own and live out the mission as part of our church. Find more details here.
If you normally give at church in the boxes or the kiosk, you can still give online here. Thanks for your generosity and giving to the mission. Also for any new giver who signs up for recurring giving this month, we have a donor who will give our church a $500 bonus.
10% GIVING CHALLENGE
The Bible talks about a standard for giving called the tithe — tithe means 10%. We don't force anyone to do this or try to guilt people into giving. We don't even pass an offering plate at church, but we do want people to experience God's blessing & money plays a part in it. It's really about trusting God, not money. So we offer a money-back guarentee 10% Giving Challenge. We've seen this challenge become a turning point for many people to experience the blessings of following Jesus and to find freedom for financial debt & worry. Considering the challenge? Details here. Also for anyone who signs up for this challenge this month, we have a donor who will give our church a $500 bonus.
The Growth Pathway is a series of next steps to help you grow in your relationship with Jesus. It's not a list of tasks to complete, instead, it's a guide to give some direction to continue to move forward in your faith. Find the guide here.
You can find all of the songs we play at church and our Spotify playlist here. Take some time to listen and focus on God.
