CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) Update
At Journey Church, we want to care for our congregation in all respects including the physical well-being of our community. The leadership team at Journey Church has prayerfully decided to suspend all in-person services and gatherings starting Sunday, March 15 through Sunday, June 7. Journey Church will be streaming services in lieu of meeting in person to protect the vulnerable, the elderly and the ones who depend on us to defend them. The decision is not one of fear, but was made with wisdom, discernment and mindfulness.
We will be streaming services on Facebook on Sunday mornings at 10:30 A.M. at https://www.facebook.com/journeychurchmtc, our website and on our YouTube chanel. Please check back to this website and Facebook to stay up to date as we continue to prayerfully consider next steps.
During this time your generosity is essential to continue the mission and vision of our Church. To give online, you can click HERE You can also mail your offering to:

How can I respond spiritually to the Coronavirus (COVID-19)?
While most of what we’re recommending here concerns the practical, we want you to be equipped to handle this situation spiritually, too. The Coronavirus (COVID-19) is yet one more reminder that we live in a fallen world of sickness, sin, suffering, and death. Ultimately, none of us are immune to any of these things. But that’s why the gospel is such good news. God has not left us alone in this world of sickness, sin, suffering, and death. He has come to us in the person of Jesus. The greatest news in all the world is that Jesus lived a life with no sin, died on a cross to pay the price for our sin, and rose from the grave in victory over sin and death. However, anyone anywhere who turns from their sin and trusts in Jesus will be forgiven and restored to relationship with God forever. That means that through Jesus, we never have to fear sickness or death because we know we will have eternal life with God.
God has not called us to live in fear but in faith. As Paul wrote in 2 Timothy 1:7, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.” Together we have faith to receive everything that God has promised to us by His word.
Please join us in praying for the church, both here in the United States and around the world, that we would be a city on a hill and a powerful testimony to the gospel in the midst of this present challenge. We urge you to consider how you might serve your neighbors and community in practical ways. Offer to provide childcare to a single mother while she works. Run errands for elderly neighbors. Share food and other supplies with those in need. Volunteer to deliver bagged lunches for schools or Meals on Wheels. Make yourself available to be the hands and feet of Jesus. Grace and Peace to you.
