Dear Journey Church Family,
As we have been hearing for the past week, “ Don’t panic, don’t fear the Coronavirus, respect it”.
We now find ourselves in unchartered territory. All of us can honestly say, “ I have never seen anything like This before “.
Due to the serious nature of the Coronavirus Pandemic, and by following the guidelines issued by The CDC, The ADPH ( The Alabama Department of Public Health), our State and National Government Leadership, and through prayer, we will not be able to meet together for worship at the Building in our usual way for the next two weeks.
Please hear this: Journey Church is NOT shutting down!
We will be worshiping this coming Sunday but not in our traditional way. We are currently working on how we will stream our worship time. Please be sure to read our email updates and instructions on how to plug in and participate. We have a plan, we have a method, and we will be informing you as soon as possible.
For over 10 years at Journey Church, I have preached and taught about relationship, not religion. Our faith which is lived out by prayer, Bible Study, fellowship, discipleship, and ministry, will continue on. This current crisis cannot and will not affect who we are, The Church. Romans 8:35-39
We are still conducting ministry sign ups. We still need servants in every area. Please email Elaine McGhee at email@example.com and let her know where you will want to serve. We need to complete our schedule of Ministry so that when we return to Public meetings, we will be ready.
We will be signing up for Small Groups. Be looking for Dean’s email with the groups we will be offering this semester.
We will find new ways of how we can still live out our faith; by using the Media, texting, emails, streaming videos and so much more. Prayerfully, It won’t be long until we are back shaking hands, hugging and enjoying the fellowship of the Body of Christ by being together, worshiping together, serving, ministering and sharing God’s love.
I believe with all my heart that during this time, Journey Church is going to experience growth in an in depth way like never before. This is our opportunity to grow and to shine for our Lord Jesus Christ.
Please pause and read John 14:27
I will be sending out daily words of encouragement and please know that I am available and you can call me, text me, and email me anytime. Our Leadership Team is ready to help you and are working diligently to lead us through this crisis.
Please be reading all emails and check our webpage for updates.
Your Pastor, Friend
