Is it Time to Take a Journey?

Perhaps you’ve been hearing about The Journey.  The program is being finalized and the Journey Team is anxiously awaiting the opportunity to share this incredible weekend experience with you.

What is The Journey?

The Journey is a spiritual renewal program intended to strengthen the local church through the development of Christian disciples and leaders.  The Journey experience is a 72-hour short course in Christianity, comprised of talks and activities led by clergy and lay persons.  Themes of God’s grace, disciplines of faith, Christian discipleship, and what it means to be the church will be explored.  ­The weekend is wrapped in prayer, meditation, special times of worship and daily celebration of Holy Communion. 

The “Journey Community” is made up of those who have attended a Journey weekend or a similar weekend offered by many other denominations.  The Journey Community supports the weekend experience through prayer and other acts of love and self-giving.  The Journey will begin on Thursday evening and conclude mid-afternoon on Sunday.  The weekend is open to adults over 18 years of age and offers the experience to open and affirming groups throughout Texas. 

The three-day Journey experience and the follow-up groups strengthen and renew Christian people as disciples of Jesus Christ and as active members of the body of Christ in mission to the world.
