God continues to work . . .
2017 will forever be special because it is the year that Journey Church started. Years from now we will be able to look back and thank God for His faithfulness to us in the early days. We are now in a new year and God wants to do a new thing that will showcase His faithfulness once again. He wants to do a new work in all of our lives. He wants to teach us new things. He wants to work in a new way in people's lives. He wants us to try new things. He wants to make Himself known to new people. It's a new year and it's going to be a great year. I know we will be stretched and pushed and challenged in ways that will test all of us, but God is faithful, He always has been, and He always will be.
The theme for Journey Church this year will be "Better. Together." In every area we want to be better. We want to advance the vision and mission God has given us in our community in a better way. We want to disciple people better. We want to serve people better. We want to lead people to a better walk with Christ. We want to see people step into a better life as they meet and get to know Christ. We want better preaching (no comments). None of this is possible without all of us committing to being better together. God loves unity and togetherness. He blesses his followers who give their lives to the Gospel together. I invite you to be better together. It's going to be a great year! Let's see what God can do through us! I can't wait to hear and see the stories of what God does.
