Welcome to The Journey

The Journey at Home

These are extraordinary times, but we are no ordinary family. Gatherings at The Journey will look different as we do our part to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus and protect those we care about most.
So, we are bringing our Gatherings to you, wherever you may be.
Gather with us Sunday Morning at 10 am as we go Live on Facebook with Worship.
If you are unable to get on Facebook, tap the link below to watch it on our site. If you miss the live service, the message will be available shortly after here on our site, on facebook, and youtube.

Journey Kids at Home

Parents, we want your children to have some fun too! Bring Journey Kids to your Living Room and check out some additional resources for the whole family.

I give you a new command: Love one another. Just as I have loved you, you are also to love one another.

John 13:34


For the next several weeks, we will have daily prayer

opportunities available.

Daily Prayer

With the desire to keep you as safe as possible and maintain “the shelter at home” order issued by the governor we have changed how we will pray together corporately. We will be praying together over the phone. Start times for the prayer will be:
5 pm Monday, Wednesday, & Friday
12 pm Tuesday, Thursday, & Saturday
To participate simply call: (971) 224-6576
Conference Code: 563636
A pastor or elder will lead the prayer and you will have the opportunity to pray, but you are not required to pray.

Prayer Walks

Join Us at 6pm on Wednesday Evenings at both our locations for prayer walks around our communities.
Please help us keep our communities safe and practice social distancing during these walks, but feel free to pray for and encourage those around you and those you encounter.

Prayer Request

If you are unable or uncomfortable coming in during one of the prayer times, please submit a prayer request below. If you wish, a pastor or elder will respond to your request.
Prayers can be submitted anonymously and are not shared with The Journey community.
