TG | Premarital Classes Fall Session

September 30th, 2017

Marriage is an important relationship, one that we believe reflects God’s unconditional love for humanity (Eph. 5), and is meant to be a lifelong covenant commitment between one man and one woman. We want to help you prepare for, and maintain, a successful marriage. Our premarital program consists of a series of four group classes. Couples are paired with a mentor couple who will walk through the program with you. The classes and mentoring are open to engaged couples as well as recently married couples.

Register here for Premarital Classes to be held on Aug 5, & 26 and Sept. 16 & 30 . The four classes meet on Saturday mornings from 8:30am-NOON at The Journey Tower Grove in Reber Basement.

There is a 100% discount applied at checkout for the second person which will resolve the total to $125/couple.

*Married couples, these classes are bent toward pre-marrieds, but every marriage mentor will tell you that these classes will benefit you greatly for years to come. It is God's word, after all.

Womens bible study

Southern Illinois | Women's Bible Study

October 2nd - November 6th, 2017

The study begins Monday October 2 at 6:30pm. We will meet every Monday for 6 weeks.

Deadline to sign up is September 14. Childcare is provided.

WCJS | Parent / Small Group Leader Breakfast

October 8th, 2017

Parents, ever wonder what your child's small group leader's favorite childhood memory is (that was a tongue twister), or ever wonder what is the weirdest thing they have ever eaten, or maybe what is their most memorable moment with your child so far? We know you trust our ministry and for that... we thank you. Seriously, thank you.

But we also know that you would love to get to know the adults who are investing so much time into your children and believe me, they want to know you well also. So come out on Sunday, October 8th at 8:30 AM to meet your child's small group leader and give them the opportunity to get to know you as well. Let's take the first step in partnering together in bringing your child to Jesus. It takes a village, and we are committed to being a part of your village if you'll have us.

Child dedications 01

ME | Fall Child Dedications

October 15th, 2017

Child Dedication is a special time for parents and guardians to publicly announce their intention to raise their child(ren) in a way that teaches about God and honors Him.

The Journey recognizes that parents are responsible to raise the next generation to know the greatness of God. We dedicate our kids because we want to partner with our church family–making a commitment to raise our children in light of God’s promises. The Journey commits to support parents as they raise the next generation to love God.

On Sunday, October 15th, The Journey Metro East will hold child dedications during the 9 AM and 11 AM Services. If you are interested in dedicating your child(ren), please register HERE.

To participate in the child dedication you will need to complete the registration form, email in a photo of your child, and complete a Child Dedication class at The Journey. This class will be held during the 11 AM service on Sunday, October 8th. Childcare will be provided.

After you have filled out the registration form, please email your photo of your child to jstamm@thejourney.org. If you have any questions please feel free to email me. Please pray for our families and the next generation of our church!

Baptism package 05

TG | Baptisms

October 21st - October 22nd, 2017

We believe the Bible clearly communicates baptism as a vital step of discipleship and obedience to Christ. The sacrament is a symbol of the washing away of the old self and commitment in front of fellow believers that you have been made new by Jesus and are committed to following him. Visit http://thejourney.org/baptism to watch story videos on the impact baptism has had on the lives people in our church. Our next baptisms are on October 21st and 22nd.

Child dedications slide

TG | Child Dedications: October 28th & 29th

October 22nd - October 29th, 2017

Child Dedication is a special time for parents and guardians to publicly announce their intention to raise their child(ren) to love God and to love others. We as a church family commit to support parents through encouragement, equipping, prayer, and ministries like Journey Kids and Journey Youth as they come along side parents to raise the next generation to love God.

Here you can register for the Child Dedication (October 28th&29th during all services) and required class (October 22nd during the 11:00am service). The class will meet in the office area above Reber Space. This class will discuss biblical foundations to raising your children to love Jesus and allow you to get to know other parents in our Tower Grove community. Please send a photo of your child to infotg@thejourney.org by October 16th.

"He established a testimony in Jacob and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers to teach to their children, that the next generation might know them, the children yet unborn, and arise and tell them to their children, so that they should set their hope in God and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments;" (Psalm 78:5-7 ESV)

WC | Dear White Christian

October 23rd - November 13th, 2017

If we are honest, we must admit that we see the issues involving race differently often because our experiences have been so different. If we have any hope of reconciliation, we must begin to ask questions of each other in the pursuit of understanding. We hope that you will join us for a four week class that will aim to help us do just that. It will begin on Monday, October 23, from 6:30-8:00pm, at West County. While not required to participate in the class and discussions, Dear White Christian is recommended.

JS | Fall Retreat 2017

November 10th - November 12th, 2017

$0 - $135

Join us this year for our 5th annual Fall Retreat at Lake Williamson.

Jesus is presented to us with many filters in our 2017 American culture, but what would it mean to see him #Unfiltered? What if we saw him without the words of our crazy aunt Sally, the IG memes, and political left and rights rendering of this man that changed the world in only 33 years on earth? Jesus is worth looking at #Unfiltered and this weekend we will do just that. The typical black light dodgeball, crazy group games, AMAZING camp food ;), bonfires, basketball, nine-square-in-the-air, volleyball, fishing, and high ropes courses will be there... and this year we are adding an escape room. So get ready to have the time of your life... or at least the time of your fall season with Journey Students November 10th-12th. We hope you can make it.

IMPORTANT NOTES: **If you miss the Early Bird Special pricing of $135 the cost for the Fall Retreat is $180 AND after October 15th you will need to arrange transportation to and from the Fall Retreat for your child if spots are no longer available. **

High ropes course (55 slots available) and escape room (35 slots available) are on a first come first serve basis.
