TG | Members Gift Assessment

May 19th - May 19th, 2018

Spiritual Gifts are about biblical community, "God's action in bringing the church back to being a biblical community with integrity (Acts 2:42-44). By functioning in greater accord with spiritual gifts (1 Corinthians 12), the church is more able to fulfill the great commission (Matthew 28) for greater ministry to the world. And he'll keep working with us until we've completed the work that he has in mind (Philippians 1:6).

Spiritual gifts are divine abilities, distributed by the Holy Spirit, to every believer, for the common good of the body of Christ.

Here at the Journey we hope to have all our members fill out a gift assessment and add their top gifts to their profile page.

TG | Premarital Classes Fall Session

August 5th - 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.

The cost is $125 per couple (two people, one price, one registration). It covers classes, breakfasts, materials, DISC personality profile and mentoring with a married 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.


TG | Journey Youth Sunday Afternoon Baseball

August 13th, 2017

The Dog Days of Summer aren't complete without a Sunday afternoon Cardinals game. We will be making a visit to Busch to watch the Redbirds play the Braves.

Regulations can be found on the Cardinals webpage.

We will meet at Reber Space from 12:00 - 12:30 and head to the ball park promptly at 12:30. We will leave at the end of the 9th inning, even in the event of overtime. We plan to return to Reber Space no later than 5:00 PM

Again, there is no fee for tickets but we do ask that everyone register by August 2nd so that group tickets can be purchased so we can all sit together. Thank you for your cooperation and GO CARDS!!!!
