Gathered and Scattered:

We are journeying together through uncharted times.

As we mourn the large and small losses that the COVID-19 virus has brought into to all our lives, we continue to pray for recovery and restoration. In these difficult days when so much has been taken away from our lives, we are also finding meaning by focusing our attention on Jesus.

Loving God also means loving each other. So, we have adjusted the rhythms of Journey to support and connect with each other, even at a distance. Jesus said that his followers are his Church, not some building or organization. Wouldn’t it be amazing if this tragic pandemic allowed us to live that idea out in deeper ways than we have ever experienced before?

Here’s what gathering looks like at Journey while we’re scattered in our homes:

Sundays @ 10am. Join us for our weekend gathering on our website, on our YouTube channel, and on Facebook Live. Our live gathering is now 100% virtual, with pastors and musicians collaborating from their homes. If you can’t attend live, recorded livestreams are available on demand.

Weekdays at noon. Have lunch and hangout with Pastor Suzie Lind on Instagram Live.

Weekdays on demand. The new Journey Now podcast, with contributions from Journey pastors and staff, starts your day with stories, encouragement and prayer—all in 10 minutes or less. Listen on the journeytn.com messages page or subscribe on iTunes.

Wednesdays @ 6:30pm Journey Student Ministries gather via zoom together as well as throughout the week with their Villages. Please follow JSM on Instagram for up to date information or reach out to Cary@journeytn.com for grade level information.

Wednesdays @ 7pm. Pastor Tim Timmons leads an online Realign & Pray meeting on Facebook Live. (also available later on demand)

Throughout your week. Journey artists and musicians post home concerts every week on social media. Check our Facebook and Instagram feeds for the latest posts.

You can also binge on staff blogs, book recommendations and longer podcasts at journey-exchange.com.

Together, we are refined in community, so we want to help each other beyond our regular gatherings. Here are some ways we can do that:

NEED HELP?
If COVID-19 creates special challenges due to your health, and you are a part of our Journey family, let Sam Barnhart know at sam@journeytn.com. We are here to help.

CAN YOU HELP?
For the rest of us, let’s think and pray about what each of us might do to help others. Who in your neighborhood or your circle of friends needs a hand with groceries or errands?

We also have a list of organizations and volunteering opportunities for tornado relief on our website.

FAITH IN GIVING
Everyone is taking a financial hit in these circumstances—families, businesses and even churches. If you are able to care for your own needs, we urge you to continue to be faithful in your giving to Journey.

Though we are working hard to be good stewards of every dollar, we need to keep staff salaries in place as our teams work harder than ever. Of course, we are finishing work on our new building so that it will be ready when we’re able to gather together again in person.

Please continue to support our efforts by giving online, via Venmo (Journey-Church-1) or by mailing a check to us at Journey Church, 1600 Wilson Pike, Brentwood, TN 37027.

We will continue to communicate on this page as often as needed to make sure you’re updated on our plans. Please also sign up for our weekly email newsletter at the bottom of our website home page.

Be safe and stay healthy, Journey. We love you all and look forward to connecting with you in new ways during this time. Please let me know if you have any questions or need to talk further.
