Hey, JRNY Church –
We just wanted to check in and give you a couple updates this week. The 245 Fund, that many of you have given to, has already enabled JRNY to meet the critical needs of families across our community, and we are continuing to meet additional needs as we hear of them. This church has stepped up and continued to give in spite of the unknowns surrounding us. We are so extremely proud, but even more thankful to God, because we know it’s your growth and trust in Him, that allows you to live your life in this way.
The restrictions put in place, have allowed us the opportunity to engage in new ways online, with the world around us. Our content has seen four times the amount of views that it normally does in a week, and six people have let us know they have given their lives to Jesus. We’ve also had several others let us know, through our online info card, that they are exploring what it means to have a relationship with Jesus. We’ve then been able to follow up with conversations and resources to help them better understand the love of God and what a relationship with Him can be.
Many are searching frantically for truth and stability in this time. Just in our office alone, we have friends and family of staff members,, who have been prayed over for years, that are now asking questions about God, tuning in to our live experiences, and seeking to know truth and peace. We are certain you are seeing the same thing, and just like Steve said on Sunday, let’s not live scared, but scatter as a church. With that said, ‘Let’s Go, Bring ‘em Home!’
We anxiously await the day we are able to meet again in our church buildings, but until then, we love you, we are praying over your families, and we encourage you to remain connected with our church family online.
THE 245 FUND
As we continue to face the spread of the Covid-19 virus, we as a church have the opportunity to be the light in a dark and uncertain world. In Acts 2:45, the early church set for us an example on how to come together to share the Gospel and meet needs during difficult times through their actions and with their resources. Now, we desire to do the same! If you would like to financially help those directly affected by Covid-19, or if you or someone you know has been affected and could use some help follow this LINK!
Let’s be the church!
Hi, JRNY Church Family!
Life continues to be impacted in so many ways because of the spread of Covid-19. With so much of everyday life being impacted we believe that now, more than ever, the church needs to rise up. We believe that every obstacle also brings an opportunity! We know the church is much bigger than it’s buildings and we see opportunity everywhere we look.
This past Sunday, we hosted our first ever “strictly” online experience and as of now, there have been over 8,000 views! What’s even more exciting than the amount of views and interaction is the fact that 4 people responded to the gospel of Jesus Christ during our time together online!
At this time, when it would be easy for us to let fear cause us to hold tightly to what we have, we are going to live up to our core value of being a church of contributors, through our actions. We want to help those in need around us and have set up the 245 Fund for this purpose. In the book of Acts, when the early church came under hardship, it forced the spread of the gospel through their movement and actions. We believe we also have the opportunity to further the gospel through our actions during this difficult time. If you would like to give so that those in need may have essentials to get them through this time until work picks back up, you can do so by clicking HERE then choose “245 Fund” from the dropdown menu.
Also, be on the lookout this week and the weeks ahead on our social media platforms for continued resources to help you get through your week! Things like, live mid-week worship times together, JRNY Kids fort making adventures, motivational moments powered by God’s word, and more.
We are working hard during this time to remain connected as a church so we can continue to be THE CHURCH to the world around us! There is an opportunity tucked within the disruptions and dismay, let’s seize it and go change the world!

Good Afternoon JRNY Church –
In the wake of Covid-19 circulating our area quickly, we are adhering to government recommendations and will not be having any church experiences for the next two weeks. You will still be able to catch a live experience through our social media outlets as Pastor Steve and a small amount of staff will still be leading us in worship and preaching at 10A on 3.15 + 3.22. For those with children, we will also provide a link to access materials for the kids’ Bible lessons and crafts.
We are obviously disappointed by the circumstances, but want to do our part to help stop the spread of this virus quickly, so we can soon resume normal activity. We will keep you posted about what will take place after the 22nd as we continue to stay advised.
Let’s continue to pray for our nation and its leaders as they navigate through difficult decisions. We encourage you to follow the recommended precautions to help see us through to the other side of this pandemic. Let’s all work together to get through this. Remember that our hope and trust is in Him and we do not have to live in fear.
We’ll see you Sunday 10A on Facebook Live!
