Our mission is to help people find and follow Christ
Imagine a church where lives are being changed and people who formerly wanted nothing to do with church are now excited about coming to church on Sundays. That’s exactly what is happening at Journey. (Click here to read actual comments from first-time guests.) Journey began in 2008 with a handful of people meeting in a living room. Today hundreds of people gather each Sunday at Canary Creek Cinemas to worship God together. At least 181 people have committed their lives to Christ, and 95 have been baptized at Journey! Later this year, we will be moving to our new permanent facility at 3062 Hudson St. in Franklin!
What is Journey like?
Our two identical services, at 9:30 AM and 11:00 AM, feature a warm, friendly, casual atmosphere with upbeat music and practical teaching to enable you to experience God in a real way. It is our desire to have people from all generations and walks of life in our church, and we want everyone to feel comfortable and welcome. Church lasts about an hour. Visit the Journey Cafe between services for FREE coffee and treats.
What are the messages like?
The teaching is expository (which simply means it brings out the meaning of a particular text or passage), relevant (you can relate it to your life situation) and applicable (you can apply it to your life). Sometimes we work through an entire book of the Bible and other times we discuss current topics and issues which might incorporate passages from more than one book at a time.
What is the music like?
Our music is a mix of contemporary worship sings and hymns. Sometimes we do the hymns in a more contemporary way, and others times we do them in their original style. Here are some examples of songs you might hear at Journey:
- Jesus Paid it All/O Praise the One – Kristian Stanfill
- Open Up Our Eyes – Elevation Worship
- Christ is Enough – Hillsong
- Revelation Song – Kari Jobe
What do you have for kids?
We have lots of families with kids, so we have a Nursery for children from newborn to two, Jr. KidZone for kids from three years old through Kindergarten, and KidZone for kids from first through fifth grade. For kids in sixth grade through high school, we have our Youth Ministry, which meets on Wednesday nights.
What do I wear?
Most people dress casual, wearing jeans and shorts, and some people like to dress up. Wear whatever is comfortable for you, but clothing is not optional.
Who goes to Journey?
We welcome people no matter where they are on their spiritual journey and no matter what is going on in their lives. Therefore, we have people of all ages and from a variety of backgrounds. Some are getting to know God and the Bible for the first time, while others have been Christians for many years.
What denomination are you?
Journey Church is interdenominational, which means we have people from a variety of backgrounds and walks of life. For information about what we believe, click here.
