Events & Information
THIS Tuesday, June 22nd from 7-8pm in the Auditorium
You do not need to sign up, just show up.
Regular, intentional times of prayer are an essential activity to be a healthy person and a healthy church, especially in these current times.
We want to provide an opportunity for you to gather together with others to pursue God in prayer and worship and enjoy His presence. It will have an impact on your life. Prayer is the difference maker!
Twilight VBS Camp Experience – 4th, 5th & 6th Graders
Thursday & Friday – July 22nd & 23rd
>> CLICK HERE to sign up for VBS
What makes you wonder? What sparks your curiosity? What makes you want to explore, discover, and experiment? Kids are naturally curious, but how can we harness their curiosity to help them wonder about the God who made them? When you’re curious about who God is, it’s easy to find ways to make your relationship with Jesus grow.
We think one of the best places to grow our relationship with God is in the great outdoors. Our first ever Twilight Camp experience will take place July 22nd-23rd on 10 acres in Excelsior Springs where kids can swim, play games, eat food, and have small group Bible time together and an OPTIONAL overnight tent camp out on Friday night.
For two days from 5:30pm to 8:30pm, our awesome team will help your kids learn from early church leaders like Paul, Peter, John, and Timothy, who helped the first Jesus followers wonder what made their stories unique, what gifts God gave them (and how they could use those gifts to serve), what they could learn from others, and how they could spend time with God.
– Thursday starts at 5:30pm with pick up at 8:30pm
– Friday night 5:30pm with pick up at 8:30pm for those NOT staying to camp out
When our Twilight VBS Camp is over Friday night you and your child have the option of staying for a camp out in a tent. You will need to provide everything you need to camp and a parent or close relative MUST stay in order to camp. If you have questions about the optional tent camping or don’t have camping equipment but want to stay please let us know.
Journey KIDS Volunteer Opportunities
Contact Becky DeWitt at email@example.com to let her know that you want SERVE
Do you know the last thing that Jesus said to His followers while he was on earth? Some people call it – The Great Commission: “Go and make disciples”. Duplicate yourselves. Go and make more of you. Take your faith and pass it on to someone else. When we talk about helping kids begin to own their faith, we’re really just talking about discipleship.
The areas you can help us make disciples are:
- Journey Kids Church / K-5th graders
- Preschool / 4 & 5 Year olds
- Early Childhood / 5 months to 3 year olds

Volunteer at the Mobile Food Pantry Outreach
Journey Outreach is excited to partner with Harvesters Food Network to serve our community with a monthly Mobile Food Pantry. This will take place every 3rd Saturday of the month at Journey Church.
We need several volunteers to make this a success! We do need you to sign up in advance. Ages 8 and up can serve. If you try to volunteer for a specific date and it is full you can try choosing a different date. Join your church family and let’s serve our community!

Stand In The Gap Faith Promises & Giving
Pastor Shawn has shared the vision for what Journey Church should look like in our community in our “Stand In The Gap” Sermon Series. You can go to www.journeykc.com/podcast to catch up or relisten to those messages.
Even though we are not completely sure about the direction we will take with our building, we are certain that God has a plan and we want to be ready. It is not about equal gifts, but equal sacrifice. We are asking everyone to consider giving the best gift you can toward the future of Journey Church.
There are 4 ways you can give. You can give cash or check in the giving boxes at the church, give online and learn more about Stand in the Gap at www.journeykc.com/give, or give by text by texting the word BUILDING to 84321
