The Journey commits to support parents as they raise the next generation to love God.

TG | Worship Equip Class: "Why Worship Matters: How Corporate Worship Shapes Our Faith, Lives, and Communities."

January 7th - January 21st, 2018

Worshiping together is the one thing that the church body does all together on a regular basis. Our practices and experiences shape how we view God, ourselves, and the world around us. In this three week Equip Class, we'll take an in-depth look at what happens when we gather each week to commune with God and one another in worship.

Whether you love to passionately participate in worship services, or don't at all; whether you're pretty indifferent, or it all just seems strange to you; wherever you find yourself on the topic of worship, this class is for you! Come discover why we do what we do in the corporate worship setting, and how it can and should be a meaningful part of the Christian life.

Classes are held Jan 7, 14, and 21 at 9am in Reber Space. Registrations are limited, so sign up right away and reserve your seat!

January 20th - February 27th, 2018

$15 - $20

Karis House is holding a 7 session Equip Class at The Journey Metro East that will be focused on the science of relationships, child development and strengthening the parent-child relationship. Participants will be given practical tools to care well for children in the midst of big emotions, difficult and confusing behaviors and a growing brain. Attendees will be led through a series of discussion topics in order to construct an understanding of the role of a parent in the flourishing of their family, as well as the role of the family in the flourishing of God's kingdom in our communities.

This class is for anyone who cares for children: parents, grandparents, foster parents, Journey Kids volunteers, professionals who work with children and anyone who wants to better understand how to love and care for children well.

Due to the layout of the class we ask that you only sign-up if you can attend all of the sessions. We also strongly encourage couples to attend together.

Individual: $20 Couple: $35

Childcare will be available for those who register for an additional cost of $15 per child. That cost will cover all 7 sessions of childcare.

If you are registering as a couple or wish to reserve childcare, please be sure to include your spouse and children in your registration.

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.
