welcome

It all starts with God's love.  We believe face-to-face moments with God can change everything. This is the heart behind what we do as church.

When you visit, you’ll meet people just like you – common folks trying to live uncommon lives in a way that is real, smart, brave, and fun.  And, even sometimes longing to see God clearly in everyday events and places.

As church, we try to be practical and helpful.  There are times, though, we look for God of the supernatural, the holy and the wholly other who can touch our souls in ways we can't imagine.  You had to be there to experience it.  

We're drawn to the life and teachings of Jesus.  We believe that Jesus' way of living and being is a counter-cultural journey of forgiveness, acceptance of others, peacemaking, generosity, love, a never-ending story, always welcoming story that can transform each of us.

"Love one another.  In the same way I loved you, you love one another. — John 13:34

Worship

We are deeply aware of our call to share in the good news that God is love and that Christ is in all.  This summer, we'll answer this call by worshiping this God of love and opening up Christ’s welcome table outside our normal Sunday morning church service. 

We are going to experiment a little — we'll try some worship services out in the community and some creative services at Journey of Faith.  Click on the link to learn more about when and where our worship services are happening this summer.

"Because Your love is better than life, I will praise You.  I will praise You as long as I live ..."  –Psalm 63:3

Justice & Service

Journey of Faith doing yardwork at Hope Clinic in Ypsilanti (in the picture above) ...

Handing out hygiene kits to the homeless in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti …

Partnering with seniors to make plastic sleeping mats for people living outside …

Offering a place for the homeless to wash their dirty clothes and shower …

Helping a homeless family move into more stable housing — not just with items to make a place feel like home, but with our love, presence and encouragement ...

“Serving” is a word similar to “volunteering,” but it means so much more.  Serving shows people that they matter to us and that they matter to God.  We look forward to seeing what God is going to do through you. 

"Lord, teach me how to celebrate you, share your blessings with others, and carry my faith into my daily life."

Small Groups

Life is not meant to be lived alone.  We were created to experience life with other people, and that’s why we encourage you to get into a small group.  The “church” is not a building, a denomination, or a business organization.  It’s a family of people who, at times, gather together. 

Small groups typically get together for 6-8 weeks to allow for easy start and finish points. Be a part of experiencing real life change by growing your faith, living with purpose and building community with others.

"God wants in on our lives and wants us in on the lives of others."
