Family Matters to Us

We believe that family was created by God.

Your family is very important to  God and us --- In this world, we need to protect against the many things that attempt to destroy our families. We believe God has called the Church to partner with families to help them become strong and centered in Christ.

Journey Kids --- Childrens' Vision

Building a strong foundation in Christ.
Nursery --- PreSchool --- Elementary

We believe your kids are your legacy, and we want to help you keep them safe while teaching them of the love that God has for them. All our certified volunteers are thoroughly reviewed and background checked, and they will love and care for your kids as if they were their own.

Journey Youth --- Youth Vision

Guiding our teens to gain independence and freedom in Christ.

Every week, we gather to be ourselves in the glory of who God created us to be. We like to do things a little different from the way our parents do them. At our youth night, we have energetic music, activities, and teaching that’s just for us.

We need each other. So we get together in smaller groups to share and support each other. We’re more than just friends. We’re partnering with each other in life and discovering what it is like to start doing it on our own. But we aren’t alone.

It’s not just for us, though. We have to serve the world around us. YouthServe is our ongoing effort to love the world around us the way that God has loved us. We know what it’s like to need a little help, and we have committed to being a force of love to the world that is hurting around us.

Journey Students --- Young Adult Vision

We'll stick with you for all four (or five) years.

Cell Groups are the core of our student experience. Our student Cell Group leaders are committed to being spiritual leaders.

Are you interested in being a part of our college groups? We would love to have you.

Parent Resources

Family Counseling can be a game-changer when both parents are committed to it. As a single parent, counseling can be a huge support when you are raising children alone. Blended families have their own unique issues that can be worked through in a supportive environment. Feel free to contact the pastor and to set up an initial meeting.

Adopting a child from foster care is a life-changing decision. Opening your heart and home to a child in desperate need of a supportive - loving - family is a beautiful choice. Contact the office is you want more info. 330-749-0304

The purpose of child dedication is really more for the parents than the children. The parents are publicly pledging themselves to follow the command of scripture, (Ephesians 6:4 NLT) “… do not provoke your children to anger by the way you treat them. Rather, bring them up with the discipline and instruction that comes from the Lord.” This ceremony is meaningless unless parents dedicate themselves, as well as their child, to God. Dedication is a wonderful step for parents, children, and the church family.

Adulting isn't always easy, either.

Weddings

At the head of the family is the institution of marriage. We believe that marriage is best experienced within the context of the Church as established by God. If you are planning a wedding and would like to get more information  just contact us.

Funerals

Funerals are a time when families most intensely feel the need for spiritual guidance. We see them as an opportunity to serve and love. It's a time when families need support and love, and it's our job to be there when you need us. If you are interested in more information regarding funeral officiants, participants, planning, or facilities, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Counseling & Wellness

While our primary concern is your spiritual health, we also know that emotional and physical well-being is vital. We offer pastoral counseling through our pastoral staff as well as referrals to professional Christ-centered counselors in our area. We also believe in the importance of physical wellness and will help you connect with nutrition and fitness experts if you need help in those areas. Let us know how we can help.

Financial Peace

Finances are a struggle for many people. Perhaps you are buried in credit card debt, or maybe you are simply struggling to budget and save. We believe that finances are important and we want to do what we can to help families in our community. As needed we offer financial counseling. If you're interested in the Financial Peace University course offering, contact us.

Support Groups

There are many things in life that bring us down, and sometimes it's impossible to do it alone. We offer support and help to those who are struggling with divorce, drug abuse, alcoholism, and fostering. Contact us today to take the next step.

Mentoring

We believe that everyone should have a mentor, so we are always strategically pairing up mentoring relationships. In some cases, these are among people within our church, but we also provide mentoring relationships with our local jail through the county jail ministry as well as with teenagers and kids through the big brother, big sister program. if you would like to be a mentor or find a mentor, let us know your need.
