NEW SERIES BEGINS SUNDAY!
DEVELOPING EMOTIONALLY HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS
Are you in an emotionally unhealthy relationship?
Short answer? Yes.
All of us are emotionally unhealthy in some way, including you and me. Guess that pretty much means all relationships have a degree of unhealthiness to them.
More important question. Are you working on yourself and those relationships to become more healthy?
That’s where our new series called The Office: Emotionally Healthy Relationships comes in – we want you and those who are in relationships with you to have the tools and encouragement you need to make your relationships more and more emotionally healthy. And we want to have some fun while we are at it!
The Office is the most popular streaming show out there – it’s loved by teens, adults, and everyone in between, and it is the most-watched show through the pandemic across all age groups! Somehow, everyone sees someone they know or recognizes some of their quirks in this emotionally unhealthy paper company in Scranton, Pennsylvania called Dunder-Mifflin.
Whether you are a fan of Jim and Pam, Dwight, Micheal, or one of the other hilarious characters, there are plenty of lessons to learn about how to and how not to have an emotionally healthy relationship.
I hope you’ll join us each week at Journey’s Crossing either in person or online to not only laugh but, even more importantly, learn why emotionally healthy relationships are not just a good thing but are also a God-thing. Healthy relationships with each other should be the natural by-product of a healthy relationship with God.
I don’t know if God is a fan of “The Office” or not, but I do know He wants you and me to be more emotionally healthy and for that to improve how we get along with each other. Jesus often made up fictional stories to communicate God’s truth, and I think He can use the crazy lives of Dwight, Jim, Angela, Stanley, Kevin, and Oscar (and all the others!) to learn and apply God’s relationship principles from the Bible too.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Yeah, we know how important a good-tasting cup of java is. Before and after each worship experience, we serve high-quality, environmentally-friendly coffees, and beverages that are both free and taste good! And get this – you are welcome to bring them with you into the worship experience! So, come a little early and grab a beverage before the fun begins.
Don’t be surprised if you see clips from your favorite movies or television shows, hear a personal story from a person just like you. You’ll always find something unexpected like crowd interaction, comedy, clever object lessons or creative lighting, effects and media because we believe church should be fun to attend and be engaging!
We think you deserve content that is interesting and engaging. In fact, it should be so practical that you could put it to use even before you leave the building. We learn about things like relationships, work, and careers, finances, power over addictions, forgiveness, life change through Jesus. And yes…even sex! Every week our “talks” are creative, down to earth, funny and memorable and they’ll make a real difference in your life.
KIDS AND TEENS
Your kids and teenagers will also discover stuff that applies to their everyday lives. Creative videos, music they love and they’ll meet real people who care and want to help them find their way through life with God and one another. And there’s even a safe & caring nursery for the littlest ones because we want you to be able to enjoy the morning distraction free and we want them to learn the church can be fun for them as well!
MUSIC YOU’LL ENJOY
Our live band plays a mix of high-energy pop, rock, r&b, hip-hop & gospel as well as reflective tunes that you’ll want to hum all week long. Here’s the best part – our bands sound like music that was written for today! And get this – many weeks they even cover a tune you just heard on the radio by one of your favorite artists! That’s because good music matters and helps to get you thinking about the topic of the day.
COME AS YOU ARE
We don’t have a dress code. We don’t speak in holy jargon that only Christians understand. We don’t expect anyone to be perfect. We’re just ordinary people just like you, warts and all. Authenticity is a big deal to us – it’s exhausting to keep trying to pretend we’ve always got our act together when we don’t. So come and be yourself – no matter what you look like or where you’re from you’ll find other fellow-strugglers just like you.
Casual. Contemporary. Family-friendly. Creative. Relevant. Life-changing.
