Journey High meets Sunday evenings at 6 p.m.

The mission of Journey is to love and live like Jesus. Following Jesus is a lifelong journey—hence the name!

At Journey High we love to have fun, play games, and laugh lots, but we also enjoy good discussion as we seek to take our next step with God, whether that be our first step, or our 100th. You’ll feel

welcomed here whether you’ve never been in church before or have been going your whole life.

Journey High (9th-12th grade) meets weekly on Sunday Nights at the church from 6-7:30 p.m. On the first Sunday of the month we gather for dinner together from 5:30-7:30 p.m. We will have real talk about what it means to follow Jesus while giving you tools to navigate this crazy life of High School. Friends are always welcome!

Journey will also have various outings throughout the year, so shoot Kevin your contact info at or 616.780.4141 so he can add you to his contact list and keep you in the loop!
