It's been seven years that we have faithfully served our beautiful community of Bayonne! Our vision is threefold: 1) The Spiritual Health of our community 2) The Mental Health of our community and 3) The Social Well Being of our community. In the last seven years, we have met goals one and two by planting Journey Community Church and opening Journey Counseling Center. The church meets the spiritual needs of our community and the counseling center has seen hundreds of individuals, families, and couples who were seeking affordable professional mental health services.
It's been amazing but we are not done yet As a small church, we are not able to purchase our own building. For the past seven years, we have been renting at locations that require us to setup and breakdown every week, had limited use of the rental space, and have kept our children's ministry in the hallways. Over the years we have tried to find a location that would be exclusive, with no limitation of use, and with adequate space for our growing children's ministry.
God has answered our prayers! On January 1, 2021, we will move into our new location. We are super excited because this location has met all of our existing needs! We have an auditorium that fits 250 people and a community room that will be used for our children's ministry. This community room will enable us to begin our third goal by opening up the Journey Community Center. Here we will continue to serve the city of Bayonne by offering social service programs that are much needed.
The location comes empty and it's in need of renovations! We need your help to raise $20,000! This money will be used to renovate and properly furnish our church. We need to buy chairs, paint, install new flooring, purchase signage, and upgrade our sound equipment. It is our hope that you would consider donating to our journey as we faithfully continue to lovingly serve our community with the full gospel of Jesus Christ.
