What Say You?

As we work to continually improve, what would you be interested in reading here? 

How can we support your Journey?

Thank You!!!

This congregation has come together so many times over the years. It's one of the reasons that I love it so much!

I want to say a huge thanks to John Lower, Matt Rynearson, Khyle Burnham, and Brian Salta for all of your help this past month. You all are awesome!

To Trudy Fuller and Deb Carpenter ... thanks for helping bring us into worship via your musical gifts.

To Phyllis, Carol, Betty, and Joy for keeping us all on track.

To all of our Journey family for the smiles and laughs and support.  

And, finally, to all of our guest pastors in July. You all blessed us so much with your time and your messages. We will forever be thankful to the Desert Southwest Conference for sending you our way.

God IS good ....

We are the people of the United Methodist Church.

Notes from the Road is one of the ways that we at Journey stay connected. Connections and community are keys to a vital church ... and are part of what keep us bound together in the service of Christ.

So, welcome to you as we journey together on the road where we as a spirit-filled, forward-leaning community of believers seek to become the hands and feet of Jesus.
News and Notes
Community Focus!

F.O.R. Maricopa's Interfaith Food Drive netted 20,000 pounds of food this summer! 

Unfortunately, we know that it's only a matter of time before more is needed. So, we've designated August as peanut butter month!

Peanut butter is a great (and always needed) food bank staple. Bring in those jars and we'll get them to those in need. 

If a monetary donation is easier for you, we can do that as well. Just mark the envelope/check as for the food bank. 

Thank you, Journey!

Appointment with Journey

Journey Leadership first met Terry and Ivanka this spring when it was announced that Terry would be appointed Journey's pastor for this appointment cycle. It was a fabulous first meeting and, since then, we've been anxiously awaiting their arrival in Maricopa.

Terry is originally from the New England area; born in Maine and grew up in Andover, Massachusetts.

After attending college and law school in upstate New York, and working in the legal field for some time,Terry felt the calling to go into full-time ministry. 

He attended Fuller Seminary in Pasadena, California and graduated with a M.Div. in 2014. Since then, Terry has served as a youth and associate pastor in central California and Washington state.

Terry wishes to continue to serve the Lord in pastoral ministry, and he strongly believes God is providing an opportunity to serve in the United Methodist church. 

Terry and  Ivanka are looking forward to being a part of Journey UMC, in genuine love, fellowship, and worship.
From the Blog...

Is this fall? Some of it seems like fall. I think of this time of year as the time of "moving on". 


Every year at this time, our kids are scrambling to get the last of the school supplies they will need, the latest in fashion and foot wear or the new uniforms they will need for [...]
