Things Are Different Right Now…
COVID has changed how we participate in many aspects of life… worship gatherings included. Currently we are required by State emergency orders to limit total occupancy, wear masks, provide additional sanitation needs, maintain social distancing and a number of other health and safety measures. While how we do worship has changed, God has not.
We are making adjustments each and every week to make worshipping together as personal as possible while maintaining the standard our health officials request. As we transition into the Fall, we are actively planning to resume multiple services and offer kids programming. As well, we are moving from a pre-recorded teaching format, to a complete live stream service for those joining us online.
What To Expect
Thanks for checking out Journey Christian Church in Fall River, MA! Our worship service starts at 9:30 on Sunday and usually lasts right around 50-minutes. There’s always fresh hot coffee available starting 20 minutes before the service, programs for kids, and opportunity to connect with others.
First, expect a warm and friendly greeting — a handshake or a hug, a friendly face to answer any questions you have and help make sure you feel comfortable while worshipping with us. Our team will help you find the nursery, kids space, or bathrooms if you are new!
Second, you’ll encounter a live band that leads us in worship to God. Our music is modern and different from the traditional organ and choir that many would expect to see in a New England church. You’ll notice some people raising their hands as an expression of worship toward God.
And finally, you can expect a relevant Bible based teaching that challenges your mind and heart with God’s truth. It’s important that we not only learn what’s in the Bible, but also why it’s in there and what to do with it. The Bible is all about Jesus and the freedom and life transformation He offers us through salvation from our sins. You’ll never hear a message that doesn’t point back to Jesus and challenge you to be more like Him.
Our church is fairly contemporary. Dress in a way that you feel comfortable and that allows you to connect with God. Some wear jeans and a t-shirt while others may wear a sport coat and a tie. It’s up to you! Your attire doesn’t determine your holiness.
At Journey, ministry to the whole family is a vital part of our mission. We have specialized kids programming from infancy to elementary available that teaches them about God and the Bible in a way that’s relevant to them while the adult teaching occurs. We also have a staffed nursery available to babies and toddlers where little ones will encounter God through various planned activities each week. 10 minutes before service your kids can head into their classes for their own, specially tailored worship set and interactive Bible teaching while you worship and engage in the teaching in the main auditorium.
Here’s some information to help you get started and understand a little bit more about who we are.
There has never been a person in history who has made the kind of impact as Jesus Christ. We strive to know the Biblical Jesus and follow His teachings, as it is only through Him that man can be restored to God. How can we know Him?
The Bible is a big book about a big God who simply cannot be defined. Theology is man’s attempt to know God – which we will never fully accomplish in the flesh. That being said, here’s what we believe based on our understanding of scripture and our forefathers of faith.
Our worship service starts at 9:30 on Sunday and usually ends just before noon. We are located in the Tower Mill at 657 Quarry St, Fall River, MA 02723. When you pull in, take a quick ride on the elevator in the lobby of the central entrance and our space is adjacent to the main elevator on the second floor.
