No running for cover this time…

August 9th, 2016 by WebPastor


Unlike last year… we didn’t close our outdoor service with a mad dash to cars in the rain! It was a gorgeous day to enjoy some fellowship, worship, teaching, fun, and dream a little about what God is going do with that beautiful property He has provided us with. I love being out there with my forever family and getting a glimpse of what God has in store. There’s a wave coming! Let’s ride it together!

Outdoor Service at JNC Property THIS Sunday, Aug 7 @ 10:30

August 1st, 2016 by WebPastor

(Click the picture above to see a bigger view of it)

Weather permitting, we’re going outside again this Sunday, August 7. This time it’s at our church property on the North end of town. VBS will take place on the church property from Sunday through Wednesday (5:30-8:30 pm) and since we’ll be all set up, we’ll piggyback on that and have an outdoor service.

So bring a lawn chair or blanket and join us. We’ll worship together, enjoy the outdoors and our property together, and hear a little of what’s on the roadmap for Journey North Church.

That’s ONE service, all together, at 10:30 am. And in case of bad weather, we’ll go back to 2 services (9 & 10:30) at 840 Main Street So.

Instructions for THIS Sunday’s Baptism Service

July 25th, 2016 by WebPastor


Remember this is all weather permitting… in case of bad weather, we’re back to 2 services… 9 & 10:30 at 840 Main Street South.

If you’re getting baptized this Sunday, here’s a little something by way of instructions… Pretty simple… the changing rooms will be open. If you wear something modest for the baptism and have a towel and dry clothes to change back into, you’ll be good to go!.

After the baptisms on Sunday (if the weather cooperates) the celebration will continue with a potluck lunch. So please bring a dish to share if you can. And for the comics reading this… obviously not just a dish… the dish should have some sort of food or dessert on it 🙂

So bring a dish to share and your lawn chair. We’ll supply the paper products and something to drink. If you forget, come anyway. There is always plenty of food and Journey North Church has some fantastic cooks!!

I’m back and can’t wait to see you all there!!

Journey North Church Baptism

June 10th, 2016 by WebPastor


At Journey North Church we believe that Christ followers should be baptized the same way Jesus was. We are commanded in the Great Commission to go and make disciples… baptizing them. We take that seriously. We don’t believe that baptism saves you. People are saved by grace through faith, not of any works (Ephesians 2:8-9), based solely on what Jesus did by coming, living, dying on the cross for our sins, and rising again for us. But baptism demonstrates that relationship in an outward way. It also demonstrates our identification with and relationship to our church family.

Weather permitting, Journey North Church is having a baptism service at the Pine City Beach THIS Sunday, July 31, at 10:30. If you have made a commitment to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and want to follow Him in believer’s baptism, please let us know… put it on a communication card, call us, email us, message us on Facebook, DM us on Twitter… you can even come talk to us 🙂 Just let us know so we can answer questions you may have and give you some instructions for that day. On that day, after a time of worship through music and sharing from God’s Word, we will introduce those desiring to be baptized. We will, just like Jesus did, go down into the water, be baptized by immersion as a picture of Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection, and come up out of the water and celebrate together. It’s always a very special celebration. Join us!

The baptism will be followed by a potluck lunch. Bring a dish to share if you can! In the event the weather is bad and we have to cancel, we will have our regular 2 services at 9 and 10:30 at 840 Main Street South.

Here’s a map to the Pine City Beach if you need it:

Memorial Day

May 30th, 2016 by WebPastor


Today is the day we in the United States remember our fallen heroes. We remember those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice defending our freedom. As you celebrate today and spend time with family and friends (or whatever you may be doing today), please don’t forget to stop and take the time to remember and honor those who have given their lives in defense of our freedom.

“There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”
John 15:13 (NLT)

ATTENTION… Both CLASS 101 and 201 scheduled for this Sunday have been postponed due to scheduling issues. Information on the next CLASSes will be available later. Again… NO CLASSes this Sunday, May 22. Enjoy the (hopefully) beautiful day!


We have scheduled the next CLASS 101 along with a CLASS 201 (for those who have completed CLASS 101, made the commitment, and become members). Both are on Sunday, May 22, 1-5 pm. Here’s a brief rundown:


Discovering Life at Journey North Church
This class is the basic introduction to our church family. Since we have people from many different backgrounds with a variety of different church experiences, this class was designed to clearly explain who and what our church is all about. It is required for people who desire to become a member, but it’s also a great way to have most of your questions answered about Journey North Church. And on the off chance we don’t cover your question, we’ll do our best to get the answer for you!


Discovering Spiritual Maturity
This CLASS is for those who have already taken CLASS 101, made the commitment (turned in your written testimony, signed Statement of Faith and Membership Covenant, and met with the Elders), and have become members. The main reason is because it’s all about commitment. To take this next step of commitment, you need to have made the first step of commitment. One step at a time! It focuses on the basic habits every Christian needs to grow to spiritual maturity. We’re here to help people find True North on this journey called life… and to help each other after we have found True North to experience life together and engage, and to be heading towards spiritual maturity. If you’ve completed the first step (see beginning of paragraph) and you’re ready to take the next step, this is the class for you.

Both CLASSes are four hour classes and we provide sufficient breaks and snacks to keep you going!

If you’re planning on attending, please sign up on Sunday or email us so that we have an accurate number for materials, seating and snacks! Remember that there is no childcare provided so if that’s a need you have, we’re asking you to make arrangements with a sitter or another family or something. And maybe you’re called to help by volunteering to sit for the kids of someone God lays on your heart (at your home or theirs).

I hope to see you there. Please be praying about this… I really believe it’s a huge step in the life of the Journey North Church family. You can sign up at the Welcome Desk.

2 groups off…

April 15th, 2016 by WebPastor


overdrive (8-12th grade) and FUEL (5-7th grade) both left today for the weekend. Different kids (many)… different leaders (many)… different vehicles (many)… different directions (two)… but one thing will happen for both groups… God will show up and work in a mighty way in their lives! Be praying for these groups and leaders this weekend.
