FAQ

What To Expect?

Is there a dress code?

No. You will find that the Journey is made up of a very diverse group of people. People wear what they are comfortable in – which means that most people dress casually.

Can we bring our kids Sunday mornings?

Your whole family is welcome Sunday mornings, including during our worship gathering!  We love kids and all of our kid’s and youth programs are designed to meet the unique age-appropriate learning styles of your children and give them an opportunity to interact with others their age.

We have nursery available for birth to 2 years old, and other classes for children ages 2 years old – 5th grade.

Check out our Kid’s and Youth Ministry pages for details on this and other opportunities.

What is the Sunday Worship Gathering like?

We are a multi-generational church and our worship reflects it. Many of the songs we sing are newer while others have been sung for generations. You can sing along if you know the songs or just listen if they are new to you. You will find a mix of vocalists and instruments among those leading worship each Sunday including drums, keyboards, acoustic guitars, electric guitars, and piano. Lyrics are projected onto two screens on either side of the main stage. We sing a few songs together, then a message is given by one of our pastors. Communion is celebrated the first Sunday of each month.

What are the messages like?

We value transformed lives at Journey Church. The teaching and preaching that takes place is meant to encourage transformation. Messages during the worship gathering are directly based on the Bible and are meant to help explain the meaning of the selected passage and apply that meaning to your life. We are committed to helping you take the next step in your relationship with Jesus Christ.

Journey Church is located in Federal Way, WA just a little over 1 mile west of I-5 on 320th St. Our address is: 701 S 320th St, Federal Way, WA  98003.

What kind of "baptist" are you?

There are lots of different kinds of baptist churches. We are part of a movement of 1,400 Converge churches across the US. Ninety-five Converge churches make up ConvergeNW in the Pacific Northwest. Historically, we began as Swedish Baptist churches. While most of our churches are english-speaking congregations today there are also Haitian, Hispanic, and Filipino Converge churches. We are connected to Bethel University in St Paul, MN and support missionaries around the world.
