Called "Journeys Community," the program offers an opportunity for discussion, fellowship and spiritual experience. Live and recorded popular music, movie clips, photographs and art, spiritual readings and meditations are focused on a theme each week.

Themes include "The Stranger at the Door Is God," "Forgiveness," "The Journey of Life," "Stress and Time," "Faith and Fear," "Do the Right Thing" and "Tolerance." Transformation is an overall theme of the service.

Next week's theme is, "How Do You Experience God in Your Life?"
