Stacked
Stones

Telling our stories of what God has done

In the Old Testament the Israelites often stacked stones to honor and remember the place where God showed up. It was a tangible and visible presence of holy ground where God’s presence had been. Today, God can be present in every aspect of our lives because of Jesus’s death and resurrection. But we – like the Israelites – still need to create ways of remembering what God has done.

This page is about stacking stones in remembrance of what God has done in the life and people of Journey Church. It is meant to be a tangible reminder that God is moving in mighty ways. We invite you to come back here often to remember and praise God for all he is doing.
