BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — If Jesus had a car and was driving in Boca, perhaps he would head to Journey Church’s “Gas Buydown” on Saturday to save on gas.
From Journey Church:
After a tremendous response to their “Gas Buy Down” in 2013, The Journey Church of Boca Raton is again offering the community $0.50 off per gallon on gasoline this Saturday, April 12.
The Journey’s “Gas Buy Down” will take place this Saturday, April 12, 11:00am – 1:00pm, at the Valero Gas Station located at 1380 N. Federal Highway in Boca Raton (just north of Glades Road).
The church will buy down the price of gas by $0.50/gallon for as many people as possible during the two hour time frame between 11:00am and 1:00pm, giving drivers the opportunity to take advantage of the lowest gasoline prices in the region.
“After the opportunity to share God’s love in such a practical way last year, we decided to offer another Gas Buy Down this year,” said Nelson Searcy, Lead Pastor of The Journey Church. “Since rising gas prices remain a consistent source of financial strain, this has been a great way to be a blessing to the people of our community.”
Volunteers from the three-year-old church will be on hand to pump gas and give a break to the wallets of members of the community.
The Journey is a new church in Boca Raton, featuring services each Sunday with casual dress, rockin’ music and practical teaching. This community outreach opportunity connects nicely with the Easter season.
The Gas Buy Down is far from the first time The Journey will be serving the community. In its first three years, The Journey has successfully partnered with Boca Helping Hands and 4KIDS of South Florida on outreach projects. Searcy says the church is “always on the lookout for creative ways to make a difference in people’s lives.”
The Journey Church is a casual, contemporary, Christian church that meets each Sunday at 10:30am, at Boca Raton Community High School (just off Glades Road at I-95, exit 45). Since its beginning in February 2011, The Journey has grown to a congregation of several hundred that meet each week.
