What is The Upper Room?
The Upper Room...
In the New Testament, Jesus’ disciples brought their concern, worry and anxiety to the upper room in Jerusalem where they could be refreshed through fellowship, worship, prayer and acts of service. It was here where Jesus’ words, “Do not let your hearts be troubled” (John 14:1) gave meaning to the disciple’s lives.
Cenacle, from Latin cēnāculum or "dining room", is a derivative of the Latin word cēnō, which means "I dine". According to traditional texts, this is where the apostles stayed when they were in Jerusalem and included events such as the Last Supper (Luke 22:7-38) and Jesus washing his disciples’ feet (John 13:1–17).
Like Jesus and His disciples, Life Journey is a church where troubled lives are changed and refreshed through these same Biblical actions of fellowship, worship, prayer, and acts of service.
