FIND A GROUP AND CONNECT
We know how important it is to connect with others. Life is an adventure that is meant to be shared. So much of God’s goodness is discovered and experienced in community with others. If we aren’t plugged in to that partnership with others we are not experiencing the fullness of the goodness of God in our lives.
Real Life Groups are focused on helping you experience Christ-centered friendship as well as an opportunity to give and receive through spiritual gifts with others from Journey. These typically meet in homes around the area and focus on content from J Weekend Services at Journey.
Connect Groups, however, can be focused on a book study, cover a specific topic or they can be based on shared life circumstances and interests.
Look over the current list of Real Life Groups & Connect Groups below and SEND AN EMAIL to the leader of the group for information on their next gathering and to see if they have room in their group.
We want to help if it has been a challenge for you to find a group and connect. Click on the “I WANT TO JOIN A GROUP” link below to let us know and we will help you.
