journey Groups

We believe lasting life change happens best in the context of meaningful relationships. That's why we offer Journey Groups. Joining a Journey Group provides opportunities to connect, tackle questions, discuss personal challenges, study the Bible, pray, and receive support in a way that isn't possible on Sunday mornings. 


Journey Group sessions typically begin four times a year: fall, winter, spring, and summer. We offer groups for all ages, interests and commitment levels. Some groups are one-time events while others meet weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly. Our system is designed to provide clear on-ramps and off-ramps. It is easy to try a group and, if it's not a good fit, you can try a different group the following session without feeling guilty.
