Journey the Church's community groups focus on discussing the sermon from the past Sunday. The goal of these groups is to build community outside, live life together, learn about the Bible, and reflect on Sunday's sermon as a group.

Groups exist to promote spiritual maturity and personal growth through meaningful Christian relationships and study of God’s Word (Romans 8:29 & Hebrews 10:24-25). We’ll do this by focusing on four primary activities:
Each week we will take time to share what is happening in our lives. At first this sharing will include sharing questions. But after the first few weeks, it will become more informal and personal as we feel more comfortable as our bonds grow closer.
Each week we will study a section from God’s Word that relates to the previous weekend’s sermon and/or personal growth topic from the image in the sermon. Our goal is to live our “Christian walk” as an everyday thing.
Each week we will learn how to take care of one another as Christ commanded us to do so (John 15:9-13). This can be done is a few ways: prayer, encouragement, listening, meeting for coffee, challenging one another and being accountable.
Spiritual Growth is not only gained by wisdom and care support, but also through service to others. The role each of us fills is important to the health of the Church and for us to be the hands and feet in the community (Ephesians 4:11-16).
