small groups

Journey's Small Groups are designed to bring people closer to God and closer to one another as we “do life together.”


Each group lasts approximately thirteen weeks and meet at various times and locations. 

We encourage everyone to find community in at least one!


The vast majority of small groups occur during the winter and spring months.  

A few still meet in the summer months.
