ARE YOU CONNECTED?

We know how important it is to be a part of what is happening here at Journey Church during our weekend services. But, we also know that Sunday services do not always provide enough time and availability to build meaningful new friendships and make new connections with others in the church. It takes time to make lifelong friends. That is why we have Connect Groups.

Connect Groups offer a wide variety of times, places, and topics to help you gather together with others from Journey and build community. These groups may include everything from a traditional Bible or book study, to a shared interest group like fishing, basketball, or sewing. There are also Connect Groups formed around serving and outreach. If you can think of a reason to get together with others from Journey then there is a chance that a Connect Group like that exists.

Do YOU want to lead a Connect Group?

Maybe you have an idea and want to start your own Connect Group. We encourage it! Simply fill out a new group application and, once approved, attend the next new group leader orientation.

REAL LIFE GROUPS

Connect Groups at Journey Church have their foundation in Journey Real Life Groups. For years Journey Church has offered an opportunity to connect with others mid-week, throughout the month with the purpose of growing together in God, both in knowledge AND in practice.

Real Life Groups have had a strong emphasis on the person and the power of the Holy Spirit. A common feature of Real Life Groups has always been group prayer, and discussion about what God has been saying and how to hear His voice. Real Life Groups move each member along the path of spiritual development and emphasize the understanding and function of the gifts of the Spirit.

Real Life Groups have not gone away. They are now a type of Connect Group. Many Connect Groups still pursue the purpose of Real Life Groups by providing a healthy place to learn about the Holy Spirit and grow in relationship with Him.
