Join a Summer Growth Group Today!


Grow in your faith, study the Bible, meet new people, and have fun in a Growth Group.

(Online and In-Person Groups Available this Summer!)

Groups begin the week of June 14.

What is a Summer Growth Group?

Summer Growth Groups are The Journey's groups of 15-20 people that will meet weekly this summer for 10-12 weeks (June - August) to study the Bible.  

Each Growth Group meets for 60 minutes once a week.  Most groups are meeting online via Zoom but some groups are meeting in person in parks around the city (masks and social distancing required).  

Our Summer 2021 Growth Groups begin in June and last through August,
so it’s just enough time to grow in your faith, learn something new and make new friends without feeling like you’re making a big commitment.

There are over 40 Summer Growth Groups to choose from.  And perfect attendance is NOT required.  
So it’s easy to join, you will grow in your faith and meet some great people!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 

What is a growth group?
Growth Groups are The Journey’s groups of 15 to 20 people that will be meeting mostly ONLINE this Summer via Zoom but there are a few in person groups meeting outside to learn more about the Bible, grow in their faith, and meet some great new friends.


Is there a group that’s right for me?
There are over 40 groups to choose from this Summer.  There are a variety of groups that meet at different times and almost every day of the week,
 so you’ll have the chance to find the group that is right for you.  And you'll have the opportunity to meet others who share your experiences
and are going through similar things as you right now.

Do I need to buy a book or study guide?
Yes, but if you cannot afford the book, email Pastor Keni @ [email protected] and he can work with you.

What happens when I sign up?
When you sign up, the leader of your new Growth Group will contact you and introduce themselves and provide the link for your group's online meeting, the date and time you’ll be starting  and all the other information you’ll need to have a great experience.

When will my group meet?
Our Growth Groups meet once a week, and each meeting is just sixty to ninety minutes long. Groups meet 10-12 times over the semester.
It’s a short-term commitment but the positive impact on your life will be long-term.

What will the people in my group be like?
Growth Groups are made up of people who attend The Journey  every week. There is great diversity in our church - which makes our Growth Groups so much fun!  You'll meet some new people as well as probably reconnect with others you met at a Journey service or event.  
Growth Groups are a safe and fun way to connect with others and meet some wonderful people!
