Welcome to journey Church small groups!

Small Group involvement is one of our main strategies to connect with others, grow in our maturity and knowledge, and on a much smaller scale from Sundays become a church where people belong. While some of the groups presented are for more seasoned Christ-followers, most are designed for both old and new to faith, and also to those who are exploring faith.

People have asked, “What exactly is a small group?” Simply put, it’s a small group of people (anywhere from 5-20 people) who connect every week (based on a variety of convenience factors) as a part of Journey Church. Each group is designed to go for a round of 8-10 weeks (with a few going 12 weeks), with breaks designed to correspond to holidays or natural breaks. As a note, while a group is meeting, it is understandable and natural when group members have to miss a week for another obligation, but the idea is to be as consistent as possible to grow relationally and spiritually. At the end of a group’s run, members are welcomed to return to their group in the next round or find another one.

If you consider Journey your church home, we strongly encourage you to find a group suitable for you and get connected this round. This new round of groups begins the week of September 29th-October 5th (with a few noted exceptions). See below a list of the different groups with times, locations, and brief descriptions.

      • Ongoing group meets Wednesdays at 6:00PM

      • Location: Journey Church, Teen Center, 2nd floor

    Description: At Journey, we believe students have so much potential and are worth investing in.

    That's where Wired, our 6th-12 grade ministry, comes in. We are passionate about investing in our students because so many teens who leave the church after high school do so because they have been under-challenged.  

    Wired strives to create environments that are not only fun and appealing but challenge students to take steps in their faith journeys. These steps include serving on (and even leading) ministry teams; studying the Bible; mentoring; international mission trips; and local outreach programs.


YOUNG ADULT GROUP: Roots Ministries

  • Led by STEPHANIE NEAL

    Description: Roots is a group for young adults. This ministry is meant to help you develop relationships and grow your faith. If you are 18-30 years old, Roots is for you - you need to come check us out on a Saturday night, and bring a friend!

    The Bible tells us to let your roots grow down into Him, and let your lives be built on Him (Colossians 2:7).  So our aim is to help every young adult do just that - grow deeper - grow roots. We'll hang out together and grow deeper as we learn how live for God in the normal day-to-day.  We'll regularly talk about the events of the day and what the Bible has to say about those things. 

    And we'll grow deeper - in friendships. You'll connect with good friends who are going through some of the same challenges that you are.  This group is designed to provide ongoing opportunities to build some great relationships. 


Defending Your Faith

  • LED BY Loren Bickford

      • Location: Journey Church, Adult Living Room (next to cafe)

    Description: Join Loren Bickford in an introductory course on the defense of the Christian faith and be ready to give an answer to anyone who asks you why you believe what you believe. In this course, we will engage in some relevant topics and look at what the Bible says, and we will have many times for questions and answers so you can learn what does the Bible say?

    Some of the topics covered will be:

  • Apologetics - the defense of the faith

  • Is there evidence for the existence of God?

  • Can we trust the Bible?

  • How do we know Jesus was who He said He was?

  • Why Jesus is above other prophets?
