What is a Life_Group?
A Life_Group is a small group of couples or individuals from the same station in life that meet in homes during the week to belong in healthy relationships with others and to become more like Christ.
Why should I join a Life_Group?
We believe that you can only move so far on your spiritually journey without others. Being in a group will help you develop lasting friendships that will push you further faster on your spiritual journey. Also, groups are just a great place to make friends and realize you are not alone in whatever you are going through. Groups celebrate successes and help each other through the tough times.
Do I have to be a member of Journey Church to join a Small Group?
No way. Groups are for anyone and everyone at Journey.
What happens at Life_Group?
You show up and eat some snacks and hang out for about 20 minutes. After that we move to our Message Based Curriculum time for about 40 minutes. That means that we talk about the message from the previous weekend in a creative way. It allows everyone to have the opportunity to ask questions about things they didn’t understand. Also, the discussion is highly practical to your life. Notice we said discussion. Our leaders facilitate conversation, they do not preach! It isn’t a bunch of theological jargon that only a few can understand. It is for everyone at every point in their journey. Then the groups move into a time of prayer! Then they hang out for a little while and go home.
Where do Life_Groups meet?
They meet all over our area in host homes. You can usually find a group within 10-15 minutes of your house.
Is there childcare available?
It depends on the group. Some groups have childcare. The group finds its own place to house the children. A childcare worker or two usually take care of the little ones during the group time.
What if I don’t like the first group I try?
Try another one! We understand that every person is not going to click the first night, so we ask that you hang in your group for at least 5 weeks. Usually after 5 weeks of consistently attending groups will gel, but by all means if you want to try a new group just let us know. If you would like to try a different group, please e-mail us and let us know (email@example.com , or firstname.lastname@example.org)
Can I start my own group?
We are always looking for new leaders and hosts. We would love to get your information and talk with you about starting a group at some point. We have strategic times in the year when we launch groups so just fill out our leader application and we will contact you. Please contact us at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in leading a group.
How do I get into a group?
You can sign up for a Life_Group by emailing us at email@example.com, or firstname.lastname@example.org and we will contact you about our next Group Launch. Another way is just to ask a friend if you can go with them to their group. You are welcome at anytime to any of our groups.
