Journey Groups

What are Community Groups?

Community groups are groups of 10-15 people in similar life stages who gather for community and Bible study. We have groups for men, women, and college students.

What are Missional Communities?

Missional Community groups are a key aspect of our church community. Groups of about 15 people (plus kids) from a general geography of mixed genders and ages meet weekly in homes. If you can’t find an open group, please let us know!

What are DNA Groups?

Groups of 2-4 people of the same gender meet weekly for Bible study and accountability. What does DNA stand for? Devotion & Accountability: Devotion to God’s Word by SOAPing through Scripture. Biblical accountability to one another, spurring each other towards Christ.

How do I connect into a DNA group?

Connect into a DNA group by simply gathering with 2-4 other friends of the same gender weekly to SOAP through God’s Word and pray for each other!

Why only 2-4 people of the same gender?

DNA groups are intended to be a safe place for honest vulnerability, so keeping groups small helps everyone feel free to open up!

Where do DNA groups meet?

Where you meet is completely up to your group. Groups can meet in homes, over coffee, or over a meal. Meeting in a public place may be a great opportunity to be on display for a watching world, but groups must be careful not to allow their environment to hinder the quality of the time.

How long do DNA groups meet?

Typically groups meet for one hour, spending 30 minutes in devotion reading Scripture, 20 minutes in accountability, and 10 minutes in prayer.

Can our DNA group choose to do a Bible study or read a book together?

We encourage groups that are interested in doing a Bible study or book study together to go for it but keep it separate from your Scripture study time at your DNA meeting. The best way to do a book/Bible study is to read it separately throughout the week and briefly discuss it together at your DNA meeting. But we advocate direct study of the Bible be the focus of your time spent together.
