Journey Students is a place for your child to belong.
Our mission is to partner with your family to help your children love God more today than they did yesterday, be discipled in the love and truth of Jesus, and to trust Jesus with their today, tomorrow, and eternity.
At Journey Students, we are committed to this happening in a fun and safe environment that your child will want to return to every week.
Life can be busy and difficult, and we believe that no one should do life alone, including middle and high school students. We are passionate about walking alongside your family and believe that everyone needs a safe place to belong where they can discover more about the hope that Jesus offers.
ABOUT COMMUNITY GROUPS
While we do gather on Sunday for corporate worship, one of the primary ways we connect and “do life” together is through our Community Groups. As His church, our mission is to grow in personal devotion to Christ, deepen in gospel community and declare the work of Jesus Christ to the world around us. Community Groups at The Journey are about discipleship.
WHERE AND WHEN DO COMMUNITY GROUPS MEET?
Our groups meet Sunday through Friday nights in homes throughout the Metro East area (Visit the Welcome Center for a geographic listing of Community Groups). Most groups meet weekly and begin meeting the week after Labor Day in September and end in the month of May. While many groups still connect over the summer, our groups adjust their regular meeting schedules in June, July, and August.
WHAT DO COMMUNITY GROUPS DO WHEN THEY MEET?
Each week, our groups participate in fellowship, worship, bible study and prayer. As the group begins, there is usually a time of light food and fellowship. Each week, the Community Group leader sends out lesson based on the passage and sermon from the previous Sunday. The lessons are broken down into three parts. First, the “Enter” part of the lesson stimulates thought that points us to the interaction of the sermon/scripture and the world around us. Second, the “Exploration” part of the lesson allows each person to interact with and investigate the details of the passage. Third, the “Engage” part of lesson contains Christ-centered questions about sin, grace and mission. Community Group also set aside time each week to pray one another and the church.
WHO LEADS THE INDIVIDUAL COMMUNITY GROUPS?
Individual Community Groups are led by members and staff people from the Metro East congregation. Most groups have “co-leaders” which allows for the distribution of weight and gifting within each group. Co-leading also lends itself to multiplication.
