Journey Groups

Journey Groups at SUMC are an opportunity to journey towards deeper relationship with a small group of friends. By meeting regularly and sharing about the ups and downs of our everyday lives, we can find support, encouragement and accountability with one another. Through discussion of where we see God at work in the world we help one another grow in our faith and in our love of God.

Who

Anyone who wants to experience new friendships and grow in their relationships with Christ and one another. Singles, couples, families - all life stages welcome.


What

A group of 8-10 adults who meet regularly and follow the Journey Group discussion format:

  • What was a high moment of your week?
  • What was a low moment of your week?
  • Where have you experienced God?
  • Share in conversation about a Scripture or prompt provided by the church.

Where

Groups may meet wherever they determine is best for the group - at homes, a restaurant or neutral site, the church, etc.
Groups who need childcare can meet at the church on Tuesday or Wednesday evenings and childcare can be provided.

When

Groups determine the best time for them to meet - morning, afternoon, evening. Groups also determine their own schedule for meeting - weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, etc.

How

Participate in a Journey Group by:

  • Gathering your own group of 8-10 friends and neighbors for the purpose of intentional sharing using the Journey Group format. Email Nancy Allen to inform her of your group and the church will support and resource you.
