DON’T DO LIFE ALONE

They are your key to developing healthy relationships with those who share your interests, or people who are dealing with similar life issues.

Groups are an opportunity to reach out to others, while growing in your walk with God.
Groups meet in homes, businesses, restaurants, or other locations throughout the city. These groups change at different times during the year, so you have the opportunity to explore different groups and you can join a group at any time. You’ll never fully experience all Journey’s Crossing has to offer until you connect in a Group!

Let us help you find a group.

SMALL GROUPS

Small groups are weekly gatherings of about 5-15 people that meet in homes, coffeeshops, restaurants, and the great outdoors.

They exist to provide a place where you can make friends, follow Jesus, and make a difference.
We have groups that study the Bible, others that play sports, some built around serving the community, while still others gather around the dinner table. Wherever you are in life and in your spiritual journey, we have a group for you.

HOW TO JOIN A GROUP

Questions About Groups

Is Childcare Provided?
Not all Groups offer childcare, but there are options available. Some Group members share the responsibility of watching the kids, split the cost for a sitter, or make other arrangements. Let us know if you would like to join a Group with a childcare option.
What will my Group do?
It depends on the kind of Group you choose. Some Groups serve on the same team at church. Other Groups study the Bible together. And some get together to enjoy a shared interest, such as basketball, Jeeps, or video games. Find all the Group options here.
How long is the Commitment to the Group?
Our groups usually run for three months (as we know that interests change along with schedules). While we encourage you to commit to the three-month time-frame in order to give relationships a chance to grow, feel free to visit as many as you’d like until you find one that fits you.
Where do Groups Meet?
Groups meet in homes, restaurants, or coffee shops. Some Groups meet to ride bikes or go for a hike. We can help you find a Group near you and based on an activity you’re interested in.
How often do Groups meet?
That is entirely up to the group leader. Some groups meet once a week, others meet every other week, and some are just once a month! The leader will make all group members aware of the schedule (and the schedule will also be posted in the /groups booklet).

Lead A Group

You know as much as anybody that it’s important to be connected. That’s one reason you’re part of Journey’s Crossing.

We know it’s hard to connect with others and build lasting friendships. We know that even defining community is tough because being in community is more than showing up for Bible study. It’s also sharing food, laughing till it hurts, and doing what you love to do with your favorite people.

What if you could help more people find and enjoy that kind of laughing, caring, and growing community. You can. Here’s how:

Christian Essentials Tuesday Evening Biblical Study Germantown-Darnestown Journey's Crossing
Christian Essentials
Leader: William Mueller

What are some ways you can live out your faith in the world that we live in? Are there essentials that can help you do that? In our group we will spend some time looking at essentials that will help us navigate the Christian Life.

Join us on Tuesday nights at 7:00 pm at Journey's Crossing for a time of input and interaction.

Leader: Bill Mueller

What would you say is essential to the Christian life? Is it adherence to religious activities you think are important to God like attending church services, volunteering, participating in rituals like baptism or communion, or following a long list of "thou shall nots"? The Apostle John would argue that these things are merely excess activities—they're not the true essence of Christian living.

So then, what is the essence of Christianity? It includes knowing undoubtedly that you're in an intimate relationship with God, being capable of loving the unlovable, experiencing unspeakable joy in all circumstances, being available to God working through you.

Once we peel away all the excess activities we tend to cling to, we can experiencethe intimacy, assurance, joy, and fulfillment that comes with Christian living the way God intended.

That's what we do in this group, using a program of study that has proven effective in helping people navigate separation and divorce. Men and women are invited.

Participate in a 4-week experience to help you find your next steps here at Journey's Crossing.

If you are new at Journey's Crossing or you'd like more information, connection, or you are are interested in membership at JC, please attend our NEXT interactive experience offered on Sundays at 11:30am in Room 105.

Step 1: Connect (1st weekend of every month),
Step 2: Community (2nd weekend of every month)
Step 3: Change Makers (3rd weekend of every month)
Step 4: Compassion (4th weekend of every month)

Most people like to start with Step 1, but you are welcome to start at any point. Know that there is no NEXT experience on the 5th weekend for any month that has a 5th weekend. NEXT meets in the Conference Room 105, located down the hallway to the left when you enter the building.

Sign up at this link: https://journeyscrossing.ccbchurch.com/goto/forms/406/responses/new

Please note:

1. Attendance: NEXT has been designed in a way that it makes it easy for you to complete all 4 steps. If you find you are unable to attend class during your regular time you may come back the following month for the class you missed.

2. Regarding children 5th grade and under: The Next experience is an environment for adults and teens only. Please use our children's programs for a fun and educational experience geared specifically for them as well as our Nursery. This will help preserve the adult content of some of our table discussions.

3. Dogs/pets. To respect people with pet allergies and eliminate distractions, no animals are permitted at Next other than your own service animal (Wearing proper identification/fully trained).

Don't anticipate a stale class, taking notes all the time. These sessions will be filled with laughs, new friends, and training on how to follow Jesus in the 21st century. We are looking forward to getting to know you!
