Spring 2020 Growth Groups
at The Journey

Spring Growth Group Signups begin Sunday, January 5

At The Journey, we believe that life is a team sport – best done together!

Growth Groups are The Journey’s groups of 12-15 people that get together each week in convenient New York City locations to meet new people, learn about the Bible and have fun. It’s a great way to make friends while growing in your faith.

Even though our Fall Growth Groups are winding down – there is good news. Sign-ups for our Spring 2020 Growth Groups begin on Sunday, January 5.

Our Spring Growth Groups will begin meeting the week of February 10 and last through May 2.

At The Journey, the year 2020 is going to be the Year of The Bible.  So, joining a Spring 2020 Growth Group is going to be the best place for you to get the most out of this exciting year and make sure that this is the biggest year of spiritual growth in your life.

You will be able to sign up for the group of your choice in one of two ways:

(1) Sign up at any Journey Sunday service beginning on Sunday, January 5.
(2) Sign up online right here beginning the first week in January!

So, be sure to keep your eyes open for opportunities to get plugged in!

In the meantime, another great way to get plugged in is to check out one of our upcoming events here: JourneyNYC.com/Events

What Are Growth Groups?

Growth Groups are The Journey’s groups of 15-20 people that will meet together once a week (60 – 90 minutes) for 10 weeks this Fall to study the Bible, grow in their faith and have fun meeting new people.
And this Fall all of our Growth Groups will be studying the Parables of Jesus to go along with our new Fall teaching series The Greatest Stories Ever Told: The Parables of Jesus Sundays through November 24.
PLUS – we are giving you the Bible study book – Parables – for FREE. All you need to do is sign up for a Parables of Jesus Growth Group below and then pick up your book for FREE at any Journey service this Sunday.


What is a growth group?
Growth Groups are The Journey’s groups of 12 to 15 people that meet in convenient locations all across New York City to learn more about the Bible, grow in their faith, and meet some great new friends.

Is there a group that’s right for me?
Since there are a variety of groups, you’ll have the chance to share your life experiences with others who have similar ones.

Do I need to buy a book or study guide?
During our Spring and Summer Growth Group semesters, each group studies a book or Bible study unique to their group. During these semesters you will need to purchase the book or study guide needed for your group. During Fall Growth Group semester, you will be provided with everything you need for your group. If purchasing the book or study guide needed for your group is a financial hardship, simply email [email protected] to let us know and we will make sure you have what you need for your group. We never want your financial ability to purchase your book to prevent you from joining a Growth Group.

What happens when I sign up?
When you sign up, the leader of your new Growth Group will contact you with the address of the Group’s meeting place, the date and time you’ll be starting on, and all the other information you’ll need to have a great experience.

When will my group meet?
Growth Groups meet once a week, and each meeting is just sixty to ninety minutes long. Groups meet for ten to twelve times over the semester. It’s a short-term commitment but the positive impact on your life will be long-term.

What will the people in my group be like?
Growth Group is made up of the same people that attend a Journey worship service. You’ll most likely see a few people that you have seen on Sunday as well as some people that you’re meeting for the first time. It’s a great way to get to know other people outside of a Sunday service.

Can I invite others?
Invite as many friends, co-workers, neighbors, family, etc. that aren’t connected to another church. Growth Groups are designed to get people connected to our church and to develop friendships with one another. The more people, the better.
