If you are looking for a way to make friends at Journey and build connections, Community Groups are for you. The purpose of Community Groups at Journey is to provide community and foster friendships among both those who attend Journey and those who do not.

Community Groups meet in homes across the Des Moines metro area on various nights throughout the week. Groups typically meet for an hour and fifteen minutes, although as they get to know one another, a lot of the groups last longer as people hang out afterward.

Our Community Groups meet on a term or semester basis and break for the summer. Our fall groups begin in September and meet into November.  Winter groups begin in January and break before Easter. Spring groups begin after Easter and meet until the end of May.

During the summer we offer various social activities and events, such as our church picnic, Iowa Cubs games, and other events that bring people together.

Check here for a listing of our current groups. If you have questions about Community Groups, please contact our Connections director.
