Our next community group kickoff is in august!!!

Community Groups: Grab | gather | Grow

  • GRAB: During the month of February, grab and fill out a Community Group Host Card in the lobby at the next steps table or simply fill out the Host Form below. 
  • GATHER: After signing up to host, gather a group of people. Invite friends at Sojourn, people you talk to before and after the service, etc. Also, invite co-workers, friends that do not have a church, and neighbors. Basically, just let people know you are hosting a group, what time it is meeting, and what curriculum you are studying. 
  • GROW: Once you have signed up and gathered a group, now it is time to meet together and grow. Meet every other week or weekly for the next few months with the purpose of growing in your relationships with God and each other. 

Community Groups are very important at Sojourn. They are a main way we seek to facilitate building friendships and doing life together.

  1. The book of jonah

  2. Work as Worship

  3. Jesus and The Journey to Joy

  4. Living Life Together (Women's Study) & The End of Me

Option 4 is two studies. Each study has only 4 episodes, so we recommend going through both studies back to back. There are several studies specifically for youth on Sojourn's RightNow Media channel. Hover over the images below to learn more about the study. 

 

 
 From RightNow Media:  At the end of the day, God is less concerned with what we do for Him than who we are in Him. Few figures illustrate that truth better than Jonah. Focused on the prophet rather than his prophecy, the story of Jonah gives us a picture of a man on the run due to his own selfish desires. Instead of showing mercy to his enemies, he determined to keep God's grace to himself rather than share it with those he considered undeserving. Can you relate?  Over the course of 8 verse-by-verse sessions, pastor and author Eric Mason expands our vision to see that Jonah's story is our own. Far more than a thrilling Sunday school adventure, it offers a profound glimpse into the conflict that occurs when God calls resistant believers to His mission. More importantly, it underscores the depths of His compassion not only in redeeming the lost, but redeeming those He has called to participate in His reconciling work.  So climb aboard and settle in as Eric reveals how God uses extraordinary circumstances to break our hearts of selfishness, convince us of His tender care, and unite our lives to His glory.

 From RightNow Media: Many Christians—from the CEO to the teacher to the stay-at-home mom—spend a great deal of time working and yet do not realize how their work intersects with their faith. They compartmentalize their faith to Sunday morning and see the rest of their week as having little to do with their walk with God. Scripture, however, makes no division between the sacred and secular parts of our lives. God gives us our work, talent and skills so that through them we might worship Him.  This six-part Bible study resource will challenge all of us to consider the reason God calls us to work. It will cause you to consider why He may have you in your current position and encourage you to look beyond how your job makes you feel and see purpose and significance in your work.  Through powerful biblical teaching, real-life documentary stories and engaging video illustrations, this series will help us understand the biblical mandate for work. We have been called to work with excellence, integrity, and diligence, and our careers are opportunities to be on mission for Christ in the marketplace. God gives us great potential for impact on our families, churches, communities and the world through the blessing of our work.

 From RightNow Media:  The Rhythm of Rest, Grace, and Community     Do you stay busy to avoid deep connections? Do you resist community for fear of being judged? Do you need to reconcile a relationship?     There are messy parts in all of our lives that we would rather not reveal—like strained relationships, sinking finances, and cluttered living rooms. We keep the doors of our hearts and homes closed for fear of being exposed. But what if we invited others in and experienced the beautiful acceptance and deep connection of Christian community?  Author and speaker Shauna Niequist is passionate about living life in community. In four intimate sessions, she walks through Scripture, challenging women to step out of isolation and fear and pursue relationships rooted in rest, grace, and reconciliation. As you learn the benefits of living an authentic life with others in Christ and watch real-life stories of women who have experienced freedom in meaningful community, you will discover why God designed and delights in relationships.

 From RightNow Media: Are you sometimes perplexed with Jesus's teachings? Do you really want what he wants? Bestselling author Kyle Idleman reveals that the key to the abundant life Jesus promised lies in embracing His inside-out way of life.  As he examines Jesus's Sermon on the Mount, Kyle unpacks many counter-intuitive truths: brokenness is the way to wholeness, mourning is the path to blessing, and emptiness is required in order to know true fullness. Ultimately, you will discover how Jesus transforms you as you begin to live out these paradoxical principles. Only when you come to the end of yourself can you begin to experience the full, blessed, and whole life Jesus offers.
