The Journeys Small Group Ministry is designed to offer a chance to connect with others in authentic Christian community as well as give space for God to meet you wherever you are on your faith journey.
Because we all have different needs and aspirations at different spots on our journey, we have three different types of groups at PVUMC. Our Life Groups provide a chance to spend time with people having similar life experiences to us right now. Our Discussion Groups are ones that are focused on sharing the questions that we all have about God during the week. Interest Groups give us a chance to learn new hobbies, make friends, and share in life-giving activities with one another.
All of these groups have leadership opportunities for those who feel called, and they are also all open to anyone who may be interested in just trying a group out!
