New Church “Journey Programs” (spiritual growth programs) provide an opportunity for personal growth and spiritual transformation. They focus on a story or theme from the Bible, with insights and opportunities for reflection, for concrete application to your life.
Programs generally run for seven weeks and are geared for either small groups, or for individual study and growth. Read an overview of what Journey Programs are about, or pick a program from the grid below for details about the individual programs. You can subscribe to participate in the programs; by subscribing, you will receive daily emails for the length of the program with readings, insights, and opportunities for reflection. Or consider running one of these programs with your own group.
Ultimately, living gratefully is about more than simply appreciating what you have; it's about delighting in the opportunity to give to others.
