Why We Gather

We know that in our culture, “Church” is often thought of as the building that you go to on Sunday morning. At Sojourn, we believe the church is a community of people who have trusted in Jesus for their salvation and who gather together for worship.

Although we gather on Sundays for corporate worship, we believe it is important for the church to meet in smaller groups throughout the week to authentically live life together in a practical way. Although every Community Group will have a different expression, all of our groups center around prayer, care, food, and mission.

Check out the map below for meeting locations and times. We'd love for you to get plugged in. More detailed information is available below the map.
