Journey Groups


At Bakersfield First Church, our vision is to be marked by Christ's presence in our lives, the Spirit's presence in our church and our presence in the world.  Journey Groups are designed to bring together opportunities for learning and growth (Christ's presence in our lives) with opportunities for service in our community (our presence in the world).

Journey Groups are designed to foster relationships among people, to allow those relationships to be a source of grace and support, and then to make an impact on the community around us.  Every Journey Group is a bit different.  They meet all over Bakersfield and they are involved in lots of different service opportunities.  But they are also all the same in that they will be built around Christ's presence in our lives and our presence in the world.  We hope you'll take a moment to learn about these unique groups, find out where one meets near you, and get connected soon!
