Pilgrim’s Journey Groups

St. Matthews Baptist Church is committed to making more disciples and even more effective disciples. One important part of our discipleship-making efforts has been The Pilgrim’s Journey, which we created at SMBC. The Pilgrim’s Journey 1.0 is a nine-month, small group, discipleship experience designed to help us be more like Jesus in what we know, become, and do. We also added Pilgrim’s Journey 2.0, as a second year to further deepen this discipleship experience.
