Journey groups_16-9

We were designed for community, and Berkley First is happy to offer groups that meet online and in-person nearly every day of the week.  We have groups for parents, young adults, and adults of all ages.  Check out some of the offerings below and, if you have questions or are interested in starting up a new group, contact Pastor Rachael at
