People are wired for relationship with God and with others. Even more, at WCF, we believe that it’s in regular, committed connections with others that we deepen our relationship with God and begin to know ourselves better.
Small groups are the place where we live out the vision of WCF (to be an Authentic Community of Personal Transformation, Social Impact and Vibrant Worship) and where God makes us more like Jesus. By joining a small group, we hope you will:
MAKE CONNECTIONS (Authentic Community) - Small groups are a place for every person to know and be known. We share our lives honestly and openly with one another. We care for one another. For many, our small groups become “family.”
MAKE CHANGES (Personal Transformation) - Small groups are where we grow in our relationship with Jesus through studying Scripture together. We find forgiveness and healing for our brokenness and loving encouragement to walk faithfully in the ways of Jesus. We become who God has created us to be. We discover, develop, and exercise our gifts in community for the strengthening of God’s family and the world around us.
MAKE A DIFFERENCE (Social Impact) - Small groups give us the opportunity to come together to care for those in our communities who are neglected, forgotten, unloved. As a small group, we also encourage each other to make a positive impact that reflects God’s beauty, justice, and goodness.
Discover that we are MADE FOR WORSHIP (Vibrant Worship) - Small groups are where we encourage one another in the life that we were created for: to live in worship of and service to the Living God.
We are not intended to live the Christian life in isolation. God calls us to love, not in abstract or superficial ways, but in life-giving, life-changing relationships. We resist our culture’s consumer mentality that focuses only on what we’re going to get out of our small group. Instead, we join in God’s work in the world as a community of Jesus-followers.
