Classes, Groups, and Events

We believe that we can only experience life the way God intended in community with other believers. 

Classes

Precept Inductive Bible Study | 1 Corinthians Difficulties in the Body of Christ

Thursdays, Sept. 10 - Jan. 14, 6:30-8:30pm or Fridays, Sept. 11 - Jan. 15, 9-11am via Zoom

Adult Co-ed Class 


Why are there so many divisions in the church? Why does the church sometimes tolerate sin? Are you experiencing any of the same problems that the Corinthians did in your own relationships or in your church? If you have similar questions, this study is an important resource. Learn how to pray by knowing God's mind and will on divisions. What does God say about marriage, divorce, remarriage? Tongues? Prophecy? Giving? Paul addresses these issues raised by Corinthian believers. Learn how to be strong in the Lord, have confidence in Him and not lose heart, and be agents of reconciliation. Cost for workbook: $28 


Taught by Pam Bloom

Take Courage-A Study of Haggai | by Jennifer Rothschild

Wednesdays, Sept. 16 - Oct. 28, 6:30-8:30pm via Zoom

Adult Women's Class 


Do you ever feel like the happy ending of your story is a million miles away? Then you know how the Jewish people felt when they returned to their wrecked land after exile and began rebuilding the temple. They were distracted, discouraged, and ready to throw in the towel. But, the prophet Haggai reminded them they could find courage in the God who had never left them. Sometimes the landscapes of our lives feel wrecked, with our hope and purpose in shambles. We too get distracted and discouraged. However, God’s presence and promises give us courage to press on and trust Him with our story. In this 7-session study on the Book of Haggai, learn to walk confidently in your calling, stay motivated despite opposition, and courageously invest your life in God’s purposes, trusting Him for results you may never see in this lifetime. Cost for workbook: $15

Women's Book Club

Meeting virtually - check out the Facebook Group for full information.

The goal for this book club is to provide opportunities for fellowship for the women of Windsor Road, as well as for women who may not attend the church. When selecting books, we will strive to provide a catalyst for reflection, self-examination, and spiritual growth. Our intent is to create discussion groups where women can share and learn from each other in a safe and Godly environment where the truths of God’s Word are the foundation.

Small Groups

Small Groups are the heart of what we do at Windsor Road. We love to worship together on a Sunday morning, and small groups take spiritual growth to the next level.

Empty Arms

First Thursdays, 6-7:30 at WRCC

Empty Arms is a grief support network led by four moms (Jamie Summers, Stephanie Helfrich, Erin Beck, and Katrina Smith) who have experienced loss including miscarriage, stillbirth, and infant death. We aspire to provide understanding and compassion to parents and families who have suffered loss at any gestation or stage of infancy. Our meetings are tailored to address needs at every stage in the grief process. Your loss may be recent or have occurred many years ago. Everyone mourns in unique ways at different times.

Halloween Hunt

Saturday, October 24th, 2-6pm

Windsor Road is partnering with First Baptist Church of Savoy (FBC) to host a Halloween Hunt! This activity-filled scavenger hunt will take you to several locations in the Champaign Urbana community, and you’ll collect memories and candy along the way! 


Start your hunt anytime between 2-6pm (just make sure you start before 5pm for a chance to complete all the prepared activities) and finish as many or as few activities as you’d like. If you do complete your entire punch card of activities, your family can enter to win a grand prize! This event is tailored to pre-k to middle school aged kids— but all are welcome. 


Upon your arrival at FBC, your family will receive a swag bag stuffed with clues and a map for the Halloween Hunt, some candy, and other fun goodies. You then have several hours to complete the activities at the varying locations. Your Halloween Hunt will conclude at WRCC with a warm beverage, a photo booth, and music. 


Masks are required, costumes are encouraged, and fun is must! 


Cost per family: $5


Interested in volunteering at the event? Sign up for more info.
