Classes, Groups, and Events

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


Men's Discipleship Class

Saturdays, 8:30-10am in Room 148

Adult Men's Class

Led by Al Williams

This class is designed for men to bond with other men of all ages. We’ll share experiences and learn spiritual truths that allow us to claim the promises that God has provided to face the challenges of today’s life and family with true leadership, integrity, and grace. Join us this Fall as we begin our study in Galatians. No registration required.

We will resume January 28th.


Wednesdays, Jan 11-Feb 15, 6:30-8pm
In Room 110

Audience: Adult Women

Led by Lisa Black

When the story of our lives hasn’t turned out to be quite what we always dreamed of, life can feel disorienting; as if we’re being tossed and thrown by incoming waves and there’s no way through. How do you navigate these storms of life with an internal calm and peace that is anchored and unwavering? The author of this study, Ann Voskamp, teaches S.A.C.R.E.D., a daily habit that will reorient your soul in relation to God through Scripture, prayer, and study. This powerful spiritual practice will help you navigate the hard seasons where it feels like there’s no way. Cost $16.

Starting Point

Sunday, February 19th -OR- April 23rd, 12:15-3:30pm in Room 109

This class is designed for you to learn more about WRCC and how we can help you grow in your faith so that you can live out your unique God-given purpose to influence others for Christ.

Precept | 1 & 2 Samuel

Thursdays, Jan 5-Apr 27, 6:30-8:30pm -OR- Fridays, Jan 6-Apr 28, 9-11am via Zoom

Audience: Adults

Led by Pam Bloom

How can a covenant-keeping God turn our worst sins into a victorious faith? Through the life of David, we see the importance of a life of obedience and how it is lived. Return to Him, He is waiting with open arms! Cost $36.

Learning to Forgive

Wednesdays, Jan 11-Feb 22 -OR- Mar 1-Apr 19, 6:30-8pm in Room 109

Audience: Adults | Led by Randy Boltinghouse

The need for forgiveness exists deep in the human heart and never goes away. This need to both give and receive forgiveness explains our distance from God and others when there is wrongdoing. We’ll go through biblical parables and passages on forgiveness as we strive to learn what it means to offer and obtain forgiveness; why it matters; and how to forgive and live as forgiven Christians. A helpful (optional) companion to this study is Tim Keller’s Forgive - Why Should I and How Can I?  Here’s a quote from Keller’s book: Jesus said, “I want to show you that the deepest need of your nature is for me. Only I can bestow perfect love, new identity, endless comfort, hope, and glory. And the doorway into all of that is to know forgiveness. It’s time to open that door and walk through it.”

The Surpassing Value of Knowing Christ | A Study of Philippians

Sundays, Mar 5-Apr 2, 9-10:45am

Adult Women’s Class

Led by Michelle Lewis

This class is designed to help women grow in knowledge of the Lord together. As we seek to know the Word of God better, we will also know ourselves as God sees us. This group will be a place where we will open God’s Word together, learn from one another, and share in a safe space as we all enter in with teachable spirits.

1st Saturdays of the Month

This Spring, we will continue to offer a church-wide serving opportunity on the first Saturday of each month.

Each experience will train and equip us as a church family (adults and children) to serve together in simple, yet impactful ways.

As we continue to serve our community together, we fully expect God to open doors to pray for people and organizations, share the gospel with non-believers, and empower believers with timely encouragement. We also expect God to increase our own faith and boldness to step out and do things for Him in our everyday lives.
