Find Your People by Jennie Allen

Wednesdays, June 8th - July 20th, 6:30-8pm in Room 106

Adult women’s class


We aren’t supposed to be this lonely. In a world that’s both more connected and more isolating than ever before, we’re often tempted to do life alone. In this book, Jennie Allen draws on fascinating insights from science and history, timeless biblical truth, and vulnerable stories from her own life. This class will provide space for discussion and connection as we dive into what it means to live in Christian community. Cost of book: $16


Led by Lisa Black

Men's Discipleship Class

Saturdays, 8:30-10am in Room 148

Men's Class


This class is designed for men to bond with 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. We will be continuing this summer with our series on LOVE from a biblical male perspective. We will be looking at instructions for family, career, social, and community involvements as men following Christ.


Led by Al Williams

Bible Basics

Sunday, June 12th - July 24th, 9-10:30am in Room 106

Adult co-ed class


We are living in days where fewer and fewer people are familiar with the Bible. Even if you have a history of going to church and can quote or recognize scriptures, you may not have a framework for which to read it or even know why you should want to read this ancient book. In this casual class, we will explore topics such as how we got the Bible, who wrote it, how it is laid out, how to interpret the various genres in the Bible, sin, salvation, baptism, and prayer. Bring your Bibles and your questions and let’s grow in faith together. No class on July 3rd.


Led by Brenda Tennill


*Please note the dates for this class have changed due to teacher availability.

Women's Discipleship

Saturdays, 8:30-10am in The Fireside Room

Adult women’s class


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. Our study will revolve around God’s Word, so all you need to do is bring your Bible (if you don’t have one, we’ll get you one).


Led by Michelle Lewis

 

Groups

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

Adult co-ed group


Empty Arms is a grief support network established by two moms 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 stage of gestation or infancy. Our meetings are designed to address needs at every stage in the grief process. Your loss may be recent or may have occurred many years ago. Everyone mourns in unique ways at different times.


Led by Jamie Summers, Stephanie Helfrich, and Erin Beck

Men's Mentoring

Men’s mentoring groups meet throughout the week, often early in the morning, and provide a Bible study and a chance to interact with other men on important issues. Often deep friendships are formed in these groups that last for years. Contact Spiritual Formation Coordinator Rachel Allen to get connected with a group.

Grief Share: Loss of a Spouse

Adult co-ed group


You have begun a journey we know you did not want. We are so sorry for your loss, and we want to come alongside you on this journey of grief. Our desire is to help you process your grief beginning with this one-time gathering that enables you to hear from others who have walked in your shoes and are on the path of healing. Gain reasons for hope and practical tips for coping with your loss.

Meeting time:

Monday, August 22nd, 6:30-8:30pm in Room 109

Cost for book: $5


Led by Lisa Black & Sharon Hecht

Women's Book Club

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. This summer, we will read through Sensible Shoes: A Story about the Spiritual Journey by Sharon Garlough Brown. For more information about the book club, contact Jan Pletcher at
