Age Specific Activities

GraceKidz (Ages 1-Grade 5)

Our Kids ministry called GraceKidz runs during the Sunday Family service between 10am-11:30am. After a short time of worship together as families, the children are invited to GraceKidz for age appropriate classes and picked up when the service ends.

Activate (Jr & Snr High)

Our teens group meets twice a month (usually on weekends) for fun activities, games and age appropriate Bible study and discussion.
 

IUP: Catalyst  (Ages 18-30)

Our college student and young adult group organize social events on campus or around town, and participate in campus related outreach and social action.
Build Relationships with Lifegroup Dinners
Lifegroups are geared towards all age groups building relationships in the context of daily life. Their main purpose is to get to know others in the church and walk through life issues together as a smaller community. These groups meet in different home , giving you at least three options to gather each month. This typically happens over a potluck style meal. This also serves as hub to connect people in the church  to relevant small groups (studies, activities, prayer, worship, etc..) that meet at various other times. Pick up a monthly calendar after one of our services to see times and locations for these gatherings. Contact the church office at admin@wgfellowship.org  if you need further help.
Get equipped with Growth Sessions/Small Groups
Growth Sessions are focused and short classroom style sessions. These are times we dedicate as a church to study the Word of God and apply ourselves to growing in the systematic application of truth the Bible has for us. These are courses hosted by one the members of the teaching team at WGF. We encourage every person to get involved in this aspect of church life, as other gatherings and services don’t afford us the dedicated time to work through the Bible and address questions people may have. These courses are typically short (six sessions max) over the course of a month or so, so people have the freedom to choose the classes they would like to take over the course of a calendar year. Most courses run twice a year, giving people more than one opportunity to sign up.
Bible Study Track
We are sold out on being a church that not only teaches from the Bible, but takes time to equip each believer to study it for themselves. These courses can be expository or thematic in nature.
 
Studies for 2018 include the the books of Psalms, Ephesians, and James
Topical Track
These are meant to cover areas of the Christian life which need focused attention  for followers of Jesus to grow in their knowing of God.
 
Studies for 2018 include topics like Gospel 101, Healing, and Worship Lifestyle.
Life Application Track
Often life issues like marriage, parenting, finances, relationships, grief, etc… need help and restoration. We are committed as a church to give each member tools to navigate these issues of daily life well. 
 
Workshops/seminars for 2018 include: Communication in marriage, parenting, and  finance management
Small Groups are relational home based groups that can either be short or long-term/ongoing. These are times dedicated to growing and nurturing the variety of gifts in the congregation. These could be Bible study based or interest/activity based. These groups make room to cultivate leaders and relationships within the church. The aim is to build each other up. The study based groups will fall into one of the three categories above, but can afford more time for discussion in people’s homes. The interest/activity groups encourage people to gather around a community need, sports, or arts. We believe these groups too are necessary avenues for healthy interactions that include friends and the local community.
