Discipling Believers

Discipleship encourages believers to learn more about god and help believers grow in their ability to love one another and grow as disciples.

The Mission of the Discipleship ministry is to help believers grow in their faith by sharing the truth of God’s Word.

In a community of faith, our congregation strives to become better disciples of Jesus Christ through spiritual growth, studying the Bible together, and passing on the faith to the next generation. The WPC Discipleship Ministry is committed to growing believers’ relationship with Jesus Christ, in learning more about Christian faith, and infusing daily lives with the grace of God in Christ Jesus for all.

Because of Christ’s commission of discipleship (Matthew 28:19), the WPC Discipleship Ministry is committed to discipling the body of Christ in three main areas:

  • Knowledge of the character and works of God
  • Equipment in the service of the body and world
  • Development of a biblical world and life view

Discipleship nurtures believers to boldly journey toward greater love and understanding of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior so that they will disciple others.

Adult Sunday School

Adult Sunday School

God’s word grows God’s people. It renews minds and transforms lives for the glory of God. In the Adult Sunday School class, we focus on the Bible to provide opportunities for Christian faith by understanding God’s Word and its implications for all of life.

Through our Sunday School ministry, we hope to accomplish several goals:

  1. Disciples devoted to the Lord and a personal relationship with Him through saving faith in Jesus Christ.
  2. Disciples who love to fellowship with one another by studying Scripture together (Acts 2:42).
  3. Disciples committed to knowing and understanding the Bible for personal growth and godliness (1 Timothy 4:7).
  4. Disciples equipped through biblical instruction for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ (Ephesians 4:11-16).

Sunday school starts at 9:45 am in the WPC Library.

Youth Sunday School and Wednesday Night Bible Study

Youth Sunday School and Wednesday Night Bible Study

WPC offers a variety of opportunities for 6th grade through High School Seniors to strengthen their relationship with God.

A new way of looking at the Bible. Instead of going book by book, we discuss the themes and ideas running through the entire Bible using a mix of short videos and discussion questions.

We walk through each literary style found in the Bible, and how each uniquely contributes to the overall whole. Each literary style lives by its own rules and structure. Our goal is to understand the the origins, content, and purpose of the Bible.

Confirmation class helps youth understand what it means to know Christ and be responsible church members. Our youth typically take this class sometime between 6th – 9th grade.  Confirmation classes are taught by the pastor.
