The community group ministry of WPC exists to enable intentional and growing relationships with the Lord and with one another. Community Groups connect people through the means of accountability, Bible study, challenging discussion, and service to each other as well as to our community. Each Community Group has a Host Family and an assigned Facilitator, but every Community Group also forms its own identity. Meeting times, focus of service, whether or not a meal is included, or if child care is provided, etc., is at the prerogative of each group.

“And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” Hebrews 10:24-25.
