ADULT GROUPS

Sunday School Classes

Sunday School classes provide an opportunity to study the Word of God in a small group setting on Sunday mornings in conjunction with our Sunday morning worship services.  Our intent is to actively engage people in purposeful and in-depth study of God’s Word.  Sunday School classes help achieve this goal and will produce opportunities for spiritual growth, discipleship, fellowship, ministry, and personal evangelism.

Sunday School classes are available at both 9:30 am and 11 am and include groups for men, women, all adults, young adults, and first-time parents.

Location: Red Zone (251 Lee Highway #167, Warrenton)

Once upon a time, people knew their neighbors. They talked to them, had cook-outs with them, and went to church with them. In our time of unprecedented mobility and increasing isolationism, it’s hard to make lasting connections with those who live right outside our front door. We have hundreds of “friends” through online social networking, but we often do not even know the full name of the person who lives right next door. This unique and inspiring book asks the question: What is the most loving thing I can do for the people who live on my street? Through compelling true stories of lives impacted, the authors show listeners how to create genuine friendship with the people who live in closest proximity to them.If you would like more information, or if you have any questions, contact Jim Raines or Danny Thompson.

The Book of James by Francis Chan

A study for women

Sundays from 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Facilitator: Kim Raines
Location: WBC Room 216
Meeting January 13, February 17, and February 24 (3 sessions)
Cost: None

True faith produces fruit. A faith without action and without life change is ultimately a dead faith. The book of James speaks to the realities of a living faith in Jesus—the kind of roll-up-your-sleeves and get-your-hands-dirty discipleship that is borne out of an authentic relationship with the risen Lord. James writes to believers who know suffering, who have faced trials, and who ultimately desire a deep relationship with God. Frances Chan unpacks the dense truth contained in the book of James in front of the iconic backdrop of San Francisco, the city where he lives and ministers. Francis works through James verse-by-verse, challenging followers of Christ to move beyond a private, intellectual knowledge of God and His Word, to a vibrant faith that impacts every square inch of life. If interested, or for more information, contact Kim Raines.

The Rock, the Road, and the Rabbi by Kathie Lee Gifford, with Rabbi Jason Sobel

A study for women

Sundays from 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Facilitator: Kim Raines
Location: WBC Room 216
Begins March 3
Cost: $20

As a lifelong student of Scripture, Kathie Lee Gifford has always desired a deeper understanding of God’s Word and a deeper knowledge of God Himself. But it wasn’t until she began studying the biblical texts in their original Hebrew and Greek—along with actually hiking the ancient paths of Israel—that she found the fulfillment of those desires. Now you can walk with Kathie Lee on a journey through the spiritual foundation of her faith: Jesus Christ (the Rock), Israel (the Road), and God’s Word (the Rabbi). If interested, or for more information, contact Kim Raines.

When Helping Hurts by Steve Corbett and Brian Fikkert

A study for all adults

Sundays from 5 pm - 6 pm
Leader: Stephanie Usrey
Location: WBC Library
Begins Sunday, January 13 (12 sessions)
Cost: $14
Class Limit: 10 participants

Good intentions are not enough. Unleashing and equipping people to effectively help the poor requires repentance and the realization of our own brokenness. When Helping Hurts articulates a biblically based framework concerning the root causes of poverty and its alleviation. A path forward is found, not through providing resources to the poor, but by walking with them in humble relationship. Whether you are involved in short-term missions or the long-term empowerment of the poor, this book helps in three key areas:

  • Foundational Concepts: Who are the poor?
  • Principles: Should we do relief, rehabilitation, or development?
  • Strategies: How can we help people effectively here and abroad?

Focusing on both North American and Majority World contexts, When Helping Hurts provided proven strategies for effective poverty alleviation, catalyzing the idea that sustainable changed comes not from the outside in, but from the inside out. To register, email the church office or call 540-347-3509.
