SMALL GROUP MINISTRY
“It is in small groups that people can get close enough to know each other, to care and share, to challenge and support, to confide and confess, to forgive and be forgiven, to laugh and weep together, to be accountable to each other, to watch over each other, and to grow together. Personal growth does not happen in isolation. It is the result of interactive relationships. Small groups are God’s gift to foster changes in character and spiritual growth.” Dr.Gilbert Bilezikian
We want all fpcw members to experience a small group community in order to:
- Connect with one another through deep, meaningful and authentic relationships. Doing life together leads to genuinely caring and supporting each other, and understanding more of who God made us to be.
- Grow in faith through intentional prayer practices, scripture reading and honest discussion around how our lives are connected to and shaped by the Gospel.
- Share the Gospel through actively being the hands and feet of Christ in the world together.
If you are interested in leading a new group, have ideas about groups that could be formed, or want to be a part of a new group, please contact Rev. Erin Raska or Sue Sklansky. Or review our brochure and contact a leader directly.
To learn more about how you and your family can be more engaged in the life of fpcw, speak with our pastors, our Session leaders, and Sue Sklansky, Director of Congregational Care and Engagement.
