So you are looking to move beyond a simple connection with WVC and Jesus, and want to grow in relationship with Him and others. We offer several ways to move in this direction and are exploring more.
What is the next step? To grow in relationship with Jesus and others.

Sunday School for all ages - 9:30am
Adults meet in the "Blue Room" behind the sanctuary and study various topics.
Youth Sunday School meets downstairs in the Fellowship Hall and is geared towards 6-8 grade students. This year we are exploring the Old Testament. During the year-long survey students will look at the meaning of titles, main people and events, and locations with map work. In each book of the Old Testament we highlight the key verses and look for connection to the New Testament. Apologetic discussions, Bible activities and service projects are planned to encourage each pre-teen to embrace the forgiveness and love that the Lord Jesus offers and believe every word of the Bible.
Children's Sunday School for Preschool through Grade 5 will be exploring the stories of the Old Testament. Starting with Genesis and ending in the prophets, each lesson will introduce a BIG IDEA Bible truth that the children can understand at their own level. Through the use of storytelling, object lessons, art and games we desire to instill a love of God's Word in the children's hearts and minds. Children meet in a classroom downstairs off the Fellowship Hall.
Yummy snacks are normally available for those who attend Sunday School.

By Grow, we mean that God wants us to grow in character, talent, and spiritual maturity in the context of our relationship with Him and with others through life in community. God accepts us as we are, but doesn’t intend to leave us there. We want to help each other grow into a fully equipped disciple of Jesus Christ.
How we Grow: We grow primarily in the context of close community, which we practice intentionally in the form of small groups. In the intimacy of a small group, we learn to accept, support, and encourage one another. We learn how to live out our faith and hold each other accountable. We become inspired by others’ lives, and either challenged or encouraged by their stories. We form meaningful relationships founded on our common ground in Christ. We find great joy in learning from and applying God’s word. We work toward serving together as we reach out to others. We can also invite others to explore the loving relationships we enjoy.
