LIFEGROUPS

OUR NEXT LIFEGROUP SESSION WILL BEGIN 02/18/19

REGISTRATION OPENS IN JANUARY

What is a LifeGroup?  A LifeGroup is a small group of people doing life together by meeting weekly, or bi-weekly, over the course of three semesters which typically run for eight to ten weeks.

 

What happens at a LifeGroup?  A LifeGroup will last for approximately 90 minutes. During that time, you will have the opportunity to learn one of many available topics, and build relationships with a small group of people.

 

Why should I join a LifeGroup?  Sometimes, it is difficult to get to know people in a large church, and LifeGroups provide the best medium for building relationships to last a lifetime.

 

Do I need to purchase a book? Book purchases are recommended but not required to attend the LifeGroup.  Attendees will purchase their own materials.  The links below are only suggestions, as you may find more cost-effective resources on your own.

CHANGEME

WOMEN’S GROUP

TUE @ 7:00 PM

EVERY WEEK

WCWC 294 Old Mamaroneck Rd

White Plains, NY 10605

Facilitator: Gayle Smith

Class Description

Evelyn Christenson writes, “I have discovered through the years that surprising things happen when I pray, ‘Lord, change me–don’t change my husband, don’t change my children, don’t change my pastor, change me! More and more the fact comes into focus that they, and not I, are responsible before God for their actions. But I am responsible for the changes that need to be made in me.” In this LifeGroup, we will discover seven methods of real, inside-out change, as well as ways to be assured it is God who is doing the changing.

CHARACTER

COED GROUP

TUE @ 7:00 PM

EVERY OTHER WEEK

WCWC 294 Old Mamaroneck Rd

White Plains, NY 10605

Facilitator: Pastor Jason Murphy

Class Description

This Leadership LifeGroup is designed for anyone who is in leadership at WCWC or who aspires to leadership. Leadership will destroy the man or woman whose character has not been prepared for it. A leader’s character is like the foundation of a building. If it is not strong, deep and firmly fixed in place, the man’s life and all he has built will eventually fall. It does not matter how anointed he is, how attractive his ministry or powerful his gifts, without character, all threatens to collapse. With promotion in the Kingdom of God comes fiercer temptations, harsher attacks and greater opportunities for failure and defeat. Therefore, before God takes us higher (by elevating us or increase our anointing), he needs to deeped our foundation. Too many have been promoted before their character was enlarged to support that promotion. As a result, they became top heavy and eventually fell. The Character of Leadership is a study in the six pillars comprising a leader’s character: integrity, humility, responsibility, purity, charity and spirituality. This is great study material for pastors, ministers, christian leaders and church leadership teams.

THINK

MEN’S GROUP

TUE @ 7:30 PM

EVERY WEEK

WCWC 294 Old Mamaroneck Rd

White Plains, NY 10605

Facilitator: Daniel Valentin

Class Description

Why do we lose our temper? Why do we tend to hurt those we care for most? How do families find themselves broken? The reason is often the way we think. Beyond behaviors and deeper than attitudes, thinking determines outcome more than anything else. The book of Romans challenges us to be no longer conformed to the patterns of the world but rather to be transformed by the renewing of our minds. So much of what we are missing in life is associated with the way we process events in the world around us, draw conclusions about our circumstances, and act out of conclusions uninformed by the truth of Jesus and the Gospel. In a world constantly bombarded by the fictions of a self-absorbed culture, managing our thinking becomes an even trickier proposition. If you repeatedly find yourself in places where you don’t want to go, it’s your thinking that’s leading you there. This 10-session Bible study by James MacDonald identifies strongholds, examines how they came to be, and offers believers a biblical path toward repentance and the renewing of their minds. God offers our only hope for victory over disposition, dysfunction, double-mindedness, and every other mental stronghold. With Him we can think differently.

Class Description

This LifeGroup is for students in 6th-12th grade. We will take a closer look at the life of David to discover how God expands our root system in the hidden places before leading us to where we all desire to go, the visible world. It was in a field of prayerful devotion, a season of serving, and a cave of community that God prepared David for his crown, the same way God prepares us. In the LifeGroup, teens will be challenged to take a close look at their own lives. In the busyness of teen life, it’s important to slow down enough to let God grow a root system in our lives so that we can bear fruit that remains. Teens will be challenged to discover what it looks like to embrace His process so that they can do what He has called them to do, change the world.

In this study, we will capture the essence of armor bearing; service to God and to others with willingness, humility, joy and love. “The greatest one among you will live as the one who is called to serve others, because the greatest honor and authority is reserved for the one with the heart of a servant”(Matt 20:26-27).
