We believe two important things regarding discipleship groups: The first is that every believer in every generation is called to make disciples (Matthew 28:19-20). The second is that discipleship happens best in relationships.
This means that our goal for every adult in our church family is to be part of a healthy group of people committed together to making disciples.
Our two primary adult discipleship groups are Adult Bible Fellowships (larger groups that meet primarily on Sunday mornings at 9:00 and 10:30am on the church campus) and Life Groups (smaller groups that often meet on the 2nd and 4th Sunday nights of the month in people’s homes).
While Adult Bible Fellowships (ABFs) and Life Groups each look a little different, they are both focused on the same four essential elements of a healthy group:
1) Every group is centered on the word of God. Each of our groups is going to focus on helping each other know and live God’s word.
2) Every group is shepherded with intentional care. This starts by being led by a leader who is focused on caring for group members with tangible, biblical love.
3) Every groups shares life together. We like to say that “WL is Family” and this idea might be best lived out as we share our lives together in real relationships.
4) Every group looks outward. Healthy groups focus on more than themselves. They welcome new people in, disciple and train new leaders, and send out those that God is calling to new opportunities.
If you’re interested in visiting an Adult Bible Fellowship please visit us on a Sunday morning so you can plan to experience an ABF in person. You can see a list of our current ABFs here: https://wlgbc.churchcenter.com/groups
