These steps will offer you informational directions, and you'll also have the opportunity to build relationships with other new believers.

Water Baptism

Water baptism is an opportunity for you to publicly share your decision to follow Jesus. Now that you've accepted Him, we'd love to celebrate with you at our next baptism event!

Greater works 02

PWC Fall Small Group (on-site) - Greater Works Shall We Do - Charlotte Fawver

August 30th - November 29th, 2017

Jesus said in John 14:12, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.”

These Words of Jesus are Truth.

Let us approach the Word of God exploring by the leading of the Holy Spirit in how to walk in these greater works. Certainly, Jesus ministered in the miraculous. Is this something that the church should be walking in too? The answer is “yes”.

Come with us and see.

Parenting a new generation register

PWC Fall Small Group (on-site) - Parenting a New Generation - Pastors John & Jeremy Unthank

August 30th - November 29th, 2017

A Tool for Parents and Student Pastors to Understand and Lead Today's Students

The world is changing, and so are today's teens. Any parents who feels unequipped to raise a teenager in today's world, and any student pastor who has ever felt overwhelmed with the alarming statistics, both know parenting and leading this generation can be challenging.

Both need help. Both need a plan. Both need each other. In this study, Chap Clark (Ph.d) articulates the problem with humor and fresh insight in a way you have never heard, and gives practical solutions that will change how you relate to this generation. Whether you work with teenagers or live with them, this DVD-based study will encourage you, challenge you and better equip you to raise healthy adults in today's world-something that is not only possible, but within your reach.

Guardrails reg

PWC Fall Small Group (on-site) - Guardrails - Stan & Nancy Pippin

August 30th - November 29th, 2017

[Guardrails: a system designed to keep vehicles from straying into dangerous or off-limit areas.]

They're everywhere, but they don't really get much attention . . . until somebody hits one. And then, more often than not, it is a lifesaver. Ever wonder what it would be like to have guardrails in other areas of your life—areas where culture baits you to the edge of disaster and then chastises you when you step across the line? Your friendships. Your finances. Your marriage.

Maybe your greatest regret could have been avoided if you had established guardrails. In this study, Andy Stanley will challenge us to stop flirting with disaster and establish some personal guardrails.

Teach us to want 02

PWC Fall Small Group (on-site) - Teach us to Want - Kenya Stafford

August 30th - November 29th, 2017


We all want things: certain relationships, just the right job, affirmation from others, a life full of passion and purpose. Contemporary culture says to go after desire, pursue your “I want” list ruthlessly. Christianity seems to send a different message: Wanting is sinful and selfish. Faith is about obedience and sacrifice.

How do we reconcile the longings in our hearts with the God we're called to follow?

In these 12 sessions, based on the book Teach Us to Want: Longing, Ambition and the Life of Faith, author and Bible teacher Jen Pollock Michel takes women on a brave journey through their many desires, longings, and ambitions. Featuring real-life stories of women wrestling with their desires—Jen offers insight from her own life, dives deep into Scripture and asks what it means to desire as a Christian:

• Is it true that the hardest, least desirable choice is the most obviously holy?

• Is it true that personal desire must never be trusted?

Jen will show biblically how it's not only OK to name and voice our desires—it's actually holy to. When we freely let God know our desires and allow them to be informed by Scripture and re-formed by our spiritual practices, we'll discover a God more loving and generous than we can ever imagine.
