Christianity Explored is an informal and relaxed seven-week course. It's for anyone who wants to think about the meaning of life. It's run by ordinary Christian people local to you and is completely free. You don't need to know anything about the Bible, and you won't be asked to pray or sing. You can ask any question you like, or you can just sit and listen.
Whoever you are, whatever you're thinking, CE is a place for you to explore what life's all about. It might just be the best news you've ever heard.
Wednesday nights, starting March 27, and going for 7 weeks.
6:30-8:00 PM at Walnut Ridge Baptist Church in the Fireside Room
(Enter the parking lot from Ridgeway Ave and look for the sets of double doors. Someone will be there to welcome you.)
The course is free, but so we can be prepared to best welcome you, please use this form to let us know you plan to be there.

Join us this Sunday morning at 10:15 to worship our Creator together! We also have a variety of Sunday School classes that are offered at 9 am right before our Worship Service. We have greeters at the doors that will help you get to the right place. We also offer child care for both Sunday School and Worship Service.

Every Sunday morning at 9 AM during the months of January and February, we will be in the auditorium praying as a church family. We would love for you to join us as we pray to our amazing God. We are excited to see what God will do through this time of prayer with our brothers and sisters in Christ!
Is the call to make disciples for the trained professional, the super-Christian, or the missionary man?
No! Every Christian can have the joy of helping other people move closer to Jesus. We do so by prayerfully sharing the word of God in a variety of ways with the people to whom God sends us, and we don't give up.
In other words, God makes disciples through the
persevering proclamation of the word of God
by the people of God
in dependence on the Spirit of God.
To learn with others, be encouraged, and receive practical training, join us for the Disciple Making Experience, Part 2. The theme of Part 2 is Engaging the Lost.
Saturday, November 3, from 8:45-11:45 in the Fireside Room (Door D).
The cost is $5.
(Part 3 will focus on Establishing and Equipping the Believer, and will be on Saturday, December 1.)
Begins Tuesday September 18th, 7-8:30pm, Room 205
The Book of Colossians — In this 8-session series, Louie Giglio will take us through the book of Colossians to help us form a complete picture of Jesus. What we believe about Him influences everything from our corporate worship to our relationships to our attitude toward sin. Now alive in Christ, we can live a life worthy of God instead of falling back into the ways of the world.
Kick off on September 11, 7-8:30 PM, Fireside Room
Tuesday Nights -- 9 Weeks -- 7-8:30 PM
Ladies, please consider joining us in this 9-week study and feel free to invite friends from outside our church. We'll take an in-depth look at these words of Jesus recorded in the book of Matthew. We'll encourage one another to spending time during the week with sections of the text and corresponding questions, and then come together to discuss and to hear from speaker and author Jen Wilkin, using her guides and videos. Please contact Margaret Becker with questions.

Sooner or later, every mother will stop and ask herself, Is this all I am?
God has instilled motherhood with meaning and purpose as part of His greater plan for humanity. Whether or not a woman has been called to traditional motherhood, she demonstrates her nurturing gifts daily through caregiving, hospitality, discipleship, teaching, raising children, and serving others.
In this 6-session Bible study, you will discover evidence of God’s mission for motherhood and His greater purpose for each and every woman.
God has and is doing great things in history. The film we have chosen to show, Woodlawn, tells one of those stories. God will be glorified and you will be inspired as you see the true story of how the gospel brought about reconciliation among football players in the very divided city of Birmingham, AL in the early 70’s. Younger children will be cared for in the Fireside Room (ages 3 yrs-10 yrs) and in the nursery (infant-2 yrs).
Invite friends and family to join us! Popcorn and drinks will be provided!
Men’s Pheasant Flurry— September 11th— 6:30-8pm
Join us at the Cedar Falls Gun Club and bring a friend! Clay targets are provided! If you don’t have a shotgun— no worries– there will be plenty to borrow!
Cost is NOTHING. Just bring your own boxes of 12 gauge shells, each round is 25 clays. So bring as many as your shoulder can handle!
