Small Groups

Church members gather on the stairs, smiling brightly for a group photo.

Small groups are an informal space where you are invited to meet and share with others. At WPMF, these groups are created by individuals with some shared interest like fellowship, study, sharing, and/or prayer. All groups are generally open to new members but please reach out to the listed group contact person to be certain or contact the Pastoral Team. Our current small groups are:
