Sunday Bible School

At WBC we believe in teaching sound doctrine to people of all ages.   Therefore, Sunday School is not just for children. We have been blessed with some mature believers who are good teachers of the Word of God.

Sunday Bible School for all ages starts at 10am and ends at 11am.

PARENTS! Our nursery is staffed during this hour.

If you have pre-school children, you may take them to a program just for them in room 5.

 Children

Children are a blessing from the Lord. With these blessings also come responsibilities. As stewards of God’s children, parents are responsible for helping children grow physically, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually. Churches have a responsibility toward children, too. We want to provide an environment in which children are safe, are taught at an age-appropriate level, and are encouraged to develop a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Our weekly children’s classes are taught by experienced teachers. They understand the Bible well and love to communicate it to our children. The breakdown of our classes is as follows: 0-2yrs in the nursery; 3-4yrs in room 5; Kindergarten downstairs (front); 1-2 grades downstairs (middle); 3-4 grades downstairs (back); 5-6 grades in Youth Bldg.; 7-12 grades in Youth Bldg.

Children’s Church

 During the 11:15am Sunday Morning Service, families are together as the Worship Team leads in songs of praise and worship.  After the offertory prayer, children up to grade 5 are called to Children’s church, which is a worship experience focused totally on children and building their understanding of the Bible and promoting a meaningful relationship with God.

7/31/2020 Announcement - Upcoming Events

Dear WBC members and friends,

I trust that you are all doing well as we walk through this world pandemic and social/political unrest by the grace and strength of the Lord Jesus Christ. May we keep our eyes on Jesus, His teachings and the work that He wants us to do.

First, I would like to give a report on our outdoor Sunday Worship Service. For the past eight weeks we have had the joy of gathering in ‘The Grove’ behind the church for uplifting music and spiritual teaching from God’s Word. The attendance has averaged around 100. If you have not come out to join us, please consider attending. This Sunday we will share in Communion. Please bring your own chair, remembering social distance, wear a mask coming, going and speaking to others.

August 9th Pastor Travis will be preaching and we will have a Missions Moment with Curt Detwiler and his wife, Carol.

September 13th we will have our annual Church Picnic. The picnic this year will be different! A true picnic in the grove as we ask you to please bring your own food and beverage. No beverages or food will be served as everyone will bring their own! Please bring chairs or blankets! We are still determining what games maybe involved. We will have a singing time and brief devotional. The start time will be 5:30 pm.

This fall I plan to start a series on ‘Discipleship’ on Sunday evenings.

As we get closer I will communicate the details.

As I close I would like to say, thank you for your continued prayer, work and financial support of the ministry of Whiting Bible Church. May we continue to pray and work to reach our community for Christ.

May the Lord guide us in wisdom and grace as we walk together through these days.

Serving Christ,

Pastor Dave Rittinger
