Our theme for 2024 at FWC is Leaving a Lasting Legacy. In the month of February we will focus on Lucrative Legacies. Let's discover how to love people well and advance the Kingdom
by using the tools and weapons God has given us.
MAIN IDEA: You are called to leave a legacy.
Head Change: To know that legacy is not about what you get or even what you leave behind; rather, it’s about what you set in motion.
Heart Change: To feel grateful that legacies are passed on through families, and you are part of the family your Heavenly
Father created on Earth.
Life Change: To use whatever massive or meagre resources you have today to begin building something to bless future generations.
MAIN IDEA: We need both ploughs and swords to serve God effectively.
Head Change: To know that the enemy will try to undermine our ministries by taking control of our leadership tools.
Heart Change: To celebrate that God shows us how and when to use ploughs and swords respectively.
Life Change: To fight for the advance of God’s Kingdom, even as we plough the ground, He has already given us.
MAIN IDEA: It is far better to depend on God’s
grace than to rely on your own efforts.
Head Change: To know that God’s seasonal timing
in your life is perfect.
Heart Change: To give thanks for God’s wise,
loving, gracious provision.
Life Change: To move away from the flatlands and step boldly into the hills and valleys, knowing God will bring the rain.
MAIN IDEA: You are called to be both a warrior and a shepherd.
Head Change: To know that it’s possible to
love tenderly and lead tenaciously.
Heart Change: To feel grateful for the shepherds who have
nurtured you and the warriors who have fought for you.
Life Change: To pray for discernment so you’ll know when
to be a shepherd and when to be a warrior.

Our goal is to host a small life group in every zip code in Cumberland and Salem Counties. Our purpose is to form healthy relationships both inside and outside of our church communities.
We have a short training for the recruitment of facilitators. The lessons will be presented on DVDs or streaming but the facilitator will encourage each of the group participants to move forward in the area of weekly focus.
We have used material from College Wesleyan Church, Hamburg Wesleyan Church, Saddleback and others. Past topics include, The Purpose Driven Life, Faultlines, Every Day Matters, 40 Days of Prayer, Soul Shift , Work as Worship, Timothy II, and many others.
Pastor Doug provides a message each Sunday to introduce each theme. The small group discussions are taken from the messages and the weekly DVD or streamed lessons from Right Now Media.
A notebook is usually introduced and made available. Groups will also include daily reading and a weekly note guide.
