ALL OF CHRIST FOR ALL OF LIFE FOR ALL THE WORLD!

That is our passion at Winona Friends Church.

We are a community of men and women from all walks of life who have been drawn together by the Good News of the Gospel—
that God redeems sinners through the death and resurrection of His Son,
and brings them into an ever-deepening, all-satisfying life with Himself.

We want Winona and the world to hear that Good News!

Our desire is to be a church that is:
Christ-Centered . . .Gospel-Driven . . . Bible-Saturated . . . Spirit-Empowered

Take a few minutes to check out our website and see the many ministries and opportunities for spiritual growth that take place each week here at WFC. But if you really want to know what we are about, you will just have to come and meet us.

We invite you to do that this Sunday at 8:15 or 11:00 AM.

May the Peace of Christ be with you!

“What’s in the Bible?” is the 13-DVD series from VeggieTales® creator Phil Vischer. In his first new project since VeggieTales, Vischer has set out to teach kids (and parents!) the story of the Bible – God’s great rescue plan! We know the stories of Moses, Noah, David, and Jesus, but in this groundbreaking new Bible DVD series, we learn how they all fit together to tell one big, redemptive story.

Join us Sunday mornings, September 7 – November 30 during our Christian Education hour from 9:45-10:45 AM as we discover “what’s in the Bible” together!

You can learn more about this video series and access Family Activity Pages here: www.whatsinthebible.com

WFC will hold a special showing of the movie, “Irreplaceable”
on Sunday, October 5 at 7 pm.

This pro-family documentary, experienced by more than 115,000 people in one night in over 700 theaters, dives deep into the state of “the family” to discover what has led us to the brokenness that too many families experience.  It then provides the insight and real-life stories needed to better understand God’s design for the family.

This film served as the inspiration for “The Family Project” series, which will be the subject of our Wednesday Night Bible Class this Fall.

(A children’s movie will be shown in the FLC for all kids 12 and under.)

September 26,27, & 28 WFC welcomes Dr. David Williams for our annual Spiritual Renewal Conference.

The purpose of the SRC is to encourage deeper love for Christ, greater dependency on Christ, and fuller life in Christ within our church family.

The theme of this year’s conference is, “Come to the Table: Embracing the Presence in our Midst” from Luke 24:13-24.

Dr. Williams writes, “As I spend time with God’s people around the country these days, it seems that we are often like the two disciples on the road to Emmaus, i.e., we have a genuine love for Jesus, but we tend to become so preoccupied with the complexity and confusion of everyday life on planet earth that we can easily miss the tangible presence and transformational companionship of our risen Lord.  This retreat invites each one of us to intentionally carve out some time and space to renew our friendship with Jesus by simply paying attention to Him.”

Friday, September 26:           Dinner at 6 pm – Service at 7 pm
Saturday, September 27:       Service at 7 pm
Sunday, September 28:          Services at 8:15 and 11:00 am – Evening Service at 6 pm

We value expository preaching of the Bible at WFC. Our current sermon series is from the Book of Nehemiah. It tells the story of one courageous man who was willing to be used by God to lead His people in the rebuilding of Jerusalem’s walls and the renewal of their spirits. Come hear about the life of one of the Bible’s greatest leaders as it points ahead to the Greatest One–Jesus–who would come to bring renewal, restoration, and redemption to our lives.
