Life Groups

Life Groups are a great way to share life.  They typically run for 8 week sessions and new sessions start in both the Spring and the Fall.  Think you might be interested?  Check out the most current life groups below.

Winter Session:  Week of January 28 – March 11
Essentials of Life 

What does the Christian life look like?  Is it a life of freedom and fulfillment or rules and practices?  What is your part and what is God’s part?   In our winter Life Group session, every group will contemplate and discuss the Essentials of Life.  We will clear away religious cobwebs and look at life as God meant it to be lived.  Whether you’ve been a Christian for 5 minutes or 50 years, if you want to continue to grow in relationship with God, this Life Group session is for you!

Serve @ West Ridge
West Ridge is blessed to have some of the greatest talent in Pittsburgh! It’s no coincidence that the vision God has given us can only be accomplished with all of us coming together. God is blessing us with so many new families and we are preparing for our next steps as a church. If you are not part of one of our ministries, we are asking to you to plug in. Every gift is important...from kids to technology to hospitality. For more information, email or check the serve box on your Communicator Card!

Financial Peace University
Each year West Ridge partners with Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University to help you take control of your finances.  Too many of us live paycheck to paycheck, use debt to purchase things we "can't afford" and in general just put ourselves under a lot pressure simply because we don't have our finances under control. 

Come join us at our next class as we learn the techniques that have helped millions get out of debt, save for the future and breathe a sigh of relief.
