How Do I Meet People?

Our church is not a place for spectators. It is a place for team members. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a busy mom, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of our vibrant church community. Here is how you can learn, serve, and grow at this church.
Life Groups
Often, small groups of people are better able to interact and learn about a topic than larger groups are. For that reason, our church has small group Bible studies. The size of the group is anywhere from six to twelve people who meet on Sunday mornings..
 Waynesville Christian School

We are a private Christian School ,We also have school age before and after school programs housed in First Baptist Church Waynesville.  We are a licensed school program through the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services. We have nurturing and credentialed teachers on staff to ensure that your child is learning cognitively, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. It is our desire to provide a safe and enjoyable learning environment and to instill your child with a love of God and a love for lifelong learning.

 
Young Adults
Life can get complicated once you cross that nebulous threshold into adulthood. There are complicated decisions. Bigger stakes. Serious relationships. And a whole lot more decisions. The young adult group of our church provides a welcoming atmosphere for college and early-career aged young people. They meet on Sunday mornings and special event times.
Women’s Group
Women’s groups give the ladies in our church family special times of interaction. Our women’s groups meet for special events as well as times of Bible study, prayer and, of course, food. These groups provide a refreshing discipleship opportunity for the women in the church.
Men’s Accountability Group…Coming Soon
Accountability among men is an act of integrity. Accountability is designed to protect, encourage, and develop men of all ages. Accountability groups consist of three men each. Accountability groups meet together as their schedules allow and keep in touch by email or phone.
Married Couples
Even though marriage is one of the most important institutions, it is the one which is under the most attack–internally and externally. The church gives married couples the opportunity to join classes to focus on putting Christ as the head of their daily lives in relationships.
