Relationally Based Discipleship
Our purpose at Whyte Ridge Baptist Church is to nurture followers of Jesus Christ through healthy relationships. Acknowledging that, though we cannot create friendships for others, we aim to create a variety of environments where Christ-honouring friendships can either begin to form or continue to develop. Our key ways of reaching this goal are through:
LifeGroups are the primary means by which we want to encourage our church family to take intentional steps forward in relationally-based discipleship. We desire that, through LifeGroups, we will gain a better understanding of what it means to live as the body of Christ in our day and age. Read the brochure to learn more about LifeGroups.

Family Meals and Equipping Seminars
Throughout the year, usually on the first Sunday of the month, we have a family meal together at the church. The cost of supper is $5/person or $10/family. Once supper is done we provide childcare for children ages 10 and under so that we can have a teaching and discussion time together over a topic that is related to helping us grow together in one of our core values. We intentionally keep this night to 2 hours so that families with younger children can get home at a reasonable time, or so that friends can still go out for coffee to continue the conversation afterwards.
An important part of friendship is having fun and laughing together. With that in mind we plan a number of events each year to help us connect at that level (at least once/season) Some of our past events have been: curling bonspiels, a night of tobogganing, variety nights and hosting both summer and fall carnivals for our church family and the communities we live in.
