At Wake Forest Presbyterian Church, we are
Rooted in Christ
Growing Together in Faith
Reaching Out to Others
Wherever you are in your faith journey and whatever stage your family is at, we have designed our ministries to be there with you.
WFPC Children's Ministry is a place where we:
Gather together to share the love and teach the truth of God's love through Christ.
Reach out to the children in our church, our community, and our world.
Offer discipleship and mission opportunities to children of all ages.
Walk with parents and families in the faith formation of children.
We would love to have your child share in the journey of our "His Kids" ministry with us, where we grow in God's love and Grace together!

Relationships are important in Youth Ministries at Wake Forest Presbyterian Church. We believe that God calls us to live in community and to care for one another – just like Jesus loved His disciples and the people He taught, healed and saved. For that reason, we offer many opportunities for Youth to deepen their relationships with God, peers, teachers and the world. We encourage Youth to find a place to plug in and grow in their faith.

We are never too old to learn new an unexpected truths from the Bible and from our relationships with each other. In the Adult Ministries at Wake Forest Presbyterian Church this truth is nurtured and explored. Classes and small groups of all types meet throughout the week to study, explore, and authentically share what is happening in their lives and how it relates to their faith. Minds are being expanded with new ideas and authentic emotions are embraced as we continue to relate and make meaning together on this Christian walk. Jesus once said: “I will show you what someone is like who comes to me, hears my words, and acts on them. That one is like a person building a house, who dug deeply and laid the foundation on rock; when a flood arose, the river burst against that house but could not shake it, because it had been well built (Luke 6:47-48).” Come out and learn with us as you continue to build your foundation!
Mission and Outreach
Jesus calls each of us to minister to others, especially those who are less fortunate. We are to love them as we love ourselves and God. The mission of our ministry is to create and heighten awareness of the places in need throughout the world and to present our church family with ministries/mission opportunities that reach out to these places and that spark our hearts with passion, faith, and love for others. As we consider places in need, we look to all areas – near and far – in our local community, in the United States, and around the world – that are struggling with poverty, physical hunger, spiritual hunger, discrimination, disasters, disease, and social injustice.
The music ministry at WFPC is an open, welcoming, diverse group of loving, dedicated and talented servants whose mission is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ through song; lead and encourage the congregation in both traditional and contemporary worship; and provide an avenue through which individuals may share their gifts and be an integral part of the worship. The music ministry is comprised of Praise Team, Chancel Choir, Adult Handbells, Handbell Ensemble, SHinE Ringer and Singers, Liturgical Dance, and Timeless Creation Youth Praise Band. If you have a heart for worship and music, our music ministry is a safe place for you to bring your heart and your gifts to God, to tune in, and to deepen the worship of your heart in a community of believers.
As a church family, we try to be there for each other in the good times and the bad. In addition to partnering with you in prayer, we have folks that will walk the road with you. When you're having a rough time, our Stephen Ministry caregivers are there to meet with you one-on-one to listen and to support you. We also have a GriefShare group that gathers each Wednesday night (seasonally).
Wake Forest Presbyterian Church is proud to charter a Cub Scout Pack (boys and girls K-5th grade), Boy Scout Troop (boys 5th grade through 18 years) and Venture Crew (coed. 14-20 years). Scouting was developed over 109 years ago to develop character and leadership in young men (and now young women). Troop 5 was founded over 80 years ago and has produced 24 Eagle Scouts so far, with plans to make many more. We meet on Monday nights at 7pm at the church, Boy Scouts in the CLC, Cub Scouts in the Red Modular, and Venture Crew on the 1st and 3rd Mondays in the Youth Room. Stop in and see what Scouting can do for your children.
Walk Through Bethlehem
Traditionally held the first full weekend in December and welcoming thousands on-campus to experience the Christmas story, Walk Through Bethlehem will look very different this year. We are planning to film a modified version to continue to share with our greater community the story of the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
