Walton Community Church

Join Us On Sundays At 9 A.M.

Located in Monroe, Georgia, we are dedicated to the love of Christ, the centrality of the gospel, the authority of the Bible, and the fellowship of God’s people.

WCC strives to be centered around and focused on the life-transforming gospel of Jesus Christ. We seek to love and honor God through studying His Word, singing and praying together, partaking of the Lord’s Supper, sharing the gospel through evangelism and missions, and loving and serving one another and our neighbors.

    Jeff Redding

    Pastor Jeff grew up in Texas and has degrees from Texas A&M (Gig ‘em Aggies!) and Texas Tech (Guns Up Raiders!). He was an agnostic until the age of 25 when he came to faith in Jesus Christ. A short time later he came to understand and embrace the doctrines of grace. Jeff and his wife Andrea (Andy) have been married since 1996 and have four children: Walker, Nate, Drew, and Shelby. The Reddings are thankful to be a part of Walton Community Church and love Georgia, especially the beauty of springtime and fall (which provide glorious hints of the new earth to come). Jeff works full-time in the legal field in Atlanta. He enjoys reading and discussing books – some of his favorite authors are R.C. Sproul, Tim Keller, Chris Wright, Leif Enger, C.J. Sansom, Patrick O’Brian, Wendell Berry, and P.D. James. He also enjoys working in the yard, bird watching, lifting (light) weights, riding his bike (slowly and for short distances), playing Settlers of Catan, and losing to his kids in one-on-one basketball.

    Greg Gajownik

    Greg and his wife Debbie are core group members of Walton Community Church. They have been married for 43 years; he is the father of two daughters, Heather and Amy; two son-in-laws, Chris and Jonathan; and 5 grandchildren, Benjamin, Sam, Charlee, Ali and James. Greg was born in Chicago, Illinois but has lived in Georgia for most of his life. God brought salvation to Greg at the age of 18 while on a church youth choir trip and was baptized shortly thereafter. God used college friends to hold him accountable as a young, growing Christian while at Middle Tennessee State University and the University of Georgia. Greg is a retired high school band director as well as a retired AP Music Theory, Beginning Music Theory and Music Appreciation instructor for the Georgia Virtual School. He was a teacher for 43 years. Greg loves the Lord and serving as an elder and looks forward to the extra time he will now have, since he has recently retired, in serving the Lord at WCC. Soli Deo Gloria!

    Steve Myers

    Steve was blessed to be raised in a Christian home in the Decatur, GA area. The Lord graciously saved him and his brother at the same time as young boys at Parkwood Hills Baptist Church. Steve has been married to his beautiful bride Kristi for 34 yrs. They have 3 grown children and 4 grandchildren. They love serving in God’s church through music, teaching, hospitality and worshiping with fellow believers. Steve was ordained as a Deacon in 2004 at Rockdale Community Church where he has actively served for most of that time. When RCC determined to open a church plant in the Monroe area, Steve and Kristi felt God’s call to help and reach out to the community in which they have lived for 14 years. We are excited how God has prepared the way for Walton Community Church and look forward to ministering, serving and worshiping our great God with the people of Walton and surrounding counties as He leads.

    Chris Bragg

    Chris and his wife Heather live in Bogart with their three children, Benjamin, Sam, and Charlee. Heather is an elementary music instructor at Dacula Elementary School in Gwinnett County. Benjamin and Charlee keep them busy with theater through school and Oconee Youth School of Performance, and Sam is training in ninja and parkour at Oconee Ninja World. Chris was saved in 1992 through his youth group in Swainsboro, GA. God continued to grow him in his faith at Berry College where he met Heather. Chris has worked as an AV design engineer for 16 years and has had the opportunity to work with churches throughout the country to help develop technology systems that support their worship. In 2016, Chris and his family were called to the Athens area to continue that line of work with TSAV, a technology design and integration firm in the commercial industry. Since that move, they have been praying for God to open an opportunity to worship in the area. Through the past 25 years Chris has been blessed to have the opportunity to lead worship in many different church environments including church plants, established churches, and missionary churches overseas. Chris and Heather are grateful and excited for the opportunity to continue leading in worship now in Walton County – a community close to home.

Common Questions
When do you meet?

Every Sunday morning at 9:00 a.m. Please note: We are currently holding services outside due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We heartily encourage any visitors to join us, and ask that you bring your own lawn chairs (or blanket even!) as we spread out in keeping with social distancing guidelines. We would love to have you join us!

What should I expect?

Our services will typically last an hour and a half and will feature songs of worship, public Scripture reading, corporate prayer, biblical preaching, and the receiving of the Lord’s Supper (or Communion). Although our congregation is on the younger side, we hold to the historic beliefs of the Protestant Reformation and our services are probably considered more traditional/ancient/historic (e.g., we often read out loud the Lord’s Prayer and the Apostles’ Creed, and we often sing the Doxology or the Gloria Patri). After service, please consider staying a few minutes for complimentary coffee so we can get to know you.

Will I be singled out?

Uh, no. Never. We will never ask visitors to stand and be recognized, come to the front, give a testimony, etc. We are a friendly church, so folks will greet you and want to talk with you. But we know how hard it is visiting a new church, and we don’t want to add to the difficulty by singling you out.

Do I have to bring a Bible?

If you have a Bible, feel free to bring it. But if you do not have a Bible, please don’t let that stop you from attending our worship service. And when you come, we would love to give you a Bible to take home.

If I’m not a Christian, will I be welcomed?

Absolutely. We would be privileged if you joined us, regardless if you are a Christian, a skeptic, or exploring Christianity. Many of us (including the teachers/ preachers) did not grow up in the church, were skeptics, or came to faith later in life. You will absolutely be welcomed at WCC. Also, because learning about something new takes time, we would encourage you to return each week and continue exploring. (We know this is asking a lot, but we hope you’ll take us up on our invitation.)

Does WCC belong to any church denomination?

We do not. We are an independent, elder-led, Reformed Baptist church that subscribes to the 1689 Confession of Faith. However, we do pray for other churches in the community every Sunday in our corporate prayer. We do not believe that WCC is the only church in the Walton Community that is serving Jesus!

What is your address?

110 Mears Street, Monroe, GA 30655. Our mailing address is 146 Highway 138, #308, Monroe, GA 30655.
