Special Missions Night
Special Missions Night
Join us for the Warsaw premiere of “Ends of the Earth” on Thursday, October 21, 7pm at Warsaw Community Church. Ticket donations at the door.
This documentary explores stories of faith, calling, and adventure by weaving together the true stories of MAF pilots — past and present — who strive with other missionaries, churches, and organizations to take the gospel to the most isolated and inaccessible places on earth.
The very bullseye of WCC’s target for missions is to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth! Here is an opportunity to see how aviation is vital to sharing God’s Good News to the least-reached peoples of the world.
Your ticket donations will benefit WCC Missions and Mission Aviation Fellowship

To actively serve the neglected and orphaned children in Haiti by helping end the cycle of poverty and hopelessness by providing shelter, education, life skills, food and a caring, loving environment.
To shine the light of salvation by loving god, loving others, following Jesus and by living in the spirit.
We are also passionate in assisting others in our community in the states pursue their call to serve God's Kingdom. When the Spirit of God compels "faith to action" after a mission trip or a desire is placed on one's heart to do something for the Kingdom, we want to enable and empower that desire to become reality.
Since his 2008 major label debut, Matt Maher has become a staple in the artistic and songwriting community. A nine time-GRAMMY® nominee and three time-GMA Dove Award winner, he has garnered multiple radio successes, writing and recording songs such as his Top 5 CCLI song “Lord, I Need You” and the chart-topping radio single “Because He Lives (Amen).” Along with other hits such as “Hold Us Together,” “Christ Is Risen,” “All The People Said Amen,” and “Your Grace Is Enough,” Maher has written or co-written five No. 1 radio singles.
Penning numerous songs recorded by Chris Tomlin, Crowder, Third Day, Jeremy Camp, Matt Redman, Hillsong, Casting Crowns, Meredith Andrews, Jesus Culture, Jars of Clay, and Passion, he’s had multiple titles on the CCLI chart’s Top 500 list. With career album sales of more than 550,000 units to date, Maher was recently awarded his first RIAA Platinum certification for his popular single “Lord, I Need You.” He’s released nine studio albums, including his 2017 GRAMMY-nominated album Echoes. He also released his first Christmas album and children’s book, both titled The Advent of Christmas, during the 2018 holiday season.

Reading the Bible Together
When we spend time in God’s Word, we’re getting to know Him. We’re also maturing in our faith. Regularly spending time together with God in His Word is such a beautiful, life-giving thing. And just as it benefits us as individuals, when we gather together as the church to commit to spending time reading and studying the Bible, something special happens. We’re able to encourage one another and grow together.
5 Minutes a Day, 7 Days a Week
Commit around five minutes a day, seven days a week, to our church-wide Bible reading plan. We’ll have seven chapters to read each week – most weeks will include five chapters from one book and two Psalms. The goal of this plan is to consistently spend time in God’s Word. We’ll be reading various styles of books – gospels, epistles, history, poetry, prophecy, etc. Using this guide, you’ll easily be able to track your reading and follow along. And don’t worry if you get off track; you can just jump back in where we are. You can always go back and catch up when you have extra time.
Each week, devotionals will be published that correspond with what we’re reading. These devotionals will be from a variety of people participating in this church-wide reading plan. Through these devotionals, we will be encouraged and challenged as we journey through God’s Word together.
These devotionals will be in written or video form and can be found on our website.
Do you have questions about what you’re reading? We’d love to help! Rather than relying on the first thing you find on the internet, email us at email@example.com. We are more than happy to answer that nagging question you have, provide you with some clarity, or point you in the right direction for further study.
Up for more of a challenge?
Don’t just read the chapters, use the following questions to study them:
Observation: This is how to learn what a passage of scripture says. Questions to ask: Who? What? Where? When? Why? How? What does it say? What do I notice?
Interpretation: This is how to accurately interpret scripture and understand what it means in the right context. Questions to ask: What are the key themes or truths? What is the writer’s intended meaning? What is the context? What questions do I have?
Application: This is how to correctly apply the truth of the text to everyday life. Questions to ask: How do I apply it? What are the implications in my life? What does this mean for me
Are you new to WCC and interested in getting to know the church and those that attend better? Join us for Coffee and Connection, on the 2nd Sunday of the month, 9:30-11:15am for a casual meet and greet with an “open house” feel.

Each one of us is called to “missions.” God places us in specific places and situations so that we can draw others closer to Him. We join Him in His redemptive work by praying for and serving others. We give of our time, talents, and treasures. We intentionally build relationships with people so that they can get a glimpse of Him through us. Join us on the 3rd Thursday of the month at 7pm to hear from, encourage, and pray for our missions partners.

This fall we want to invite you to make Christian community an intentional part of your life. Come find a place where you can grow and get to know your church family better. Be inspired as you come together around God’s Word and share how He is working in the world around you.
Growth Groups at WCC exist to cultivate Christ-centered community where we can deepen our faith and be energized to share the hope we have in Him. Growth Groups are small groups of 8-12 people that meet in homes, at church, in coffee shops, and more throughout our area. They meet for 8-10 weeks at a time (each fall & winter) to focus more intentionally on building community and making disciples. There are groups available for everyone. You can expect to: spend time in prayer, dive deeper into the weekend’s messages, study God’s Word, enjoy great conversation, and just simply have fun together. Groups usually meet on a weekly basis at various times throughout the week.
Still want to be part of a Growth Group. Sign-up at MyWCC. All Groups launched the week of September 12 and end by November 21.
Holy Land Trip
Holy Land Trip
Have you ever wanted to travel to the Holy Land? Join us for this 10 day study tour through Israel from Monday, April 25 to Friday, May 6. We will travel the wilderness, Galilee, Jerusalem, and many more sites that are mentioned and/or significant in the Biblical narratives. We will walk the land that Moses, David and Jesus lived. It is powerful to stand in the ancient synagogues where Jesus taught or the beach where Peter was called. Most of us have gone our whole lives hearing and reading about Mount Moriah, the Sea of Galilee, or the ramparts of Jerusalem.
This is the opportunity to see and touch the places where our Messiah lived and died- the place where our hope was born. Seeing pictures is a miracle of living in the time we do, but it doesn’t hold a candle to feeling hot sun and wind-whipped dust of the Judean Wilderness or tasting the cool breeze that blows off of the Sea of Galilee in the evening. After walking in the Holy Land you will forever see and experience the places again as you read God’s story in scripture.
Leading up to the trip there will be 3-5 classes briefly covering the history of the Old Testament. These will take place between January and early April, exact dates and times are yet to be determined. Cost is $4,490 for double occupancy or $5,690 for a single occupancy. $500 is needed to confirm registration. Early registration discount of $100 ends November 1. Absolute deadline for this trip is December 6. Second payment of $1,995 is due December 6. Final balance is due March 4. Space is limited. You must be 18 years of age or older. Do note, this trip will require you to daily walk 2-4 miles on rough trails and may be strenuous for those not used to comfortably walking that far. Due to restrictions with traveling, every participant will need proof of COVID-19 vaccination.
