COVID-19 UPDATE: We’re gathering again in-person. However, some ministry activities will remain online until further notice. Be sure to read all the details about any guidelines on our Church Updates page, and anything specific to events on our Upcoming Events descriptions. If you have any questions, please feel free to touch base with the appropriate ministry contact.
We offer numerous events to help you take a next step in your spiritual journey, grow in your faith, or connect with others.
Since Governor Holcomb released the Back on Track Indiana guidelines, we have spent significant time in prayer and preparation, to develop our Back in the Building plan to resume in-person services. To allow for distancing guidelines, seating capacity has been reduced. If you’d like to join us for in-person services on Sunday, please review our Back in the Building plan guidelines. We look forward to seeing you!

Discovering WCC gives you an overview of our vision and mission, including our beliefs and values. Discovering My Design is focused on understanding how God has gifted you and for what purposes.

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 monthly to hear from, encourage, and pray for our missions partners. We meet on the third Thursday each month at 7pm, upper level.
Please join us! If you choose to join us via Zoom, just click on the link below. If you can join us in-person, you’ll be glad you did. Either way, we hope to see you Thursday!

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. That’s why we’re launching a new churchwide Bible reading plan. We’ll spend a year reading the New Testament together.
5 Minutes a Day, 5 Days a Week
Committing five minutes a day, five days a week to our new churchwide Bible reading plan will allow us to read the New Testament, all 260 chapters, in one year. We’ll have five chapters to read each week, with two built-in free days if you’ve gotten off track. Note: if you do get off track, just jump back in where we are. You can always go back and catch up when you have extra time. This plan spreads out the Gospels so we read those throughout the year, weaving the story of Jesus within our whole year. The rest of the New Testament books are read in order.
Bible Reading Plan Devotions: Twice a month, we’ll publish devotionals that correspond with what we’re reading in our yearly Bible Plan. These devotionals will be written from a variety of people participating in this churchwide reading plan. Through these devotionals, we will be encouraged and challenged as we journey through God’s Word together. Making the Connection: Our weekly sermon recap devotions will continue to be produced, so you can dig further into the Sunday sermon at your own pace throughout your week. Both of these devotionals will be published on the WCC blog and regularly posted on social media.
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
