return by July 25
We offer numerous events to help you take a next step in your spiritual journey, grow in your faith, or connect with others.
Last year we had the opportunity to participate with the United Way’s Ready to Go Bag project. As a Church, we filled 300 bags with school supplies that went out to elementary aged students involved in summer school...
This year, we are again joining with others in our community to fill the United Way’s Ready to Go Bags with school supplies for the students in our elementary schools that need them the most. This is a tangible way the Church can care for our community and meet needs and develop relationships with those in our local school system.
Want to be involved this year? Join us by:
- Grabbing a bag (or multiple bags!) at WCC to take and fill on your own time and return it to the church by July 25.
- Donating money towards supplies to fill bags at Packing Party. This can be done online, at the church, by mailing in (1855 S County Farm Rd, Warsaw, IN 46582), or through the app. When donating online and the app use the Drop Down “United Way Ready To Go Bags" or by check and write in the memo line "Ready To Go Bags."
- Participating in at the Packing Party Sunday, July 25, 10:45-11:15am at the church.
- Being part of a School Team (Eisenhower or Claypool) for long-term impact.
Once you decide how you are planning on participating, please fill out this quick form and let us know how you are getting involved. It helps us with planning.

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
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 will meet Thursday, August 19, 7pm.
