The Way of the Cross
Wednesday, April 10, 7-8:15pm
WCC Main Campus

The Way of the Cross

As Easter approaches, we want to help people prepare for the celebration of Christ’s resurrection by providing an opportunity to deeply reflect on His commitment, devotion, and death. Through readings, prayer, worship, and communion we’ll examine the traditional stations of the cross as a way to contemplate the magnitude of Christ’s love for mankind and His work on our behalf. Our hope and prayer is that this evening will renew in you an overwhelming love and gratitude towards the risen Savior on Easter and beyond. Join us Wednesday, April 10, 7-8:15pm at the WCC Main Campus as we pause to prepare our hearts for Easter through The Way of the Cross.

NOTE: Due to the nature of the content and the extended times of quiet reflection, please know this will not be an engaging, kid-friendly service. Therefore, limited childcare is available for infants through 6th grade by registering online or at the Info Center.

Men’s Bible Study – Elevate
Monday nights, 7-8:30pm
April 15, 22, 29 and May 6, 13, 2019
WCC Main Campus

Men’s Bible Study – Elevate

Guys (18 and over), let’s face it, we struggle to have meaningful connections and don’t always know what to do when it comes to growing as a follower of Jesus. Elevate was designed with these needs in mind. We want to help you develop intentional relationships with the purpose of encouraging each other to become the men God created us to be. Most guys want to have some good friendships they can count on and find their true meaning and purpose in life. For this 5-week study, we will focus on practical ways to live for Christ. Yet, these will each be stand-alone studies, so you can attend whenever you’re available.

Women’s Bible Study: Into the Deep
Wednesday mornings, 9:15-11:15am
Wednesday evenings, 6:30-8:30pm
April 17 – May 22, WCC Main Campus

Women’s Bible Study: Into The Deep

Join us on Wednesday mornings or evenings for our spring Women’s Bible Study. Sessions will include live teaching, group discussion, and time for practice and reflection. Cost is $10.

About the study: Fuller, faster, and endless – we have access to more than at any point in history. And yet our lives are racing by, while we run on empty in the midst of so much. So why the feeling that something is missing? Why the exhaustion? Are we too busy living in the shallows? This study is designed to help you quench that thirst for something more meaningful, as you rediscover how the habits and practices of our faith can provide deeper connection with each other, and a stronger relationship with our living God. Together, let’s journey Into the Deep.

Missions Night
Meeting monthly 3rd Thursdays

Missions Night

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 3rd Thursday from 7-8:30pm at the Main Campus.

Interface Missions Experience
June 8 – July 15, 2019
Papua New Guinea

Interface Missions Experience

Much more than a typical, short-term mission trip, Interface is a 6-week experience in cross-cultural church planting in Papua New Guinea. Interface is for college students, married couples, singles, pastors, or anyone over 18, eager to know more about missions. It is a chance to see firsthand what it takes to plant a church among people who have no concept of the God of the Bible, learn from missionaries on the field, and spend time with tribal people.

WCC takes seriously Jesus’ command to “go, and make disciples of all nations.” We pray that He will allow us to send someone to bring His Word to a least-reached people group once again. Therefore, we will substantially support someone with a genuine interest in taking the Interface course to explore entering the mission field. To ask further questions and find out more about Interface, join us at our March Missions Night, on Thursday, March 21, 7pm at the Main Campus. Drew Scholl will share about his upcoming role in the Interface Missions Experience and how it fits into WCC’s Missions strategy. You learn even more about the Interface Missions Experience on the Ethnos 360 website.
