Women’s Bible Study: The Names of God
Wednesdays, 7-8:30pm
January 20, February 3, 17, and March 3

Women’s Bible Study: The Names of God 

In Scripture, the names of God are like portraits and promises, standing for something specific regarding His attributes. These names should impact our faith, and ultimately our lives. Join us online (via Zoom) or in-person every other Wednesday, from January 20-March 3, 7pm for The Names of God. In this women’s Bible study, we’ll look at God’s names, where and when they first occurred in the Bible, how that name reflects God’s character, and what that means for us. Each week will stand alone, starting with large group teaching followed by small group discussion, so sign up and join us when you can, or catch up later.

WCC Bible Reading Plan & Devotions
The New Testament in One Year

WCC Bible Reading Plan & Devotions
 
The primary purpose of reading the Bible is not to know the Bible, but to know God.
― James Merritt

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.

Devotionals
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



Operation Esperanza
Honduras Hurricane Relief

Operation Esperanza: Honduras Hurricane Relief

Honduras has been devastated in back-to-back weeks by Hurricane Eta and Hurricane Iota, causing severe flooding all over the country – including villages served by our partners Humanity & Hope United Foundation and World Compassion Network. A humanitarian crisis is unfolding, as mass evacuations have been necessary in many areas where H&H and WCN staff and volunteers have been working tirelessly to rescue and care for entire communities. They need food, water, medical care, and a safe and dry place to sleep.

That’s where we all come in… God is working despite the life-threatening hardships. People gather in makeshift shelters and they are banding together to help the growing number of evacuees.

Operation Esperanza is a collaborative, multi-phase, long-term response to bring hope to the people of the Sula Valley in Honduras. Our goal through our partners is to not only help people survive, but recover, rebuild, and thrive in the future. Our partners have already invested years in multiple communities, serving the Honduran people and we know God wants to see that continue.

Let’s go through this storm together with our Honduran brothers and sisters, as we lift them up in prayer, and provide ways to lighten their burden!

Three Ways You Can Join Operation Esperanza:

 

PRAY

2020 has been a challenging year in so many ways to say the least, but we know God is not surprised. Nor is He worried. In fact, we serve the One that has an endless supply of resources, mercy, hope, and love. Let’s start with Him for guidance, wisdom, and help.

  • Pray for the people in and around El Progreso, that they may escape the rising floodwaters.
  • Pray for people living at the shelters, that they may experience God’s peace and love through His Word, and the staff and volunteers who care for them.
  • Pray for H&H and WCN staff, as they join with emergency personnel, that they all will have wisdom and endurance, and that they will model God’s love and share His hope.

 

GIVE

Right now, the most urgent needs are for emergency relief and survival supplies. This is the heart of the first phase of relief and recovery. Through cooperation with our partners, we’ve already been able to help open and run six shelters, where over 400 individuals are being housed and fed. But the need is growing.

You can give online or through the WCC app. Just choose Operation Esperanza from the fund list.
