O Come Let Us Adore Him

Advent is a season filled with expectation – a time to remember the hope, peace, joy, and love brought to the world through Jesus. 

But the Christmas season can often feel so rushed that it’s over before we really have a chance to remember what it is supposed to be about. 

So, to help pause and prepare, join us for O Come Let Us Adore Him, a special advent-themed night of carols and encouragement on Wednesday, December 1, at 7 pm.

*Limited childcare is available for ages 0-3 years old. Please register below.

CARE FUND 2021
through December 31, 2021

CARE FUND 2021

Let’s join together as a church to make a difference in our community and world. Let’s help replace fear and pain from those hurting with a little more love and peace that is much needed this season by serving others the way Jesus did.

WCC Care Fund

Since 2006 we’ve received a special, above-and-beyond, year-end offering that has raised over $3 million dollars (see PDF) to help our community, those hurting, and our missions partners.

This year’s Care Fund offering will focus on three key areas:

  • Hardship – temporary help for those with physical, financial, emotional, social, and spiritual needs. 
  • Addiction and Housing Partnership – we’re committed to providing financial assistance and developing partnerships in the community to assist with those struggling with addiction and connect them to treatment resources. We are partnering with community agencies to assist with helping those in need of housing. 
  • Missions – we are committed to reaching our community and world for Jesus Christ through our ministries partners and missions. Where the Gospel is planted, love and peace can bloom to change the world.

Please prayerfully consider giving to this special, year-end offering through the WCC App, online, via mail (send to WCC Care Fund, 1855 S County Farm Road, Warsaw, Indiana 46580), or by using a Care Fund envelope (available at the Info Center). You can give now through the end of the year (giving must be received by December 31, 2020).

For questions about the WCC Care Fund, contact: Matt Moyer, (574) 268-0188 x267.

 



Life On Mission Challenges
November: Know Your Story

Life on Mission Challenges

To share the hope of the Gospel with those we interact with, we need to be able to articulate clearly what Jesus has done for each of us, and our own personal story of transformation. Writing it out and practicing it with people who we trust will be beneficial for when the Holy Spirit prompts us to share.

  • Week 1: (Life on Mission Intro Video) Let’s exercise those outreach muscles as we share the hope of the Gospel wherever we live, work, and play. 
     
  • Week 2: (November Know Your Story Video) Use the instructions and resources at https://warsaw.cc/mystory to write out your story.
     
  • Week 3: Start verbally articulating your own story. Have both a shortened version to briefly introduce your faith and a full version for lengthier conversation opportunities. 
     
  • Week 4: Set up a time with a trusted friend to practice sharing your story.

WCC Bible Reading Plan - 3rd Quarter
the week of September 19-December 12

WCC Bible Reading Plan 
 
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. 


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.

DEVOTIONALS
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.

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
