The goal of WEPC's Mercy Ministry is to bring glory to God through addressing the physical and worldly needs of those in the WEPC family and the surrounding community in a biblically sound, compassionate, wise, and effective manner.
WEPC's Deacons and Deacon Assistants lead this ministry and meet regularly with those in need, both in our congregation and in our wider community, to listen and to pray with and for them. Deacons and Deacon Assistants also connect them to other WEPC ministries, such as the Community ESL School and In Jesus' Name Food Pantry, and offer assistance with budgeting, navigating health care, and beginning the citizenship process, among many other things based on individuals' needs and WEPC's ability to help. When deemed appropriate, Deacons and Deacon Assistants are also able to offer short-term financial assistance through WEPC's Mercy Fund.
If you would like to support the work of the Mercy Ministry, you may give financially to the Mercy Fund, donate or volunteer with the Food Pantry, and learn more about becoming a Deacon Assistant.
