Help Needed 

Our MIR family will be limited in what they can bring home and travel with, and has asked if the church body could help with some of the needs for their 2 young children.

  • New (or gently used) girls’ clothing: size 5, 6, and 7 (summer and fall)

  • Small bikes with training wheels

  • Bike helmets

  • A 3-wheeled scooter

  • Games & puzzles for 4-6 year old children

  • Target gift cards

Please drop off any donations to the WEPC Church Office.  Questions: AmyCaroline Wilks

Cross-Cultural Film Festival  

WED, June 30 /  7-8:30 PM / Fellowship Hall

"You bring some strange things to our ears. We wish to know therefore what these things mean.” -Acts 17:20

How would you communicate the Gospel to someone you would never see in person? Who lives in a radically different culture? Who would be an outcast if they took your message seriously?

When you can't be face to face, presenting the Good News of Jesus can be done through storytelling via film. Many stories open doors to conversations which lead to discipleship.

Join us for a Cross-Cultural Film Festival to view and discuss original short films that have been distributed through social media in closed countries to share the heart of the Gospel. Led by WEPC's Missionaries in Residence.


Growing in Cross-Cultural Friendships

SUN, July 18 / 12-1 PM / Fellowship Hall

"You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know." -John 4:22

It's challenging to build relationships across cultures. Yet in many ways, it is at the heart of the church following Jesus in His mission to the world. Join us for a discussion of how you might grow in friendship and take loving risks for the sake of the Gospel. Led by WEPC's Missionaries in Residence.


Short Term Missions

In light of the 2020 global pandemic, WEPC is still pursuing spring/summer 2021 short-term teams while continuing to wisely monitor the progression and impact of COVID-19 on international travel. We continue to pray for God's advancing Kingdom and seek input from agencies and professionals qualified to speak into decisions surrounding the pandemic.

Visit our Short Term Missions page to learn about upcoming opportunities.
