We are glad you are interested in the WEPC's Neighborhood Outreach Ministries!
Our vision is to be loving, merciful, Christ-centered neighbors desiring to see neighborhood families transformed and renewed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Micah 6:8; Romans 1:16). We do this through our mission, which is to glorify God by walking alongside our neighbors as we equip, serve, and preach Christ and fellowship together.
Healing Conversations Training
Sundays, October 23, 30 and November 6, 13
12:15 - 1:45 PM (light lunch provided)
For anyone interested in exploring how to talk with refugees or others who have been through trauma. We will use a 4-session curriculum from Multiplying Hope which pursues Kingdom healing through the principles of community, faith and purpose. We will discuss trauma, listening skills, healing, and stories from Job and Elijah. All are welcome for this interactive training. Contact: Lori Bowman
URGENT need for volunteers for ESL Classes!
As the number of walk-in registrants grows, we are in great need of volunteers to help with our ESL program. We are especially in need of men. Join us as we work with the nations that God brings to our building every week. ESL is a great opportunity to develop relationships with people from all over the world: help them learn about our culture, gain language skills, and share the Gospel with them! Visit our ESL page for dates and other information. Contact: Heather Glissman
