IMPORTANT UPDATE 5/20/22
We are now aware of 4 people (from 2 different families) who have tested positive for COVID. They all were in worship last Sunday, and some of them were present at meetings within the building during the week. Rev. Leslie had exposure as well, so she is quarantining herself (although she is feeling fine so far).
We are taking a cautious approach and therefore:
There will be no in person worship on Sun, May 22. A recording of last week's service will be available online Sunday morning. And we will still have virtual coffee hour at 11:45am.
The baby shower for Music Director Alicia Phelps is postponed until Sun, Jun 5.
The Church Council meeting will be via Zoom on Monday at 6:30pm. Details to be sent via email.
We are looking into live streaming on YouTube this summer. To help with that effort, we need to have at least 50 subscribers to our YouTube channel. If you have not already, please consider going to our YouTube channel and clicking the "subscribe" button. There is no cost, but you will need a Google/Gmail account to sign in & subscribe. Thanks!
Donations for Ukrainian relief
There are many ways to donate money to the relief of Ukraine. Here are just a couple of suggestions through the United Church of Christ, our national denomination:
Ukraine Emergency Appeal: Use this link to get info on donating. From their website: Gifts made to UCC Ukraine Relief Fund will provide shelter, food, and other care to war refugees and internally displaced people. It also will help refugees and asylum seekers from African, Middle Eastern and other countries who had sought refugee in Ukraine and now are twice displaced, as well as citizens of more than 125 other countries living in Ukraine.
Our annual One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS) collection: We collect annually for this mission that provides money, in part, for disaster relief & refugees -- including Ukraine. We will be dedicating our OGHS gifts on March 27, but you can donate anytime here online! From the UCC website: This Lenten Offering supports the disaster, refugee, and development ministries of the United Church of Christ within Wider Church Ministries.

Pledge Your Support
Both members and non-members can make a pledge to the church, which is a statement of how much you anticipate giving to the church over the course of the year.
A pledge is a commitment to give, and the church uses these pledges to plan and make its budget. At the same time we recognize that situations change and that people may need to adjust their pledge during the year.
Of course, you can give without making a pledge!
Are you looking for a place to belong, a place where you are loved and accepted for who you are?
Do you need someone to talk to without judgment, someone who will walk with you as you seek to understand God’s purpose for your life?
Do you want a safe place to worship and serve others?
You are welcome here at WWCC!
The mission of this church is to love God and love one another in our congregation, community, and world, through worship, serving, and mission. We seek to build a community of faith and service where all are welcomed, as Jesus Christ welcomed all. We affirm each person as a child of God, and we embrace and encourage our common values as well as our unique differences.
Open & Affirming Statement
We invite everyone to full membership and participation in the life, leadership, ministry, and mission of this church. We welcome all people regardless of background, circumstance, race, ethnicity, family configuration, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, physical or mental ability, and age.
