Happenings

Here are some of the things that happen at WWCC.


Bean Suppers

2nd Saturday of the month (Sep to May) @ 5:00pm and 6:00pm * Cost $8 adults and $3 children under 12

The monthly bean supper is a great place for fellowship! Whether you come just to eat or to volunteer, you'll leave fulfilled.


Chancel Choir

Thursdays @ 7:00pm

The Chancel Choir is our adult choir that sings regularly during worship. Rehearsals are on Thursday evenings from 7-8:30pm and then again on Sunday mornings at 9:30am, prior to worship. You don't have to be a great singer ... you don't have to read music ... but a sense of humor helps!

Celebration Choir

The Celebration Choir is our children's choir that sings periodically throughout the year. Rehearsals are on Sunday mornings at 10am (after Sunday School).

Thursday Community Meals

Thursdays Sep to May @ 12pm * Cost $5

Each Thursday we host a meal for the whole community.

Wild & Wacky Book Group

Most Thursdays @ 1:00pm

The book group is an informal group who gather to discuss what they have been reading. They meet on Thursday afternoons at 1:00pm (after the Thursday community meal). Anyone is welcome to join.

Christmas Day Dinner

December 25

We host a free community Christmas Day dinner each year. Everyone is invited to come and share a meal and fellowship.

Visitation

The visitation program is coordinated by the Deacons. We visit with our members & friends who are unable to attend worship due to illness or disability ... whether in the hospital or at home. When we celebrate communion in worship each month, additional bread and juice are consecrated that we then share on our visits.

Friends Club

4th Thursday of the month (Sep to May) @ 5:30pm * Cost $5.00

The Friends Club meets on the fourth Thursday of the months Sep, Oct, Dec, Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, and May. A very short business meeting follows the meal, and most meetings have a guest speaker. It is not just for people from our church; many of our group come from other churches, and we like to have members bring guests. A sign-up sheet is located in the church prior to the meeting night. We try to raise money throughout the year by putting on public suppers, and the monies are used for many different projects in the church.

Family Promise

We are a host church for Greater Portland Family Promise, partnering with our support church Trinity Lutheran. Four weeks a year we host families who are facing homelessness -- providing a place to sleep, meals, and companionship.


Movies That Matter

Scheduled at various times

Periodically we will have a movie night where we gather to watch a movie and then discuss it afterwards. We provide snacks, and people bring a bag lunch and maybe something to share. The choice of movie varies ... maybe a drama ... maybe a documentary ... but usually something to provoke discussion. (But sometimes just for fun!)

Festival of Trees

Early December

We host an annual Festival of Trees which invites local businesses and organizations to join together in decorating themed Christmas trees. During the week of the Festival, the trees are on display for the public to enjoy. There are special events, meals, plus an ongoing Maine Garden Society Model Train display and collection of creches.
