Welcome to Wendell Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)!
We are now gathering online and in person and we will continue to Love one another! We will welcome guests who will share the Love of Christ with us! We will see how the Spirit of Christ teaches us to be the Church in these times. Join this Great Adventure of Love we are on!
In addition to worship, we will share a time of devotion and encouragement each Wednesday at 7:30 AM. You can join us by entering our Zoom Meeting ID 9193656557 or on YouTube Live. There are also video recordings available here.
Learning to be together in the digital world can be challenging for those who are new to it. We encourage you to be patient with yourself and others as we learn. Humans have made long and dangerous journeys to be with those they love. We have the Spirit of Christ in us and we love each other. Thank you for all that you do to share the Love of Christ!
Sunday Worship Now Live on YouTube!
We are now streaming Sunday Services and Wednesday Devotions on YouTube Live. Zoom will be available as audio-only for dial-in users, and we will no longer use Facebook Live. Please contact the technology team for any questions or assistance in accessing our YouTube channel.
You can also join us on Zoom (audio only), or Listen in the church parking lot on FM 91.1 or YouTube Live, or later here on our website.
113th Homecoming Sunday, October 1st
Invite friends and family and bring a covered dish for the fellowship lunch in the Fellowship Hall after Morning Worship. Note: There will be no First Sunday 10:30 AM Fellowship on October 1st due to folks getting ready for the Homecoming Fellowship after Morning Worship.
Sunday, October 1st is our church’s 113th Homecoming. The P&G Committee plans on getting the church spiffed up the next few Saturday mornings. Any help from others will be appreciated. Contact Glenn Harris if you can help.
Some things we need to accomplish are:
1. Flower beds need de-weeding / cleaned up
2. The gazebo needs power washing
3. A few bushes need trimming up / shaped up
4. Water spots in Fellowship Hall and kitchen ceilings need repairing / painting
5. Pickup dead limbs
Hospitality – First Sundays at 10:30 A.M.
Join us for hospitality and fellowship on the first Sunday of each month at 10:30 A.M. in the Fellowship Hall! Coffee and other beverages will be available as well as food items like doughnuts and muffins. All are welcome! Be a friend, bring a friend!
Your Contribution is Needed and Welcomed!
As many churches today are experiencing, our congregational giving is down from previous years. The summertime is especially tough with attendance sporadic as folks take vacations. The current economy and higher costs of everything have been affecting us all, too.
We have had to pull funds from our savings account several times now to meet our current obligations. So that everyone understands, we may have an approved budget, but if the donations don’t match the spending, we do NOT spend money in categories that are not critical. For example, insurance, electricity, water, utilities, and salaries must be paid. Funds for the Pastor’s Education/Workshops, Children’s ministry items, and community assistance(such as helping others with bills, etc.), have not been used due to lack of funds for such items. All of this money is called the “general operating budget.”
We have additional funds in a Building/Facilities fund that cannot be spent on general operating expenses. This would pay for items like the new air conditioner, or new items for the church facility.
Most of the activities this year(food activities especially) have been funded by members/participants bringing items to share. The budget is closely monitored by Thresa and Glenn and I sincerely appreciate their combined effort to keep things in check.
We are hoping with this information/explanation you’ll understand our request for your prayerful consideration for your family giving to WCC for the remainder of 2023.
