Serving Christ With Open Minds, Open Hearts, and Open Hands
Responding to God's call to be a faithful people in central Lake County...
We are a family church. All ages come together to worship, learn, and serve Christ, respectful of diverse viewpoints and inclusive in culture.
We are a joyful congregation. Rooted in scripture and inspired by energetic, musically diverse, relevant worship, WPC enjoys being together and working together to serve our congregation and community.
We are connected through our missions. WPC is faithful to long-time ministries and says "yes" to new ways to serve God offering hope and stability to a world in need.

Easter is more than just one Sunday. For centuries, the church has celebrated the season of Eastertide, which consists of 50 days and seven Sundays, including Easter Day, and ending with the Day of Pentecost. At WPC, during the seven Sundays of Eastertide we hear the stories of Jesus’ appearances following his resurrection. We experience the astonishment and joy that his followers felt when he appeared among them to show them the reality of his new life and to teach them how to live as followers of a resurrected Lord.
