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.

Wildwood Presbyterian Church excitedly announces its first WildWerks community service day! Church members and other volunteers will go out into the Wildwood community on Sunday, August 27, 2017 from 9am-1pm to help community members with yard projects, light home repairs, deep cleaning, or perhaps some painting. We will provide the labor, and residents provide the materials. Community members are asked to contact the church office with their needs by August 1. Someone will be back in contact with inquirers to see if WPC has the team to help. Be sure to mention WildWerks! If you are interested in volunteering on August 27 from 9am-1pm, stop in at the church office between 9am-4pm Monday-Friday or join worship on Sundays at 8 or 10 during the summer.
Do you ever wish you could see more of a movie than just a two minute clip? Would you like to dig deeper and think longer on some of the issues raised? Then you are going to love our sermon series in August: "Moving Pictures". Each week we will watch a clip or two from a recent film and then wrestle with the issue raised in the scene. As always, whatever the issue raised we hold it up to the truth of God's word to find out what the Holy Spirit has to share on the topic. This summer there is a theme that unites the film clips we'll watch and the Scripture we'll study: Reconciliation.
Our denomination made a significant move related to reconciliation just last year. In 2016 the PC(USA) added a new document to our book of Confessions: The Confession of Belhar. The document was created by the Dutch Reformed Church in Africa in 1984 as a response to the abuses of Apartheid in South Africa. The central theme of the confession is God’s call upon the church to work for reconciliation. As we explore the many facets of reconciliation in the "Moving Pictures" series I invite you to read the Confession of Belhar as an additional resource for your study. This link will take you to the PC(USA) website where you can download a copy of the Confession of Belhar to study on your own.
August 6 – Invictus: Ambassadors of reconciliation
August 13 – The Judge: Reconciling in our families
August 20 – Gran Torino: The work of reconciliation
During the week we learned that we are all Earthlings, and that God made us in God's own image. We learned about ourselves and how to treat each others. Click here to see the VBS page, which has a link to some pictures from our awesome VBS activities and summaries of our lessons.
