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.
