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.

On July 17, WPC overwhelmingly elected Rev. Dr. Erik Holm to lead our church into God’s future. Pastor Erik will begin his service to Wildwood Presbyterian on Tuesday, September 6 and his first Sunday in the pulpit will be September 11. Pastor Erik received his Bachelor of Arts from Whitworth University, Master of Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary and Doctorate of Ministry from Fuller Theological Seminary. He has served as a Youth Director and Associate Pastor (2001 - present) in other Presbyterian churches. He has extensive mission experience and a true love of youth ministry. He is a spiritually mature, caring, and energetic individual who is excited about WPC’s vision and looks forward to helping our congregation grow, evolve, and thrive. He and his family are eager to become involved members of our church family and we look forward to welcoming him and his family to WPC and our community!
