Community: More Than a Middle Name
September 15, 22, 29
When we asked hundreds of WCC church-goers “Why does WCC matter to you?” the overwhelmingly largest response came in a single word: COMMUNITY. We will spend the first three weeks of our new program year inspecting and celebrating what it means to be a “Community”. Embracing this complex word as more than just our middle name, we will look at what it means to us as a church, as well as what it means in the broader context of our neighborhood, nation, and world. Reflecting on the latest research and writings, we’ll reflect on our stated “marks of community”: Grace, Growth, and Generosity.
Toys Are Us: Life Lessons from Toy Story
October 6, 13, 20, 27
As the latest installment of the Toy Story film series continues to delight movie-goers around the world, we will step back and reflect on each of the four films individually to highlight the life lessons and gospel-parallels contained therein. Don’t be fooled by the animated, child-oriented storylines— these films contain themes that speak to the heart and soul of every adult. The characters and plots will serve as a mirror to our own lives and invite reflection on gospel themes such as: insecurity, friendship, fear, belonging, change, purpose, vocation… and so much more. Upon reflection, we’ll see that Toys Are Us.
