We worship the Lord together at 10:00 a.m.
One of the distinguishing marks of WCC is that our times of worship are truly congregational. During a typical Sunday morning service, the congregation participates in worship through responsive readings, congregational singing, and the corporate reading of scripture passages or historic statements of faith, such as the Apostles’ Creed. By reading truth together and singing truth together, we seek to have the word of Christ dwell in us richly.
Worship with us in the Light
Our worship has God at the center of things and this guides everything that we do during our worship service. Each part below expands to reveal something wonderful about our God and Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.
We worship God by singing “psalms and hymns and spiritual songs with thankfulness in our hearts” (Colossians 3:16), and our songs are a mix of old and new music. One of the great blessings of congregational singing at WCC is hearing one another sing with loud voices and joyful hearts.
One of our church leaders, on behalf of the congregation, will lead us as we bring our prayers of adoration, confession, thanksgiving, and supplication to our gracious Lord who hears us. At the conclusion of our corporate prayer, we will often pray the Lord’s Prayer together as a congregation.
Preaching at WCC is exegetical, which means that we seek to explain the meaning of a biblical text. Sermons are usually between 35 to 45 minutes long. Our goal in preaching and hearing is to understand and apply the Word of God to our daily lives. The gospel of Jesus Christ is what drives our preaching.
After the sermon, we partake of the Lord’s Supper. This is a time of reflection, self-examination, and communion with our Savior. The Lord’s table is a “family meal” that is open to all Christians. We joyfully observe the Lord’s Supper every Sunday morning.
We end corporate worship around 11:30 a.m. with singing and a benediction. Although the formal time of our meeting is over at this point, one of the characteristics of WCC is that many folks stay and enjoy speaking with one another long after the worship service is over.
