Serving and Welcoming

Empowered by the Holy Spirit, the WPC Christian Outreach Ministry seeks to witness the work of God in the world, so that all are nourished in body, mind, and soul. We celebrate every person's unique gifts to serve the children of God throughout the world in the name of Jesus Christ. We are made up of eight teams with more than seventy team members, and hundreds of volunteers who are engaged in our Outreach ministries.

Our Mission TEAMS

Campus Ministry

This team supports the UKirk College Fellowship program and the activities related to campus ministries. It provides students a safe and caring spiritual home for their continual growth as adults through worship and service within our congregation and beyond.

Earth Care

Because we have been entrusted to care for God's creation, the team conducts activities to clean and protect our earth and educates our members on how to integrate sustainable environmental practices individually and as a church body. WPC is an Earth Care congregation.

Global Missions

WPC has covenant partnerships with churches in the Congo and Guatemala. We have helped build a church and school in Chajul, Guatemala. We support missionaries in Congo, Guatemala, and the Middle East.

Hunger and Homeless

This team serves the poor and homeless in our community by conducting hands-on work in home construction, food preparations and delivery, collecting and delivering dry goods to food pantries, and runs the hypothermia shelter at WPC. The team also provides funding to 18 local organizations who serve our neighbors. WPC is a Hunger Action Congregation.

Kirk Krafters

This group of talented and dedicated volunteers provides comfort through the giving of prayer shawls and other handmade items. They have provided knitted hats for FISH, baby blankets for Avalon, and blankets for babies and prayer shawls for our Covenant church in Chajul, Guatemala.

Prison Ministry

Twice a year, teams of male volunteers are formed, trained and participate in a highly structured 4-day workshop, sharing Christ's transforming love and forgiveness with prison residents and their families. Prayer groups of prisoners form with monthly follow up meetings.

Refugee Resettlement

In 2017, WPC sponsored a refugee family of four from Afghanistan. The team worked tirelessly to help the family acclimate to life in the United States. Members found lodging, acquired furniture, helped with English lessons, finding jobs, and registering the children for schools. In 2020, WPC provided funding so wife and mom Shabnam could take on-line classes to become a Certified Makeup Artist.

Special Offerings

PCUSA has two special offering drives each year, organized by this team. One Great Hour of Sharing supports Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, Hunger Program and Self-Development of People. Joy Gift supports church workers in need and provides financial assistance to Presbyterian racial and ethnic colleges.
