Reading the Bible Together
When we spend time in God’s Word, we’re getting to know Him. We’re also maturing in our faith. Regularly spending time together with God in His Word is such a beautiful, life-giving thing. And just as it benefits us as individuals, when we gather together as the church to commit to spending time reading and studying the Bible, something special happens. We’re able to encourage one another and grow together.
5 Minutes a Day, 7 Days a Week
Commit around five minutes a day, seven days a week, to our church-wide Bible reading plan. We’ll have seven chapters to read each week – most weeks will include five chapters from one book and two Psalms. The goal of this plan is to consistently spend time in God’s Word. We’ll be reading various styles of books – gospels, epistles, history, poetry, prophecy, etc. Using this guide, you’ll easily be able to track your reading and follow along. And don’t worry if you get off track; you can just jump back in where we are. You can always go back and catch up when you have extra time.
Each week, devotionals will be published that correspond with what we’re reading. These devotionals will be from a variety of people participating in this church-wide reading plan. Through these devotionals, we will be encouraged and challenged as we journey through God’s Word together.
These devotionals will be in written or video form and can be found on our website.
Do you have questions about what you’re reading? We’d love to help! Rather than relying on the first thing you find on the internet, email us at email@example.com. We are more than happy to answer that nagging question you have, provide you with some clarity, or point you in the right direction for further study.
Up for more of a challenge?
Don’t just read the chapters, use the following questions to study them:
Observation: This is how to learn what a passage of scripture says. Questions to ask: Who? What? Where? When? Why? How? What does it say? What do I notice?
Interpretation: This is how to accurately interpret scripture and understand what it means in the right context. Questions to ask: What are the key themes or truths? What is the writer’s intended meaning? What is the context? What questions do I have?
Application: This is how to correctly apply the truth of the text to everyday life. Questions to ask: How do I apply it? What are the implications in my life? What does this mean for me
Join WCC Missions October 1-3, 2021 for the Wayumi Retreat experience! This fun and fascinating weekend is all about the Great Commission — to “go and make disciples of all the nations (or people groups). It will open your eyes to what God is doing to reach the least-reached peoples with His Good News!
Come with us to the Wayumi campus in Pennsylvania by yourself, with a friend, your family, or your Growth Group. WCC considers this a mission trip. The registration fee and transportation are both free of charge — that’s how important we feel it is to for everyone in our church to understand this message!
- How God can use you and your gifts to be part of His story — here at home, or overseas.
- What missionaries experience as they teach unreached people groups.
- The major challenges of cross-cultural ministry — culture and language.
- All of the ministries involved in taking the Gospel to isolated people groups.
There are a limited number of spots left. Registration deadline for this Fall’s retreat is September 20th. We hope to see you there!

Each one of us is called to “missions.” God places us in specific places and situations so that we can draw others closer to Him. We join Him in His redemptive work by praying for and serving others. We give of our time, talents, and treasures. We intentionally build relationships with people so that they can get a glimpse of Him through us. Join us on the 3rd Thursday of the month at 7pm to hear from, encourage, and pray for our missions partners.

This fall we want to invite you to make Christian community an intentional part of your life. Come find a place where you can grow and get to know your church family better. Be inspired as you come together around God’s Word and share how He is working in the world around you.
Growth Groups at WCC exist to cultivate Christ-centered community where we can deepen our faith and be energized to share the hope we have in Him. Growth Groups are small groups of 8-12 people that meet in homes, at church, in coffee shops, and more throughout our area. They meet for 8-10 weeks at a time (each fall & winter) to focus more intentionally on building community and making disciples. There are groups available for everyone. You can expect to: spend time in prayer, dive deeper into the weekend’s messages, study God’s Word, enjoy great conversation, and just simply have fun together. Groups usually meet on a weekly basis at various times throughout the week.
Still want to be part of a Growth Group. Sign-up at MyWCC. All Groups launched the week of September 12 and end by November 21. If you have any questions, contact Nate Metler. Contact: Nate Metler, Associate Pastor of Discipleship, (574) 268-0188 x218
Impact Assessment Survey
As we’ve been learning on Sundays, we want WCC to be a place you’re inspired, equipped, and mobilized to live life on purpose, but to do that, we need to explore the gifts and skills God has blessed us with, plus the needs, challenges, and opportunities we see where we live, work, and play.
And that’s where our Impact Assessment comes in… please take the necessary time to pray about and share your thoughts on where you (and your family) live, work, and play. PLUS, share with us the opportunities you see around to care for and serve our neighbors, coworkers, and community. And if you're struggling with this aspect of your faith, let us know what would help you engage with others God has placed in your life.
We would like every person (middle school age and up) that considers Warsaw Community Church their home church to complete the assessment separately, which should take around 15 minutes or less to complete.
