Hey, hey, look what is coming!

Things were a little quiet over Christmas allowing us all to catch our breaths a little bit.  But we're ready to crank things back up and get the WCC train rolling!

Re|engage One of the best ministries we offer at WCC has been on the shelf due to COVID, but we would like to make it available again if we have sufficient interest. Re|engage is a game-changing marriage enrichment class that meets weekly in a group setting. It is discussion-based, and is designed to be helpful regardless of the state of your marriage - whether good, shaky, new, crazy, whatever. (Many couples say that its greatest impact is in helping them learn to com

Generosity is the currency of God’s economy – and we want to live by that belief as a church.  We want to be a church that lives and breathes generosity!  So…

Generosity projects

If it seems like we are constantly asking folks at WCC to give to special projects … that’s because we are!  And that is a good thing!  We want to be a generous church, and we want each of us to personally experience the joy and the rewards of giving. In just this past year we have collected backpacks for an Orphanage in Guyana, raised about $1800 through our Lemonade for Hope project, sent over $700 dollars in change to the Next Steps Pregnancy center

How can you overcome your fear in order to share the good news?  Take this four-week class to learn more! Starts November 21st.  Learn more and Sign Up Here!

The church is at its best when it’s people are committed to serving one another—and  that’s true of Waterford Community Church as well.  We encourage everyone to be a part of a  volunteer ministry because we want everyone to experience what it means to have God work in you and through you.   He is at work in our church and community, and He invites us to partner with Him in what He is doing. Our church mission encourages each of us to excel in mission, and that will likely

One of the local ministries that we partner with is Intervarsity at Oakland University. They had a tough season last year as classes were mostly virtual necessitating that campus ministry be conducted largely via Zoom.  But hopefully this year will be different because hopefully the students will be back!

We would like to help them have a great year.  One of the ways Intervarsity meets new students is through "tabling" - they set up a table in the student center and try to

Change for Next Steps

Between Mother's Day and Father's Day several WCC families and individuals filled baby bottles with spare change for the Next Steps Pregnancy Center in Pontiac.  As a church we were able to contribute more than $700 toward the $19,000 that was raised for the Center in the overall project! Wow!

Lemonade for Hope

Last weekend five WCC families hosted lemonade stands to raise money for Oakland Hope.  Last year we raised over $1000.  This year?  The total ra

Lemonade - and other important things

One of the highlights of last summer was our church-wide lemonade stands - and they are back for an encore performance this weekend.  Five families will be hosting lemonade stands, and all proceeds will be going to Oakland Hope to help fight food poverty in our community.  Last year we raised over $1000  - and we're hoping for a another big response this year!

A couple of weeks ago we wondered how many chapters in the book of John we could read in a week as a church.  The answer was well over 500 chapters.  Awesome!  Way to go WCC!

We're still collecting the results (if you haven't checked in yet, you can use the link below), and we'll let you know the total in the latest edition of Waking Up!

We're WONDER-ing...

Each week for the next seven weeks we're going to be asking a question in conjunction with our Sunday series - The Seven Wonders of the Word - that is designed to challenge us as a church (and who doesn't love a challenge?!)

So here is this week's question:

We WONDER how many chapters in the book of John we can read as a church this week? 

We're hoping that each person will dive in and be a part. By reading a chapter a day you can contribute to our overall

Baptisms are happening again!

Baptism is a really important step of faith that every Christ-follower should take.  It's an easy yet bold way to announce to the world that you are "all in" when in comes to Jesus.  Unfortunately, baptism was a casualty of COVID - but not anymore.  If you would like to be baptized please let us know.
