At WECRC we believe Christians are called to be generous with the resources God has entrusted to us. We are inspired to give freely of ourselves, our time, our talents and our treasures as the visible expression of our love for God and each other. During this period of COVID-19 we encourage you to continue tithing and steady giving, recognizing that some of you will be hard hit financially in this difficult time. May God provide.
TODAY: Disability Concerns. The mission of Disability Concerns is to bring about the full participation of all people with disabilities in the life of the church, and the full participation of the church in the lives of people with disabilities. Find out more at https://www2.crcna.org/disability.
