WORSHIP

Due to the importance of Holy Distancing, during the Covid-19 public health crisis, you can join us via Facebook and our You Tube channel. We post the services on Sunday mornings, for you to worship at your convenience.

Christian Development:

WGTCC is a church that LOVES our children! They participate in worship through a weekly Children’s Time and often sing, offer readings or teach the adults a lesson. Their Pageants are always a hit, and something that the children and adults all look forward to!  When it is safe to return to our church building, Rev. Rona will be working with families to offer innovative family programming. 

Our Church School uses Godly Play, a Montessori-based curriculum. It lends itself well to multi-age groups, so all of the children learn together. Tara Leisner is the Head Teacher and is always assisted by a parent.


Music:

Our Minster of Music, Jocelyn Chaparro, earned her BA from University of Southern Colorado and Artists Diploma and graduate studies from Juilliard School of Music. She had an extensive performing career as soloist and chamber musician with major recitals in Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Brooklyn Museum, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum etc.  Jocelyn is a gifted harpist, organist and pianist.

For variety, each month we have a Sunday or two with a guest musician. Our guest musicians are often popular local musicians with a loyal following. Recently, we have been joined by Joe Wilkins, Allen Estes, Alexandra Grace, Renee Dupouis, Nadia Richardson  and Chelsea Barry.

Mission & Outreach:

Through our Mission Giving, we support Our Church’s Wider Mission as well as local agencies, including The Grace Center, The Open Door, Wellspring, Teen Challenge and more.

We hold monthly worship services at Seacoast Rehab and have an active prayer shawl ministry, for people who are going through a hard time. We have blessed and shared over 100 prayer shawls! Pocket Prayer Squares are a comforting reminder of God’s love and the prayers of the church, for anyone to take.

Community Service:
We will continue our tradition of hosting a free community supper at our church one Wednesday each month from October through June, when the public health crisis passes. Please check our calendar for the dates as they may vary from time to time.
Our church building is home to CoDependants Anonymous meetings and is open to other 12-Step Programs.
