How to Give to the Mission at WLC

Anyone can give to missions during Sunday’s offering by designating “Missions” or “Family Missions” on their check or offering envelope. Offering envelopes are located on the table in the back of the sanctuary. On the second Sunday of each month, all loose cash in the offering plate goes to missions.

Vision for the Mission at WLC

At WLC, we’re committing to move people who love God through their worship of him into deeper learning experiences about God resulting in laboring together for God in service to our community and world. Our missions committee aims to . . .

  1. Inspire involvement in missions through educational programs.
  2. Attract our young and old to pray, give, and go.
  3. Organize short-term mission experiences.
  4. Faithfully support, steward, and grow missionary roster.

I hope that you’ll catch the vision and be a part of what God is doing at West Lisbon and around the world!
