What are people saying about WNC?
“Wednesday Night Connection is a great time of friends, fellowship, food, and learning God’s word. I encourage you to be a part of this!”~WNC staff member, LW
“With life’s stress and struggles and rushing it is wonderful to have a mid-week reminder to take time and think about our Lord and His Majesty around us. This fellowship time is priceless and this time grounds me for the rest of the week until we meet again. ~ WNC Regular KF
“The fall WNC class I attended helped me prepare for Advent. It was a special time with a special group of ladies. Because of this class, I had the best Advent season ever with my family!” ~WNC participant BL

Youth of all ages may participate in Credo Confirmation. We especially encourage middle school youth to participate in this experience!

Leaders: Mike and Susan Acuff
Confirmation continues on the WNC calendar, but will break for winter semester
This semester they will be doing “The Case For…” It is normal for youth to have questions about God. That’s why we are taking a break from confirmation to help the students discover their own individual faith. Figuring out what you believe about Jesus is a life-changing decision – no one should enter into it lightly or alone. Join us.
