We are called by Jesus to love our neighbors – and the way Jesus defines a neighbor in the story he tells in the Bible about the “Good Samaritan” is anyone who needs us, anyone who’s been left by the side of the road. So we encourage everyone here to take care of and give to others.
But, if you’ve ever been guilted into giving or serving by a church, we’re sorry that happened to you. We don’t want you to ever feel that way here at WCC. We believe that when Jesus said, “Love others as I have loved you,” he was trying to teach us that truly caring for others comes from knowing that you’re loved and valuable and enough. And that’s always the starting place for us.
