Wildwood Community Church is for following Jesus together to the glory of God. We are for the church, community, nations, and next generation following Jesus with us! As we live out this mission as a church, we are always looking for ways to reach out in line with this vision. One way we are living this vision out as a congregation is through helping plant a church in Lagoa de Sao Francisco, Brazil in concert with a fantastic set of church planters (& their team), two other Brazilian churches, and Compassion International. Wildwood funded the construction of the building where the church and Compassion Center meet, and in January I had the opportunity to visit this church on the weekend they dedicated the facility. What a blessing!
On the weekend of March 8-11 at Wildwood, we are celebrating God’s work through the church in Lagoa de Sao Francisco, but also presenting the opportunity for Wildwood members to sponsor children in the Compassion center in Lagoa de Sao Francisco. All weekend long, people can tour the Compassion Experience (an interactive walkthrough showing the life of a Compassion child) on site at Wildwood. Also, on Sunday, March 10, I will be presenting the vision and opportunity through this church plant in our Sunday worship services (9:45 and 11:00).
