The Bible teaches us that Jesus never stops praying for us—which is good news, indeed. But have you ever wondered exactly what he prays?
Indeed, the lament of Lent leads to the laughter of resurrection, as believers, like us, come more fully alive to the finished work of Jesus and the ongoing work of the “Spirit of adoption” in our lives.
As many of you heard in our worship service, we are looking forward to a new way to celebrate communion together starting this Sunday.
As a precursor to the ultimate washing of their hearts, Jesus humbled himself and washed the feet of his disciples. Yet this lowly act of kindness drew strong pushback from Peter. Why do you suppose Peter was so resistant to allow Jesus to wash his feet?
A Church That Plants Churches
Prayer and reflection on the sermon text for March 19.
"Planting new churches is the most effective evangelistic methodology known under heaven." —C. Peter Wagner
Both experience and data show this to be true, so we are delighted to announce a new partnership with AT3.
Each of these Lenten devotionals is written using the Biblical text of the upcoming sermon at WECC and appropriate for individuals or to use as a family. Please read through the Scripture, and enjoy a few unhurried moments of reflection with God and His word.

On Not Re-Inventing the Wheel
Noeli Nziza, West End, from Burundi!
After only 3 years here in Burundi, we’re a relatively new team, and thus we’re so thankful for the opportunities we’ve had to learn from those who have gone before us.
A New NICU in Burundi
I was born and raised into a Jewish family. My family would talk the talk but wouldn't walk the walk. I was told do observe Jewish customs because that's what we did, but never told "why".
VIDEO - Malnutrition in Burundi
When I first began practicing pediatrics at Kibuye, I found the premies in cardboard boxes completely covered with layers of (often wet) blankets, sometimes with gloves filled with warm water next to them.
Back to School Reflection
Kibuye Hope Hospital is making an impact for nutrition in the hungriest nation on earth (Global Hunger Index 2013).
A lake, a dock and a commitment.
The decision of whether to stay or evacuate had been stressful and fraught with many intense conversations with family, friends, and wise counselors.
Burundi Medical Missions - 3 Years Later
On June 20th I sat on the dock reading to my two boys from their "Bible book". We got to a part in the story about sinners, so I stopped to explain what that means.
It’s not easy to get anywhere from Burundi! But it’s worth the exhaustion to enjoy a break, to see beautiful and interesting new places, and to be encouraged by new and old friends.
