Missions

We view missions as an essential ministry of our church and individual members and are committed to the mobilization of our own resources (prayer, monetary, and human) for the objective of reaching all peoples of the world for Christ.

Willamette supports both local, domestic organizations, as well as international organizations and missionaries in other countries. In 2013, approximately 13% of our finances were used to support global and local community outreach needs.

The Market

We offer the ability to shop for weekly grocery needs on a no-questions asked basis every Sunday at 1pm here at Willamette Christian Church. Food is supplied by the Bridgeport Whole Foods market and generous donors. Questions can be directed to Shari Saling, Hospitality Coordinator.

Adoption and Foster Care

Our goal is to grow the number of fostering and adoptive parents at WCC, as well as provide teams of support and encouragement that will positively increase retention amongst those choosing to foster and/or adopt.
