"Make disciples who love Jesus and love people."
SUNDAYS 9:00 AM + 10:30 AM
The purpose of WakyMC’s Worship Ministry is to create a space for people to encounter God, engage with His Story, and to meet with God in prayer. We desire to be a group of people who seek to glorify God both through our lives and in song both with passion and excellence. To sing a song involves the whole body and mind to sing, and when the body and mind are engaged, often the heart with follow.
Expectations and Commitment

Our goal is to provide a powerful worship experience every Sunday in order that Jesus may be made known in our community and world.
How should I dress?For all of our services, we want you to be comfortable and wear what you want.
