Our Unique Family Ministry

Mission Statement:  Inspiring and equipping unique families of all shapes, sizes, color & gender to thrive in our complex world by providing them knowledge, support, affirmation, community, and fellowship.

We have developed a Unique Family Ministry at WCC.  Broadly, this ministry offers support to all families, including folks thinking about becoming a family, whether traditional or unique.  This is another meaningful way in which WCC can inspire the world with the inclusive love of Jesus. This ministry is led by Karen Jacques.
