Check back often for more information about missions and outreach at Wildwood!

Coming on May 20, 2018

Wildwood has a passion for reaching out into the community and around the world in mission and service. In fact, each year when Wildwood celebrates her anniversary, we spend an entire Sunday in service in an event we call "Beyond the Walls."

Beyond the Walls represents a Sunday that we, as a church, serve our local community and internationally, as well. Locally, we have over 20 project sites to assist families with home repairs and maintenance, lawn maintenance, and flood recovery.

Other project sites include assembly of flood buckets on campus; visiting those in nursing homes for conversation and fellowship; individuals to provide spiritual and emotional care for those at sites who have experienced loss; the packaging of 40,000 meals in just 2 hours for the world-wide organization called "Rise Against Hunger." In addition, Compassion International is providing a booth for sponsoring a child in the Dominican Republic.
This is an amazing day to experience and a great opportunity for all ages to serve our community!

Anyone can volunteer!

Each week on Thursdays, 10am to 2pm, people from throughout the community are served through the Family Assistance Ministry. In partnership with the Montgomery County Food Bank, we are able to distribute groceries to families who struggle for food. The Family Assistance Ministry also assists with prescriptions, utilities, and various other ways determined in cooperation between the director and those in need.This growing ministry requires many volunteers.
