2020~2021 Annual Fund

Our Annual Fund campaign is off to a great start.  We are only one week into our campaign, and we are thankful for each family who has led the way with their gift and support. Our goal is that 100% of our families would participate with a tax-deductible gift of any amount.

You can learn more about the annual fund here. It is easy to give online by visiting our online giving portal. You may also give via text by texting GIVE to 706-222-1551.

Operation Christmas Child ~ 2020 Edition

This year so many things we typically do are either being canceled or being done differently and WCA's Operation Christmas Child is no exception!

Since we will not be able to hold our traditional packing day this year, there are two options available for our families to still be able to participate in this wonderful ministry.

Option 1 - Pack a shoebox at home & bring to WCA the week of November 16th.

Option 2 - Pack a box online for a $25 donation.

Please follow this link for additional details.  Now, more than ever, children around the world need hope!
