Welcome to Wedgwood!

At Wedgwood Community Church, we see faith as a journey;
and as a community of faith, it is our desire to be on that journey together, nurturing, encouraging, and giving strength to one another as we learn and grow and move further along our path. We seek to be a place where everyone feels safe to explore a deep connection to God and with each other, knowing that every person's story is different.

We would love to meet you wherever you are on your journey--
so please, come see for yourself who we are at Wedgwood CC!

 Pastor's Ponderings - SUMMER 2015

About Rev. Wim Mauldin

Rev. Wim Mauldin
 

Wim Mauldin has been pastor of Wedgwood Community Church since 2012. He comes from the American Baptist tradition and yet people who listen to him seem surprised because he does not fit what they think of as "Baptist". His training and experiences include those as family counselor, chemical dependency counselor and interventionist, supervisor of chaplains in training, community organizer, and local church pastor. Pastor Wim and his wife have two adult daughters who live in Seattle, WA and Nairobi, Kenya.

 

Summer 2015 Quote Where Is The Goal Line?

Did you know that more people die coming down from Mount Everest than climbing up? One theory about why this happens seems more plausible than any of the rest. Most people focus their attention on getting to the top. That is the thrill of achievement and the focus of most of those who climb. They want to go home and tell their friends that they climbed Mt. Everest. They want to relish that achievement for the rest of their lives. They donít think about the real goal. It is not climbing Mt. Everest, it is getting home safely after climbing Mt. Everest. When we stop and think about it, we say, ďOf course, that is what I meant all along.Ē Yet we donít always act like it.

After most community events, like the Parade and Ice Cream Social, the Lay Leadership Team evaluates the event to see if there are ways we can make it better next year. We ask ourselves if it is achieving the goal we want for all the effort it is taking. Sometimes we make big changes. Evaluation/reflection of the event just past is essential, because our goal is not really the event. Our goal is to grow in our ability to follow Christ in serving the community. That means we can pace ourselves, like those who successfully climb Mt. Everest and return safely. We are not done when the event is over, we can save enough energy to reflect and evaluate.

Reflection/evaluation of the event and of our lives becomes the first stage of planning for next year and for the rest of our life in Christ.
