Who We Are

WFMC offers a sincere church experience – worship that is participatory and genuine – not a show, fellowship with people that are real, ministries that appeal to people of all ages and life stages, a wide variety of age-level ministries and opportunities, and a friendly church family. Since many members of WFMC live a long way, geographically, from their extended family (including the pastoral staff); the church has become their family and it can become yours too.

Our Services

What are services like?
Each worship service lasts approximately one hour and follows a blended format. The two morning services are styled the same; the evening service is a bit more informal in style. We realize that “blended” is a loaded word in church circles. To us, “blended” means using elements of song and liturgy that are warm, friendly, orderly, theologically correct, and that appeal to a variety of tastes and preferences. We intentionally do not target specific age groups with musical styles and other elements of worship. Instead, we strive to create services that relate with and appeal to the wide variety of people in our parish. Everyone should find some element in all of our services they can appreciate. Everyone may find something they don’t particularly value – which is OK; someone else likely does value it. Adopting such a mindset about life and worship helps build Christian character.

What is the community like?
WFMC currently has about 400 adult members, over 600 typically attend worship on a given Sunday morning, and about 1300 persons call WFMC their church home. While this may seem large to some, we try very hard to make our church intimate and accessible to all. We highly value knowing, and being known by, others. We practice a variety of ways of breaking the church down into smaller groups and ministries for this very purpose.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Expect to be welcomed and treated like family. You will see people of a variety of ages, from diverse backgrounds, different countries, and of different skin colors. There will be people dressed in a variety of ways, from shorts and sandals to suits and ties.

Daryl Diddle

It’s been my privilege to serve as a pastor to this great congregation since 1999, and was appointed Senior Pastor in 2004. Annette married me in 1998 and we have three fabulous sons – Benjamin, Paul and David. I wouldn’t trade my calling, as a husband, father and pastor, even if I could. Pretty much any old car (anything pre-1970) catches my interest; I like working around the house and yard too. I have an eclectic collection of degrees from Grove City College (B.A), Asbury Theological Seminary (M. Div), and Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (Ed.D.), but would likely trade them all for a Venti Mocha Frappuccino on any given day.
