The Greater Waynesburg Christian Outreach is a local non-profit organization, made up of people and support from many local congregations and community organizations. Their main objective is to proclaim Jesus Christ by being His hands and feet in the West Waynesburg community. Their work is accomplished from the home-base at the WWJD Christian Center, by offering an elementary after-school program, a community youth group known as West Sides, a summer day camp and the annual school clothes drive, among other community outreach programs.
The organization is led by Pastors Jim and Cathie Carpenter, as well as a board of directors that includes Julia Benco (chair), Jerry and Julie Edgreen and Sally Johnson. Information about our programs and volunteer opportunities can be obtained by calling the office at (724) 852-4206 or contacting them on the Greater Waynesburg Christian Outreach Facebook page.
Many campers have moved from the day camp program where they learned about God for possibly the first time, to attending the West Sides youth group weekly and coming back as volunteers or counselors. Several families have started to attend the WWJD church that started with a child in day camp. They strive to holistically meet the needs of their campers and their families.
Currently, Greater Waynesburg Christian Outreach is getting ready for this year's Summer Camp! It provides children in the area a wonderful, safe place to come weekdays, mid-June through the end of July. Each day campers participate in fun activities, learn about Jesus and receive a free lunch through the Greene County Summer Feeding Program. Children are also able to enjoy the Greene County Water Park twice a week for a discounted entry fee.
There are many opportunities for people to get involved in the West Waynesburg community! They are currently looking for volunteers to serve on our board of directors, as well as to help out with the upcoming school clothes drive in August. Please email Julia Benco (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to join us in ministry to West Waynesburg!
