WWJD Christian Center (WWJD = West Waynesburg Jesus Distributor) is a local non-profit organization, made up of people and support from many local congregations and community organizations. Formerly known as Greater Waynesburg Christian Outreach, their main objective is to see each individual come into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and then grow in their faith using their individual gifts and talents for the glory of God as was the commission. Their work is accomplished from the home-base in West Waynesburg, 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 (which will be offered at GCUW's Stuff the Bus on August 10, 2022), among other community outreach programs.
The organization is led by Pastors Jim and Cathie Carpenter. Information about their programs and volunteer opportunities can be obtained by calling the office at (724) 852-4206 or contacting them on the WWJD Christian Center 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, WWJD Christian Center is planning 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 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 tutor as well as to help out with the upcoming school clothes drive in August. Please email Pastor Cathie Carpenter (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to join this mission in West Waynesburg!
