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!

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.

 

Marty Welch Martha "Marty" Jean (Rucker) WELCH

Our remarkable Marty Welch passed away on Tuesday, February 24. Many of us attended her “thank you” party the preceding Saturday, appreciative of the opportunity to say good-bye to her and see her in such good spirits. As evidenced by a packed church at her memorial service, Marty was dearly loved.

The Rain City Women’s Chorus presented a concert at Wedgwood Community Church in honor of Marty on Sunday, March 22, and per her request the freewill offering was donated to the college tuition fund of Charlette Tapsoba. Nearly $700 was raised!

Marty was one of the most thoughtful, friendly, and giving persons I ever knew. She routinely sent notes of encouragement and gifts to folks who were hurting, baked treats for friends and neighbors, and graciously hosted small groups for church. She was an active participant in many neighborhood outreach projects.

Just walking into a room, Marty made us smile. She volunteered and joined in activities enthusiastically and she had limitless energy, walking miles each week until shortly before her passing. On cruises, Marty participated in every shipboard activity and signed up for the “strenuous exertion” shore excursions. On a Caribbean cruise last summer, she was determined to look up a cousin of hers at one of our ports of call in the Bahamas. Off she went on her own, knowing only her cousin’s name and occupation. As evening fell, we were relieved to see her come bounding up the gangplank. She related a charming account of how she tracked down her cousin and had a brief but delightful visit with her. Inquisitive, vibrant, and intrepid, Marty undertook every project with gusto and good humor.

In the April 2011 issue of the Wedgletter, we interviewed Marty for our Getting to Know series. She said her motto was “Be yourself and be honest. That’s what is best.” That summed up Marty. She was true to herself and forthright. And she was unwaveringly courageous! We will always remember and love our Marty.
