Our Story

In 1946, Mr. Bob Collier donated space to begin the church at his sawmill. A tent revival began at this location with Rev. A.L. Hudnal of Clarksville. In 1951, a building was rented from Mr. Allen Potter (Potter’s Shoe Shop) on Sundays for worship. Until the church moved into its current property, we worshipped in the shoe shop. The property at 619 E. Main Street was purchased in 1951. We worshipped in the basement until the upper level was complete. In 1957, the building was complete and worship began in the current sanctuary. Through the various additions and changes to our facilities, we also worshipped at the Primitive Baptist Church and the Junior High School. Various additions and expansions were made to further the church’s work over the years. More recently, the church has added staff persons and purchased 10 acres of property on Airport Road for a future worship site.
We have surpassed our goal of 1 million dollars for a future facility. We are in very good financial shape. The ten acres is paid for in full. Master Plans are posted on the walls in the lobby and coffee areas of the main building.
We encourage you to continue giving to the building fund. If you are new to WCN, we encourage you to begin giving. In doing so, you aren’t giving for mere bricks and mortar. You are giving to make space for disciples to be made. You are investing in the future work of WCN. Our leadership and church are in agreement that this is the direction in which the Lord is leading us. If you feel led to give, please mark your giving “building fund.” The cost is great, but our God is greater!
WCN’s real story is told in the lives of people. The people of our church have a history of trusting in God. We have repeatedly stepped out on faith, expecting God’s provision and guidance. Whether it be property purchases, staff additions, compensation for pastors, or ministries to others, we step out on faith and trust God with our future. We believe God honors such steps of faith. God is still writing the exciting story of WCN.
