WMC Online Event & Auction 2020

Fellowship in the Family Room (Event updated on 3/25/2020)

WHEN: FRIDAY, April 3 at 9:00 AM – April 11th at 9:00 PM.

WHERE: Your Own Living Room

You’re invited to the Western Michigan Christian annual school event/auction which is being held, in YOUR own home!

Greetings WMC Community!

As the ever-changing news of the COVID-19 Virus hits closer to home, and following Governor Whitmer’s executive order, we have made the decision to reformat our event from Fellowship in the Frauenthal to Fellowship in the Family Room.

We may not be able to gather together at this time, but we can still celebrate the mission of WMC in our family rooms!

Similar to our teachers, we are putting together an “online experience.” Since you can’t come to the event, we will bring the event to you!

This event provides a portion of the operating revenue for Western Michigan Christian High School and Middle School, and we are thankful to our sponsors, donors, and volunteers who make this opportunity possible.


It is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT that we have your CURRENT EMAIL on record at WMC. If you do not receive email communications from WMC, please email Scott ASAP to update him with your contact information as this event will be email-based. Please help us spread the word by sharing this event update with alumni who rely on US Post Office for their communications.

We are excited to present our event to you remotely and look forward to being able to gather in fellowship face-to-face in the future.

Thank you for your continued support of WMC!

If you have any questions or concerns, email

Stay tuned – more info to follow.


The more the merrier! Feel free to invite your friends and family by sharing this link on Facebook.


Feel free to contact event organizer Scott Liggett at 231.799.9644 ext. 208 or EMAIL him.


WMC Varsity Soccer team raises money for the bills and training of a Companion Dog for Lucas Barton.

Here’s Lucas’ story…

Meet Lucas. He’s a fun-loving and tenderhearted six-year-old that loves dogs and dinosaurs and likes to build with Legos and Magnatiles. He has a great sense of humor and likes to make everyone laugh. He has such a joyous outlook on life. He enjoys playing with his family and friends and loves the outdoors.

Lucas has recently been diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy, or DMD. This is a rare and progressive disorder that causes his muscles to become weaker over time until it affects the whole body. Right now, his hand and arm strength are diminished and going up stairs, walking, getting up off the floor and playing at the park are difficult and cause him to become fatigued. He needs to take frequent breaks and rest and also experiences muscle cramping and pain.

Something that we can do right now that would give him help every day is to get him a Companion Dog. This dog will need to have special training and certification. A Companion Dog can help him in his everyday life. We hope this dog can open and close doors, pick things off of the floor, give him bracing support, put laundry in a basket, take off his shoes, get help, and so much more. This dog will also help him during stressful Doctor appointments and with anxiety.

On October 5 the Boys Varsity Soccer team and Warrior Nation raised more than $4000 to support Lucas and the Barton family.

The Barton family thanks the WMC Senior Soccer Captains, the Warrior Soccer Team, the Bradford-Royle family, Warrior Nation and Leland fans for their support, prayers and generosity.

***PLEASE NOTE: Lucas and his older sister, Sidney, do not have a full understanding of what DMD is, it’s progression or it’s life-limiting prognosis. We ask that you please not mention or discuss these things around them or to them. Thank you***
