Live Mid-week Worship, Thursday June 11th

Join us for our first LIVE digital worship experience as we seek ways to come together during this time apart.


With gratitude, 

we send Co-Pastor Jim Rand into retirement
with so much love & many blessings!  We'll miss you, Jim!

~from all of us at WPC

Jim arrived at Tosa Pres in January 1996 after serving churches in Massachusetts, Delaware, and a student internship in the Bronx, NY.

For him, ministry is not a "one-size-fits-all" approach but requires being nimble and responsive to God’s word in the face of human pain, global upheaval, and societal change. When Scripture and human lives intersect, God speaks and discipleship happens – in surprising, unsettling, often joyous ways. Wrestling with the Unknowable and Unknown (as Jacob does in Gen. 32) leads to blessing for ministry and life-changing encounters.  

Jim is a graduate of Union Presbyterian Seminary in Virginia and Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin. He’s a husband, father and grandfather, bicyclist and baseball player (sort of like little league for old men!). He is honored to serve this congregation and amazed by God's gifts that are here. 


Wauwatosa Presbyterian Church is home to numerous musical groups including the Chancel Choir, Chancel Ringers, Praise Singers, Rainbow Choir (children K5-5th grade), Monarch Ensemble, Master Singers and Piano Arts. Each Sunday several musical selections will enhance your worship experience using the musical talents of children, youth and adults from these groups and the surrounding community. You may be delighted to hear the sounds from the 7ft Mason & Hamlin Grand Piano, bagpipes, hammered dulcimer, timpani, base xylophone, guitars, flutes, oboes or strings.

    The Praise Singers perform once per month at the early service. Rehearsals are held twice a month between services.

  • Contemporary Music Ensemble

    These individuals provide music for the 8:15am service during the year and at every service during the summer. Rehearsals are scheduled as needed, usually on Saturday.
