These donations will be used to purchase lilies to decorate the Sanctuary on Easter Sunday, and your dedications will be published in a special bulletin insert that day.

    You can donate online or complete a donation form and return it to the church office by Monday, April 10. Donation forms are available in the Mission Center and as well as in worship bulletins on April 2 and April 9. Forms can be placed in the offering plate with your check on Sunday or brought to Elizabeth Takla’s office (108). Checks should be made payable to WPC with “Easter Lilies” in the memo line.


  5. News : 2017 Easter Offering

    Meals on Wheels client with new rampWPC’s annual Easter offering will be collected on Sundays, April 9 and 16. Half of the offering will support One Great Hour of Sharing, an ecumenical effort that began in 1949, and continues to provide relief to those affected by natural disasters, provide food to the hungry, and assist in helping to empower the poor and oppressed.

    Children are invited to collect their offering for One Great Hour of Sharing in a colorful fish bank. Fish banks are brought in during the children’s Palm & Fish Bank Parade at both worship services on Palm Sunday, April 9. If you need one, you can pick up a fish bank in the lobby of the church office. Parents, please have your children in the Courtyard 10 minutes before each service to receive palms for the parade, and don’t forget the fish banks!

    This year, the other half of WPC’s Easter offering will go to Meals on Wheels and Habitat for Humanity. The two have joined forces to open doors for home-bound seniors – literally.

    Imagine a Durham resident in need on one side of a closed door and a volunteer stuck on the other side, unable to help. Too often, the lack of an operational doorbell and/or door handle keeps meals out of the hands of our most vulnerable neighbors because they can’t hear the volunteer at their door or because they physically cannot open their door. A recent survey of 178 Meals on Wheels clients showed that 94 need hearing-impaired doorbells, 42 need pull down door handles, and 28 need accessibility ramps.

    Habitat for Humanity of Durham is leveraging its construction expertise and expansive volunteer force to make critical repairs for Meals on Wheels clients to ensure that meals make it to people who need them most. Please consider supporting this vital work with a donation during the church’s Easter Sunday offering.

    Give online now.
