  1. News : Christmas Shoebox Gifts 2017

    Each year, we invite you to fill a shoebox with gifts for the children in our state’s poorest counties affected by natural disasters like Hurricane Matthew. WPC’s shoeboxes are distributed via UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief), which sends relief teams all over the world to help victims of natural disasters.

    Print the shoebox label and a list of gift ideas. Copies are also available in the Mission Center lobby.

    The gifts will be collected on Sunday, November 26, during the Christ the King parade at both the 8:30 and 11am services. If you have any questions, contact Heather Ferguson.

  3. Sermons : The Story is Still Going On…

    Deuteronomy 34:1-12

    There’s something about being up high, the way the thin air feels. I know some of you have hiked up Lookout Mountain in Montreat, and you get to the top, about 3600 feet, and you can see everything. You look to the north, and you can follow the ridge above the Trestle road toward Greybeard, the peaks beyond turning greyish blue as you look toward Mount Mitchell, the highest peak east of the Mississippi. You look down into the valley, back into the town of Montreat, highlighted by the auditorium, and the lake, and the stone inn. The Seven Sisters peaks frame that side of the valley, but you can also see out farther to the west, out into Black Mountain and beyond, Interstate 40 stretching toward Asheville. Or you can look south, then back to the east and the edges of Ridgecrest. From up high the land opens before you.

  4. Sermons : Self-Examination: A Re-Evaluation of Life

    Matthew 9:9

    Preached by Pastor Leon Dorleans of Haiti Outreach Ministries.
