  1. Articles : MLK Day of Service . . . With a Twist

    Individual and corporate service for others is an essential component of a Christian life well lived and an important part of who we are at WPC. Covid, however, means greater risk for our usual MLK activities of large group projects and sharing a meal indoors. So instead of a single day of service to honor Martin Luther King Jr., our Local Missions Committee is proposing a whole Month of Service in honor of  MLK.

    On any day in January, do at least a three-hour project in service to others. Like what? Here are some ideas:

    • Provide for the needs of someone who can’t; yard work, transportation, cleaning
    • Organize a service project for the kids
    • Serve at established organizations; Meals on Wheels, Food Bank, Schools, etc.
    • Visit shut-ins or other interpersonal time with those in need
    • Do a needed project around WPC.

    Or, maybe consider doing something new or different. When finished, Local Missions would like you to record your service on this Google form. At the end of the month, we will celebrate together all that has been done and all the many ways our congregation cares for others in our community.

     


  2. Articles : New Year, New Focus for Adult Christian Education

    “Do you know about God? Or do you know God? There is a big difference!” — Ben Campbell Johnson

    A new year lies ahead of us. There is so much we don’t know about the coming months and many feel alone, confused, and lost. It is in times like these that we need companions for the journey, as well as the Companion who promises to help us through. In 2022, we invite you to go deeper – to join fellow companions in “finding and following the God we seek.”

    Coming this month, we will begin an exploration of what it means for people of faith to be on pilgrimage. Pilgrimage is both a metaphorical concept as well as a physical journey.  It is to travel to a sacred place for a sacred purpose, but it is also a way of living one’s life before God. We will offer a variety of ways to explore pilgrimage and we hope you’ll join your companions on the journey!
