Here are the full details on how we’ll connect with each other over “Way of Love” during the Lenten Community Book Read. Sign up for the book read in the Mission Center or in myWPC. Books are $15 and are available in the Mission Center.

Movie & Dessert Nights
Wirzba writes about these two movies in “Way of Love,” and we’ll watch them together over dessert on two Fridays in March. Join us in the Parlor from 6:30-9pm to watch:

  • Friday, March 17: Babette’s Feast – When Babette, a French refugee, arrives in a remote Danish town, the tight-knit, puritanical community begrudgingly lets her in. After the town patriarch passes away and Babette insists on preparing a feast in his honor, it changes the townspeople’s lives forever. Sign up in myWPC.
  • Friday, March 31: As It Is In Heaven – After having a breakdown, a famous conductor returns to his remote village and inspires a church choir. Sign up in myWPC.
